The ultrastructure of the vitellar follicles, vitellocyte development, and the vitelloduct are described. The follicles are enclosed in a cytoplasmic sheath that sends processes toward the follicle center, filling the space between the vitellocytes. Immature vitellocytes are rounded and show few organelles. During maturation, the vitellocytes increase in volume and a well-elaborated endoplasmic reticulum and numerous dictyosomes are built up; shell protein vesicles and eventually lipid droplets… CONTINUE READING
