... translocation are inseparable. We also learned that cortical granule translocation requires association with microfilaments but not microtubules. It is clear from endocytosis assays that microfilament motors are functional prior to meiosis, even though cortical granules do not use them. However, just after GVBD...

.... Microtubule inhibitors such as nocodazole and colchicine inhibit the localization of Vgl mRNA in late stage III/early stage IV oocytes, but have no effect on Vgl mRNA once it is localized. The microfilament inhibitor cytochalasin B, however, has little effect on thetranslocation of Vgl mRNA in middle-stage...

The blastomeres were analysed immediately for the distribution and state of organization of their microvilli, using three morphological techniques. The results indicate that the surface pole, characterized by microvilli containing CCD...

... to the contact point between cells. In contrast to surface polarity, the development of cytoplasmic polarity was suppressed by both micro tubule- and microfilament-inhibiting drugs, which also reversed it rapidly. In polar 16-cell blastomeres surface polarity was influenced in a similar manner to that of 8-cell...
