FBbt:00004878 nurse cell One of a group of 15 germ cells that lie anterior to the oocyte within the egg chamber. Their cytoplasm is contiguous with the oocyte via ring canals.
FBbt:00004865 ovary  
FBbt:00004860 germline cell  
FBbt:00004894 egg chamber Female germline cyst that is not part of a germarium.
FBbt:00004873 female germline stem cell Female germline cell and stem cell from which all other female germline cells develop.
FBbt:00004893 ovariole An egg assembly line. Consists of a germarium at the anterior tip connected to a chain of egg chambers, each one more mature than the preceding, more anterior egg chamber in the chain. Each ovariole is encased in a peritoneal sheath. A typical ovary contains about 16 ovarioles.
FBbt:00004875 germline cyst A developing unit of gametogenesis consisting of germline cells encapsulated by a layer of somatic cells.
FBbt:00004877 cystocyte Female germline cell born during one of four rounds of cell division following the birth of a cystoblast from a female germline stem cell until the point where one of the resulting 16 cells (the presumptive oocyte) enters meiosis. Cystocytes are interconnected by ring canals. The oocyte develops from one of two cystocytes that contain 4 ring canals.
FBbt:00004861 germline stem cell Stem cell that is the precursor of gametes.
FBbt:00004876 cystoblast Female germline cell which is the daughter of a female germline stem cell.
FBbt:00004864 female reproductive system  
FBbt:00004858 gonad The organ of the reproductive system in which the germ cells reside.
FBbt:00057012 female germline cell  
FBbt:00007137 female germline cyst A cyst of female germ cells interconnected by ring canals. Each cyst originates as a single cystoblast which divides to form 16 cystocytes. These become enveloped in a follicle cell epithelium as they pass through region 2 of the germarium. Cysts that have left the germarium are termed egg chambers.
FBbt:00004874 oogonial cell  
FBbt:00000001 organism An individual member of the species Drosophila melanogaster.
FBbt:00007016 material anatomical entity  
FBbt:00004857 reproductive system  
FBbt:00007001 anatomical structure Material anatomical entity that has inherent 3D shape, whose parts are all connected and that is generated by coordinated expression of the organism's own genome.
FBbt:00007011 female organism Gonochoristic organism that can produce female gametes.
FBbt:00007010 multi-tissue structure Anatomical structure that has as its parts two or more portions of tissue of at least two different types and which, through specific morphogenetic processes, forms a single distinct structural unit demarcated by bona fide boundaries from other distinct structural units of different types.
FBbt:00004856 organ system A division of the whole organism into specialized systems.
FBbt:00100313 multicellular structure Anatomical structure that has multiple cells as parts.
FBbt:10000000 anatomical entity Anatomical entity which is part_of Drosophila melanogaster.
FBbt:00007002 cell Anatomical structure that has as its parts a maximally connected cell compartment surrounded by a plasma membrane.
FBbt:00007014 stem cell Undifferentiated cell which retains its identity while budding off cells which differentiate.
FBbt:01004878 presumptive nurse cell
