Microtubule organization and distribution of gamma-tubulin in male meiosis of lepidoptera.

Abstract

Meiotic spindles in males of higher Lepidotera are unusual in that the bulk of the spindle microtubules (MTs) ends about halfway between the equatorial plate and the centrosomes in metaphase. It appears worthwhile to determine how the MTs are nucleated, while their pole proximal ends are distant from the centrosomes. To this end, spermatocytes of… (More)
