SomaticFIG 8A&B: Changes in spermathecal lumen shape and size observed between and during fertilizations.
Epifluorescent images of adult spermatheca from dissected gonads.
A. Empty adult spermatheca co-immunostained with anti-RNF-5 antibodies (red, Ring Finger Protein 5, which localizes to septate junctions on the apical/lumenal surface) and anti-AJM1/MH27 antibodies (green, Apical Junction Molecule 1, which localizes to adherens, and pleated and smooth/continuous septate junctions of the apical/lumenal and lateral borders) (Broday et al., 2004). (Sp) Spermatheca.
B. Inflated adult spermatheca immunostained with anti-AJM-1/MH27 antibodies (red). Magnification, 1000x. (Image source: L. Broday and
