Vitellogenesis and vitellocytes of Cainocreadium labracis were studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and TEM cytochemistry. Four developmental stages were distinguished during vitellogenesis: (I) stem cell of high nucleo-cytoplasmic ratio; (II) early differentiation with chief activity focused on the beginning of protein synthesis and shell globule formation; (III) advanced differentiation with rapid intensification of protein synthesis, progressive fusion of single shell globules… Expand
Functional ultrastructure and cytochemistry of vitellogenesis stages of Rohdella amazonica (Aspidogastrea, Aspidogastridae, Rohdellinae), a parasite of the Amazoninan banded puffer fish Colomesus psittacus
TLDR
Results from a basal trematode lead to a better understanding of the phylogenetic, functional, and developmental relationships among vitellogenesis patterns as they relate to egg formation, embryonic development, and life cycles among trematodes and cestodes. Expand
Interrelationships of vitelline and muscle cells within the vitelline follicles of the blood fluke Aporocotyle simplex (Digenea, Aporocotylidae) and morphological evidence for the modification of vitelline material for eggshell formation
TLDR
Modifications of the vitelline globules within the clusters and the structure of the eggshell of A. simplex may prove to be of value in studies examining relationships between the three distinct lineages of aporocotylid digeneans. Expand
Comparison of the Benzanthrone Luminophores: They Are Not Equal for Rapid Examination of Parafasciolopsis fasciolaemorpha (Trematoda: Digenea)
TLDR
Developed dyes and staining protocol resulting in imaging of all parts of trematode without additional sample preparation procedures, which usually are required for parasite examination. Expand

Ultrastructural study of vitellogenesis in Maritrema feliui (Digenea, Microphallidae)
TLDR
During vitellogenesis in the microphallid trematode Maritrema feliui, four stages are distinguished: a stem cell stage of the gonial type, an advanced differentiation stage concentrated on a rapid intensification of protein synthetic activity, the progressive fusion of individual shell globules into large shell globule clusters and the formation of saturated lipid droplets and a small amount of β-glycogen particles in the peripheral cytoplasm.

Ultrastructure and cytochemistry of vitellogenesis in Wenyonia virilis Woodland, 1923 (Cestoda, Caryophyllidea)
TLDR
The nutritive function of vitellocytes appears greatly reduced in W. virilis, a fact perhaps related to the intrauterine development of the early embryos. Expand
Ultrastructural and cytochemical study on vitellogenesis in the diphyllidean cestode Echinobothrium euterpes (Echinobothriidae) and its phylogenetical implications
TLDR
Some hypotheses concerning the interrelationship between this pattern of vitellogenesis, possible mode of egg formation, embryonic development and diphyllidean life cycle, and their phylogenetic implications are drawn and discussed. Expand
Electron microscope study of vitellogenesis in Glaridacris catostomi (Cestoidea: Caryophyllidea).
TLDR
The functional significance of the large amount of nuclear and cytoplasmic glycogen and numerous shell globule clusters is analyzed and some conclusions, concerning the interrelationship between the vitellogenesis pattern and the type of embryogenesis following it, are drawn. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that there may be a double origin of lamellar bodies: either from the endoplasmic reticulum or through transformation of shell globule/shell globule clusters. Expand
