We have compared the time course of leaf senescence in pea (Pisum sativum L. cv Messire) plants subjected to a mild water deficit to that of monocarpic senescence in leaves of three different ages in well-watered plants and to that of plants in which leaf senescence was delayed by flower excision. The mild water deficit (with photosynthesis rate maintained(More)
A polypeptide doublet (P18-P19, ca 22 kDa, pI 4.5) has been shown to accumulate in tobacco leaf plasma membrane in a development-dependent way, under constant environmental conditions. P18 and P19 were purified by 2D-PAGE and microsequenced. Microsequences revealed only small differences between the two polypeptides. A PCR-based cloning strategy identified(More)
Poly(A)-RNA was purified from Nicotiana tabacum cell suspension cultures grown in the presence of N(6)-benzyladenine (BA). Cells were incubated with concentrations of 0.4 micromolar BA, optimal for cell division (OPT) or 10 micromolar BA, a cytostatic concentration (OVD), or without cytokinin (CTL) as a control. After 55 hours, total RNA was extracted from(More)
The frequency of incorporation of the cytokinin N(6)-[p-(3)H]benzyladenine into major RNA species of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum cv W 38) cells steadily increased as a function of its concentration in the culture medium, up to a 10 micromolar cytostatic overdose. During a 55-hour incubation of cells with 0.4 micromolar benzyladenine (BA), which is the(More)
