Identifier Name Description
FBbt:00004904 follicle cell The cells that make up the inner lining of the ovariole.
FBbt:00004865 ovary  
FBbt:00004894 egg chamber Female germline cyst that is not part of a germarium.
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:00004903 follicle stem cell  
FBbt:00004864 female reproductive system  
FBbt:00004858 gonad The organ of the reproductive system in which the germ cells reside.
FBbt:00000124 epithelial cell Cell that has as its part a cytoskeleton that allows for tight cell to cell contact and which has apical-basal cell polarity.
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:00007005 epithelium Portion of tissue, that consists of one or more layers of cells with distinct apical-basal polarity, connected to each other by cell junctions.
FBbt:00000001 organism An individual member of the species Drosophila melanogaster.
FBbt:00007016 material anatomical entity  
FBbt:00004857 reproductive system  
FBbt:00007006 developing material anatomical entity  
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:00007003 portion of tissue Anatomical structure, that consists of similar cells and intercellular matrix, aggregated according to genetically determined spatial relationships.
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:00007008 somatic precursor cell  
FBbt:00007344 somatic stem cell Stem cell that is a progenitor of somatic cells.
FBbt:00006010 gonadal somatic stem cell Any somatic stem cell (FBbt:00007344) that is part of some gonad (FBbt:00004858).
FBbt:00100318 somatic cell  
FBbt:00007014 stem cell Undifferentiated cell which retains its identity while budding off cells which differentiate.
FBbt:00006030 somatic cell of ovary
