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)
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)
