Methods for studying oogenesis

Sokol NS, Cooley L. On in primordial germ cells.

The actin cables prevent nurse cell nuclei from being squeezed into ring canals where they would block the flow of cytoplasm to the oocyte. This results in no apparent antibody labeling in the center of mid- oogenesiss late-stage egg chambers, leaving only a peripheral fluorescent signal. Please note that during the production process errors may be discovered which could affect the content, and all legal disclaimers that apply to the journal pertain.

A major change in cell cycle also takes place in follicle cells. Isolation and characterization of sex-linked female-sterile mutants in Drosophila melanogaster. A new wave of cellular imaging.

The latter two approaches are far easier to carry out and are more commonly used, but transplantation experiments can be useful in certain circumstances. Quantitative analysis of gene function in the Drosophila embryo. On in primordial germ cells, on in germarium, low in early stages, then high in late stages.


Three new Drosophila markers of intracellular membranes. Zhu C-H, Xie T. If fixation artifacts are suspected, the organization of F-actin in fixed cells can be compared to the distribution of fluorescent protein fusions that label the F-actin cytoskeleton Table 4 in live cells, as done in Huelsmann et al [ 29 ].

Abstract Drosophila oogenesis is an excellent system for the study of developmental cell biology.

Methods for studying oogenesis

Localization of bicoid mRNA in late oocytes is maintained by continual active transport. In preparation for this nurse cell dumping, stage 10B egg chambers produce cables of unipolar actin filaments that grow from the nurse cell membranes inward until they reach the nuclear envelope [ 2829 ].

Examination of the function of two kelch proteins generated by stop codon suppression. Integration of contractile forces during tissue invagination.

Cellular and molecular mechanisms of border cell migration analyzed using time-lapse live-cell imaging. Lehmann R, Tautz D. As mentioned in Section 1. Olgenesis allows them to be unambiguously identified in the iogenesis, and they can be transplanted from one embryo to another using micromanipulation. The probability of mosaic expression levels should be taken into consideration when interpreting results of an experiment involving Gal4-mediated expression.

Therefore, some method of optical section microscopy is highly recommended. Many mechanistic insights into RNA localization required the ability to observe the process in vivo.

When recombination jyrnal induced in germ line stem cells or their progenitors, germ cells will be generated that are oogsnesis for the mutation of interest and, importantly, lack the ovo D1 mutation. Each of the ovarioles produces approximately two eggs per day, or over 60 eggs from a young, well-fed female [ 6 ].


Thus, stage 8 serves as a metabolic checkpoint that triggers egg chamber destruction while preserving less mature egg chambers poised to resume development when conditions improve.

Active areas of research include stem cell maintenance, gamete development, pattern formation, cytoskeletal regulation, intercellular communication, intercellular transport, cell polarity, cell migration, jkrnal death, morphogenesis, cell cycle control, and many more. Production of their imago descendants by germ-line transplantation. Reassessing the role and dynamics of nonmuscle myosin II during furrow formation in early Drosophila embryos.

Mitotic recombination A versatile and widely used system to generate genetic mosaics in oogenesis is mitotic recombination. A regulatory network of Drosophila germline stem cell self-renewal.

Diversity of cell death pathways: Female sterile mutations on the second chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster. In addition to negative marking, the MARCM system Mosaic analysis with a repressible clonal marker allows mutant cells to be positively marked by a UAS reporter transgene [ 69 ].

Harrison DA, Perrimon N. Cell death during Drosophila melanogaster early oogenesis is mediated through autophagy.
