  1. NOTE - Bb: Balbiani body staining/localization; ec: egg chamber; GV: immature oocyte, in which the mitochondria are aggregated around the germinal vesicle; GVBD: once oocyte maturation commences the GV breaks down and the mitochondria are seen to disperse throughout the cytoplasm during maturation, resulting in mitochondria occupying most of the egg volume; MII: metaphase II; Ov: ovulated = in vivo maturation; non-m: non-matured; IVM: in vitro maturation; *5,5′,6,6′-Tetrachloro-1,1′,3,3′-tetraethyl-benzimidazolylcarbocyanine iodide.
