Description

This video shows a cytoplast in the process of forming. Early in the sequence the cytoplast is still attached by a retraction fiber to its parent cell. As the retraction fiber breaks, the cytoplast is suddenly released from the parent cell. The cytoplast then reabsorbs the retraction fiber and migrates autonomously. Video made available thru Mark Cooper and Zebrafish-The Living Laboratory.
