Definition of Term

telolecithal eggs
(english) In contrast to most invertebrates (holoblastic cleavage, yolk incorporated into the dividing cells), teleosts have telolecithal eggs, with the yolk mass separate from the developing embryo. This type of egg undergoes meroblastic or discoidal cleavage, where yolk is not incorporated in the cells during cell division. (See also: egg, egg development, LarvalBase)
oeufs télolécithes
(french) Les poissons téléostéens sont différents de la plupart des invertébrés (qui ont une segmentation holoblaste, du vitellin incorporé dans les cellules en train de se diviser) ; ils ont des oeufs télolécithes, la masse du vitellin séparé de l'embryon en voie de développement. Ce type d'oeuf subit une segmentation méroblaste ou discoïdale où le vitellin n'est pas incorporé dans les cellules pendant la division de cellule. (See also: egg, egg development, LarvalBase)
