Abstract

OVARIAN tissue has been much used in insect tissue culture; indeed, several cell lines derived from ovaries of the silkmoth Antheraea eucalypti are now being maintained in continuous culture1,2. The cell lines are believed to be derived from cells of the ovariole sheath found in the primary cultures, and after 120 generations in vitro they have nuclei which range in ploidy from 2n to approximately 128n. The three distinct cell types in these lines apparently undergo only mitotic divisions typical of somatic cells or of primordial germ cells.
