Abstract Jellyless body cavity eggs, matured to the second meiotic metaphase, become activated when pricked with a glass needle. Transfers of blastula nuclei were made into such activated, nonenucleated, host eggs. The ability of the jellyless eggs to undergo normal cleavage and development was then compared with that of uterine host eggs. The results showed that body cavity eggs (82% of total) were as capable as uterine eggs (84%) of participating in genuine cleavage. Approximately equal… CONTINUE READING
