Anatomy Term : FBbt:00004905 border follicle cell Fly Anatomy

Namespace  fly_anatomy.ontology Obsolete  false
description  A follicle cell that migrates from the anterior pole of the egg chamber, between the nurse cells, to the anterior of the oocyte where they participate in formation of the micropyle. About 6-10 border cells per egg chamber migrate as a tightly associated cluster.

FBbt:00004905 border follicle cell A follicle cell that migrates from the anterior pole of the egg chamber, between the nurse cells, to the anterior of the oocyte where they participate in formation of the micropyle. About 6-10 border cells per egg chamber migrate as a tightly associated cluster.
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: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.
