Abstract

Abstract The spermatozoon of Xenopus consists of a coiled head 20 μm long and of a tail 40 μm long. The acrosome is a thin vesicle capping the anterior region of the nucleus. A manchette of mitochondria surrounds the posterior region of the nucleus, the two centrioles, and the beginning of the flagellum. The flagellum shows a conventional 9∗2+2 appearance and is devoid of any accessory structure.
