a. Delamination is the splitting of one cell layer into two parallel layers. b. Epiboly is the spreading movement of an epithelial layer over a deeper cell layer. c. Invagination is the local inward buckling of an epithelium. d. Involution is the migration of single cells from an epithelial layer into an embryonic cavity. 8. Localized Cytoplasmic Determinants a.

The polar granules of insects are located at the anterior egg pole. d. The yellow myoplasm of ascidians acts as a germ cell determinant. EXCHANGE WORDS (2 points per pair) The following statements are erroneous. However, each one can be corrected by exchanging two single words. Circle these two words within each statement. 9/10. By applying the acrosome technique, researchers have shown that bindin is localized on the acrosomal process of sea urchin sperm that have undergone the immunostaining reaction. 11/12. Involution is defined as the flowing of an expanding outer epithelium over the inside of an opening
