THE initial events of differentiation of genetically identical nuclei within the eggs of higher organisms are generally believed to be triggered by a heterogeneous distribution of substances within the egg1,2. One of the clearest examples of such differential distribution of determinative substances concerns the posterior polar plasm of some insects. Morphological observations suggest that all cleavage nuclei in such insects have identical developmental potential, and that only the few nuclei… Expand
