Abstract

Cytoplasmic threads found on the luminal surface of the developing chick neuroepithelium contain a remnant of the spindle complex and an electron-dense midbody. Most threads become long and thin and eventually split at the midbody. This finding suggests that the midbody plays a role in the final separation of daughter cells.
