Fifteen ring canals or intercellular bridges connect the oocyte and 15 nurse cells in Drosophila. Recently, Koch and King (1969) proposed that these ring canals formed independently of a cell furrow and that cytokinesis during the 4 cell divisions producing the 16 cells occurred through fusion of vesicles aligned along the division plane. Serial sections of germaria, fixed with glutaraldehyde, have been studied with the electron microscope, and no evidence has been found for fusion of vesicles… CONTINUE READING
