Heterodera glycines male seam cells proliferate less than females. a Lateral view fluorescent micrograph of DAPI-stained J3 male 7 days post-inoculation (DPI). Nuclei along the lateral side are produced during the J3 stage through seam cell division. b J4 males are highly coiled within the old J3 cuticle, making an examination of seam cells difficult. (C) DAPI-stained fluorescent micrograph of an adult male with bright fluorescence from the sperm nuclei (outlined in red), making it difficult to quantify epidermal nuclei. Scale bars, 10 µm
