Roles for nitric oxide (NO) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) during pollen-tube growth have been well established in angiosperms, but there remains lack of information regarding their potential signalling roles in pollen tubes in gymnosperms. Here, the pollen-tube elongation of Arizona cypress (Cupressus arizonica Greene) was investigated. Nitric oxide,(More)
Sexual reproduction in higher plants requires the development of a special cell protrusion, the so-called pollen tube, which is generated by the male gametophyte. Like other plant cells, the pollen tube contains a conspicuous cytoskeletal apparatus that regulates and promotes most of its biological functions, the most important of which is the transport of(More)
