  • Abstract The ultrastructure of cuticular formation was studied during the first 8 days of development in Romanomermis culicivorax . On day 1 the plasma membranes of the blastomeres show no specialization. On day 2 short pseudopodial extensions from some of the outer cells begin to migrate over adjacent cells. Small spherical amembraneous structures, which may be connected by fine strands, are present external to the outer layer of cells. During day 3 many of the surface cells are polarized as… CONTINUE READING
