Behaviors of nucleus, basal bodies and microtubules during eupyrene and apyrene spermiogenesis in the silkworm, Bombyx mori (Lepidoptera).

Abstract

Observations with immunostaining for tubulin and electron microscopy revealed that silkworm eupyrene spermiogenesis was characterized by an attachment of the basal body to the nucleus except in the period of movement for unidirectional arrangement. In young eupyrene sperm, a microtubule basket caught the nucleus, which thereafter was transformed… (More)
