Cytochrome oxidase cytochemistry was used to unequivocally identify the spread of mitochondria during oogenesis in the adult Japanese quail. This enabled us to compare their distribution with the distribution in the Xenopus laevis oocyte (Tourte et al, 1984). In the quail the paranuclear mitochondrial cloud initially disperses homogeneously but afterwards segregates into 2 populations: (i) a population localized in the basophilic cortical layer (surrounding the vegetal pole); and (ii) clusters… CONTINUE READING
