Fertilization envelope in diapause eggs of Pontella mediterranea (Crustacea, Copepoda).

Abstract

The sequence and timing of morphological changes during envelope formation was followed in diapause eggs of Pontella mediterranea (Crustacea, Copepoda). The multilayer coat enveloping these eggs resulted from the exocytosis of 4 types of cortical vesicles that sequentially released their contents in the perivitelline space. These included small high-density… (More)
