An ultrastructural analysis has been made of certain ovarian chambers undergoing abnormal development. The earliest morphological change in these chambers consists of the alteration of the nuclear material which is then followed by engulfment of portions of the nurse cell cytoplasm, including the nuclear fragments, into the overlying follicle cells. The continuation of this process leads to the progressive disappearance of nurse cells with the concomitant formation of huge dense vacuoles in the… CONTINUE READING
