The origin of the zygotic centrosome is an important step in developmental biology. It is generally thought that sperm at fertilization plays a central role in forming the functional centrosome which subsequently organizes the first mitotic spindle. However, this view is not applicable in the case of parthenogenetic eggs which develop without the sperm contribution. To clarify the problem of the origin of the zygotic centrosome during parthenogenetic development, we studied a hymenopteran… CONTINUE READING
