Regulation of the first spindle formation in brown algal zygotes was described. It is well known that there are three types of sexual reproduction in brown algae; isogamy, anisogamy and oogamy. Paternal inheritance of centrioles can be observed in all these cases, similar to animal fertilization. In isogamy and anisogamy, female centrioles (= flagellar basal bodies) selectively disappear and male centrioles remain after fertilization. In a typical oogamy (e.g. fucoid members), liberated egg… CONTINUE READING
