Microinjection of intracellular tracers fluorescein, Procion Yellow, Lucifer Yellow and horseradish peroxidase unequivocally showed the syncytial structure of the tropharium and its interaction with the oocytes. The tropharium tip is a separate isolated compartment. Finger-like nurse cell projections comprising the syncytial tropharium interact via gap junctions along their abutting membranes and also via large cytoplasmic continuities at the central trophic core. The trophic cords connecting… CONTINUE READING
