1. If the second maturation spindle of the egg of Ilyanassa is displaced from the animal pole by centrifugal force, a giant polar body may be formed. If the sperm nucleus is included in the giant polar body the latter, instead of the egg proper, may develop.2. The close of the maturation division in centrifuged and elongated eggs is attended by the production of clusters of cytoplasmic lobes around the region where the achromatic figure lay. These lobes are distinct from the normal polar lobe.3… Expand
Development of centrifuged Limnaea stagnalis eggs with giant polar bodies
TLDR
The normal development of the antipolar fragment is discussed with respect to the amount and kind of egg cortex, cytoplasmic inclusions and hyaloplasm removed from the egg via a giant polar body. Expand
Cell Cleavage in Polar Body Formation
TLDR
The generalization that, when mitosis is followed by normal cytokinesis in plants and animals, the “cleavage takes place in a plane approximately at right angles to the spindle axis and primarily across its equatorial plane” is shown to be true. Expand

Cytological aspects of fertilization in the lamellibranch, Mytilus edulis. I. Polar body formation and development of the female pronucleus.
Aspects of fertilization encompassing the meiotic events of the maternal chromatin, the formation of the polar bodies, and the development of the female pronucleus have been investigated in theExpand
Spermatogonial Budding in Fleabeetles
TLDR
Evolution may have utilized the budding to limit reduction of cell size that otherwise occurs in succesive cell cycles of definitive gonia. Expand
Chemical Embryology of Invertebrate Eggs
TLDR
Unequal distribution of chemical substances in different plasms that have different localization and morphogenetic significance has been recently described in both mosaic and regulative eggs; curiously enough, these substances are almost always linked to mitochondria. Expand

TLDR
The fine structure of the animal pole cortex is examined in the fertilized Tubifex egg undergoing the formation of the second meiotic apparatus (MA), which appears to be tethered to the egg surface by the structural connection between the filamentous cortical layer and microtubules of the peripheral aster.

TLDR
The nuclei of preimplantation mouse embryos were identified after labelling with either DAPI or Hoechst 33258 and the displacement may be critical for the generation of a range of sizes of blastomeres in the 16-cell embryo. Expand

Current theories of cytokinesis are reviewed and critically analyzed. The expanding membrane theory and the theory of astral cleavage are shown to be unsatisfactory. Mechanisms which appear to haveExpand

TLDR
In this more sophisticated era, as the authors' attention is more and more taken up with studies on living protoplasm, some danger may perhaps lurk in too pious a faith in methods that cut looseogether from cytological technique or even fro m the results obtained by its troublesome practice. Expand
