Bottle cells are large (about 18 X 6 [micro]m) cells that are located between flagellated cells but have no flagellum themselves (Fig.
In most cases, a part of the cell is inserted between flagellated cells, but the greater part protrudes into a central cavity.
Although the structure of the choanocyte flagellum is similar to that of larval flagellated cells, the flagellar basal apparatus is quite different.
The coeloblastulae of Leucosolenia laxa consist of four kinds of cells: flagellated cells, bottle cells, vesicular cells, and free cells in a central cavity.
The flagellated cells of coeloblastulae pass through the intermediate stage of dedifferentiation in a settled larva before they differentiate to the cells of a juvenile sponge.
We suggest that mannose receptors are present on the surface of phagocytes in the larvae (as shown in a variety of other organisms) (9) and that such receptors recognize and bind with mannose on apoptotic flagellated cells.
Our study supports the theory that peripheral flagellated cells in Microciona larvae are terminally differentiated; their fate is apoptosis and eventually phagocytosis.
The larval surface region consists of a pseudostratified columnar epithelium of elongate flagellated cells; however, a basal lamina is absent [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
Thus the deeper the nucleus occurs, the longer the flagellated cell.
We found minute electron-dense granules concentrated in the apical cytoplasm near the free surface of larval flagellated cells [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 1, 2 OMITTED
Figure 4 shows that flagellated cells are losing their characteristic morphology and the pseudostratified columnar epithelium is in the course of disorganization at the surface of such metamorphosing larva.
Amoeboid cells derived from flagellated cells migrate to the inner part of the metamorphosing larva; these amoeboid cells have residual flagellar axonemes [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 6, 7 OMITTED].
