    Notes: Summary Ultrastructural studies on developing egg chambers of the moth, Ephesita kühniella reveal that the precursors of the vitelline membrane are synthesized within follicle cells which are in contact with the oocyte. The vitelline membrane precursors appear to be synthesized by the rough-surfaced endoplasmic reticulum, and this material apparently moves to the Golgi cisternae where the definitive vitelline membrane precursor body is produced. The previtelline bodies are then secreted into the spaces between the oocyte and follicle cells, where they fuse to form a continuous membrane. Chorion formation begins with the deposition of a layer of tubules at the outer edge of the vitelline membrane which coalesce to form the inner edge of a thin, striated layer. In subsequent stages, several compartmented layers are rapidly secreted external to the striated layer, giving rise to the mature chorion.

    Notes: Summary Electron microscopic studies of oogenesis in Drosophila melanogaster suggest that the ovarian follicle cells alone are responsible for the secretion of the vitelline membrane and chorion. The synthesis and assembly of the vitelline membrane is a complex process involving several stages of development and different populations of follicle cells. This combined autoradiographic and ultrastructural investigation of vitelline membrane formation has led to the conclusion that the protein component of the vitelline membrane is synthesized in the follicle cells, and that these cells possess a mechanism which directs the polarized synthesis and deposition of vitelline membrane and chorion in response to contact by a specific cell, the oocyte. Under certain aberrant conditions, however, other cell types may serve to induce formation of these membranes. The concept of Drosophila egg coverings as maternal cuticle is also discussed, with regard to the embryonic origin of secreting cells, the requirement for adjacent cells as inducers, and the differences in ultrastructural mechanisms of formation.
