what is a Clevage Furrow and a Cytoplasmic bridge?
:?:
things might not be spelled correctly, but that's how my teacher (Quaderer) typed and printed them out..

cytoplasmic bridge (= plasmodesmata) Thin strand of cytoplasm linking cells as in higher plants, Volvox , between nurse cells and developing eggs, and between developing sperm cells. Unlike gap junctions, allows the transfer of large macromolecules.

The cleavage furrow is an actin rich "purse string" that draws tight to separate daughter cells to complete cytokinesis in cell division.

Good search, but not enough.
Cytoplasmic bridge does not only mean plasmodesmata . It is also a way of exchanging genetic materials.
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll

I am the Captain of my soul.
