Chromatoid body (CB) was identified as granules stained by basic dye 130 years ago and called by various names. Electron microscopy revealed that the CB belonged to nuage (cloud in French) specific for germ cells. We described the localization of several proteins, including RNA helicases, in the nuage compartments classified into six types and in several spermatogenic cell-specific structures. All the proteins examined were detected in the nuage, including the CB with different staining… CONTINUE READING
