Gonadal development in Rhacophorus arboreus, a sexually semidifferentiated type of tree frog, was observed by means of the electron microscope, and cell proliferation kinetics were examined autoradiographically. The genital ridge consisted of coelomic epithelial cells and primordial germ cells. The gonadal medulla was formed by the segregation of epithelial cells within the primordial gonad. Thereafter, the medullary cell mass was well developed and oogenesis began in the gonadal cortex… CONTINUE READING
