Phorid flies occur worldwide in a great diversity of habitats, and have medical and ecological importance, but their mechanisms of oogenesis have not been well documented. This mature ovary from a phorid fly displays tightly synchronized egg chamber development. F-actin, primarily visible in the ovarian muscle sheath, is in green; DNA is in red, and wheat germ agglutinin staining is in blue; mounted in VECTASHIELD® antifade; confocal microscopy tile-scan Z-projection. The field is 2.2 mm wide.
Products used: VECTASHIELD® Antifade Mounting Medium – (H-1000-10).
