Effects of alpha-cyclodextrin on water transport, cell hydration and longevity

Photographs of Xenopus oocyte chambers of 6 a-CD treated oocytes with different swelling due to water permeation into the cells and rupture of oocyte due to high volume expansion by water uptake. Photos were taken at increasing time points of treatment. The control un-swollen small oocyte is on the right hand site of each photo.
