Dividing epithelial cells demonstrate a surprisingly dynamic relationship with the tissue layer. This time course shows a new cell, born without an obvious connection to the basement membrane (bottom of the tissue), reintegrating into the Drosophila follicular epithelium. The other product of division is not seen in this plane of focus.
