Osmium Zinc Iodide staining of Golgi elements in oocytes of Triturus cristatus


Developing oocytes of the newt Triturus cristatus were studied in order to clarify the role played by the Golgi apparatus in the formation of yolk. The cytochemical method used for this purpose was that of Maillet (1968) which employs an Osmium Zinc Iodide (OZI) complex. Previtellogenic oocytes reveal a pattern of OZI staining only after hormonal (HCG… (More)
