    S Morisawa
    Biological Laboratory, St Marianna University, School of Medicine, Miyamae, Kawasaki, Japan
    Dev Growth Differ 41:611-8. 1999
    ..A hypothesis that hagfish might show transitional structures in gametes from protochordates to teleosts is suggested...
  2. ncbi request reprint Ultrastructural studies of late-stage spermatids and mature spermatozoa of the puffer fish, Takifugu niphobles (Tetraodontiformes) and the effects of osmolality on spermatozoan structure
    S Morisawa
    Biological Laboratory, St Marianna University, School of Medicine, Kawasaki, Japan
    Tissue Cell 33:78-85. 2001
    ..Spermatozoa of marine fish may fertilize the eggs when the osmolality surrounding the sperm, which changes due to the mixing of seminal plasma and seawater, reaches the correct level for the spermatozoa to obtain correct structure...

    Dev Growth Differ 44:337-44. 2002
    ..It is phylogenetically interesting that such phenomena occur in spermatozoa of hagfish, a primitive vertebrate positioning between invertebrates and high vertebrates...

    Sachiko Morisawa
    Department of Anatomy, St Marianna University, School of Medicine, Kawasaki, Japan
    Zoolog Sci 21:1079-84. 2004
    ..These observations suggest that the features and function of the acrosome of amphioxus, whose position is on the border between invertebrates and vertebrates, reflect their ecological adaptation and phylogenic position...

    Biol Bull 209:204-14. 2005
    ..A droplet of cytoplasm was eliminated after descending along the flagella. The features of spermiogenesis in hagfish, which lies between invertebrates and vertebrates, are compared with those of other animals...

    Dev Growth Differ 41:109-12. 1999
    ..The reaction bears resemblance to that of invertebrate spermatozoa rather than that of vertebrate spermatozoa. The result provides insights into the phylogenetical changes that have occurred in this sperm reaction...
