The present study provides the first quantitative analysis on the distribution of organelles in pollen tubes ofNicotiana tabacum L. Organelles were studied on living pollen tubes by means of fluorescence confocal laser scanning microscopy and on cryo-fixed, freeze-substituted and serially sectioned material by electron microscopy. In the tip a 300 nm to 400(More)
The organization ofPinus sylvestris pollen tubes during growth was studied by video microscopy of living cells and by electron microscopy after freeze-fixation and freeze-substitution (FF-FS). Pollen germinated and the tubes grew slowly for a total period of about 7 days. Some of the grains formed two tubes, while 10–50% of the tubes ramified. These(More)
