Electron and immunofluorescence microscopy on the fertilization ofFucus distichus (Fucales, Phaeophyceae)


Processes of fertilization and zygote development inFucus distichus were studied by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy using anti-β tubulin antibody and electron microscopy. Just after plasmogamy, sperm aster formation occurs during migration of a sperm nucleus toward an egg nucleus at the center of cytoplasm. Only sparse microtubules (MTs) exist around… (More)
