Abstract The ultrastructural, immunocytochemical and electrophysiological aspects of the telotrophic ovariole are reviewed, using Rhodnius prolixus as the example. During embryonic development, multiple germ cells become established within each of the 7 ovarioles per ovary. The structural and functional polarity develops during post-embryonic development, resulting in the cytoskeletal-rich adult ovariole. Attention is focused on the cytoskeletal aspects, including microtubules, molecular motors… CONTINUE READING
