A Balbiani body and the fusome mediate mitochondrial inheritance during Drosophila oogenesis.

Abstract

Maternally inherited mitochondria and other cytoplasmic organelles play essential roles supporting the development of early embryos and their germ cells. Using methods that resolve individual organelles, we studied the origin of oocyte and germ plasm-associated mitochondria during Drosophila oogenesis. Mitochondria partition equally on the spindle during… (More)
