Polarized oogenic cysts are clonal syncytia in which cellular compartments (cystocytes) differentiate as either oocytes or nurse cells-supportive germ cells that transport material to the oocyte through cytoplasmic bridges. Although polarized cysts have evolved independently in several animal phyla, most research on this phenomenon has focused on insects… CONTINUE READING
