Precise directional control of pollen-tube growth by pistil tissue is critical for successful fertilization of flowering plants [1-3]. Ovular attractant peptides, which are secreted from two synergid cells on the side of the egg cell, have been identified [4-6]. Emerging evidence suggests that the ovular directional cue is not sufficient for successful(More)
Protein glycosylation in microsporidia, a fungi-related group comprising exclusively obligate intracellular parasitic species, is still poorly documented. Here, we have studied glycoconjugate localization and glycan structures in spores of Encephalitozoon cuniculi and Antonospora locustae, two distantly related microsporidians invading mammalian and insect(More)
