The development and possible function of the primary pore canal (PPC) in plutei of the sea urchin Temnopleurus hardwicki was examined by immunochemistry, electron microscopy and microsurgery. Left and right PPC that extended from coelomic sacs in plutei contained a bundle of cilia with a 9 + 2 structure that was initially detected as a group of anti-acetylated tubulin antibody-binding granules in the epithelium of coelomic sacs in 28 h postfertilization (PF) prism larvae. The granules extended… CONTINUE READING
