Dynamics of early development in green algaeVolvox embryos begin life inside out and have to turn their spherical cell monolayer outside in to achieve their adult configuration. During the later stages of type B inversion of Volvox globator, denting in the cell monolayer is observed prior to closure of the embryo. Cells were visualized by staining the cytoskeleton, F-actin, with phalloidin-TRITC (red), and nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue).
