Localization of mitochondrial ribosomal RNA on the chromatoid bodies of marine planarian polyclad embryos.


Electron-dense cytoplasmic structures, referred to as chromatoid bodies, are observed in the somatic stem cells, called neoblasts, and germline cells in adult planarians. Although it has been revealed that the chromatoid bodies morphologically resemble germline granules in Drosophila and Xenopus embryos, what essential role it plays in the planarian has… (More)
