Development of Gonads

Can you name the Development of Gonads?

progenitors of germ cells
in ____ cells the chromosomes degrade
chromosomal fragmentation followed by elimination of part of the chromosome during mitosis
involved in transcription and translation inhibition, forces cells to become germ cells
germ plasm in C. elegans contains
blocks phosphorylation of RNA Pol II, prevents transcriptional activation in germline
functions of Drosophila PGCs
pole plasm components
encodes a nuclear envelope protein, blocks gene transcription, cirtical for specifying pole cells
is translated in pole plasm, blocks RNA Pol II phosphorylation, blocks transcription
acts as a receptor for Sdf1 secreted by developing gonad
PGCs follow a gradient of _____ toward the gonad
Primordial germ cells are specified through inductive interactions during
