Nuclear dynamics in Arabidopsis thaliana.
The nucleus is a definitive feature of eukaryotic cells, comprising twin bilamellar membranes, the inner and outer nuclear membranes, which separate the nucleoplasmic and cytoplasmic compartments.Expand

Silencing of the Nuclear RPS10 Gene Encoding Mitochondrial Ribosomal Protein Alters Translation in Arabidopsis Mitochondria[W]
This work addresses both mitochondrial translation regulation and coordination of expression of nuclear and mitochondrial genomes in land plants. When the status of mitoribosomes is perturbed, theExpand

Nuclear DNA content variation and species relationships in the genus Lupinus (Fabaceae).
The 2C nuclear DNA content has been estimated by flow cytometry in 18 species and botanical forms of the genus Lupinus (family Fabaceae), using propidium iodide as a fluorescent dye. They representedExpand

Flow cytometric analysis of nuclear DNA content in cloudberry (Rubus chamaemorus L.) in vitro cultures
Abstract Flow cytometry was used to analyze the DNA content of nuclei isolated from four different shoot cultures growing in vitro, and from callus of Rubus chamaemorus . The protocol for isolationExpand

Genome size in Humulus lupulus L. and H. japonicus Siebold and Zucc. (Cannabaceae)
We analysed chromosome lengths, karyotype structure, and nuclear DNA content (flow cytometry) in diploid (2n=20) and triploid (2n=30) European H. lupulus var. lupulus , American H. lupulus var.Expand

Germination of Arabidopsis thaliana seeds is not completed as a result of elongation of the radicle but of the adjacent transition zone and lower hypocotyl.
The completion of germination of seeds of Arabidopsis thaliana is marked by the appearance of the radicle through the surrounding endosperm and testa. Using confocal microscopy and green fluorescentExpand

Myrigalone A inhibits Lepidium sativum seed germination by interference with gibberellin metabolism and apoplastic superoxide production required for embryo extension growth and endosperm rupture.
Myrica gale L. (sweet gale) fruit leachate contains myrigalone A (MyA), a rare C-methylated dihydrochalcone and putative allelochemical, which is known to be a phytotoxin impeding seedling growth. WeExpand

Measuring genome size of desert plants using dry seeds.
Use of seeds instead of leaves for the flow cytometric measurement of DNA content is of particular interest to botanists and plant ecologists, since it allows estimation of genome sizes for species...

Micropropagation of Viola uliginosa (Violaceae) for endangered species conservation and for somaclonal variation-enhanced cyclotide biosynthesis
Viola uliginosa Besser is a European violet having its main distribution range in the Baltic Sea region. Today it is considered endangered and threatened. Species of Violaceae from different generaExpand

Male gametophyte development and two different DNA classes of pollen grains in Rumex acetosa L., a plant with an XX/XY1Y2 sex chromosome system and a female-biased sex ratio
Female-biased sex ratio is an interesting phenomenon observed in Rumex acetosa, a dioecious plant with an XX/XY1Y2 sex chromosome system. Previous authors have suggested that the biased sex ratio inExpand
