Movie showing two fertilized eggs undergoing meiosis

Organism : Ascidian
Species : Phallusia mammillata

On the right is a Ch-Mos::Rfp1-expressing egg extruding two PBs, but no PN can be seen even in the sperm aster region (seen towards the end of the movie). Some pictures of this sequence have been used in Fig. 4A. Total time: 80 minutes.
