The cortical cytoplasm of the developing oocyte of Rana pipiens has been investigated by cytochemical means. Particular emphasis is placed on the nature and distribution of polysaccharide protein complexes. With toluidine blue O, both living and fixed mature oocytes were found to possess a distinct metachromatic region just under the developing vitelline membrane. Younger oocytes, at the previtelline-stage, did not exhibit metachromasia in this region. Comparative studies suggested a similarity… CONTINUE READING
