Fig. 25. Low-power micrograph shows a not mid-polar section through the oocyte

This low-power micrograph shows a section that is not mid-polar through the oocyte since the paranuclear Balbiani vitelline body was present in deeper sections. Note that a stack of annulate lamellae is attached to nuclear mernbrane, that a Variety of organelles are closely applied to the entire circuinference of the oocyte nucleus and that. endoplasmic reticulum is present as distended channels. ll 35-4; 2% glutaraldehyde. X 2800.
