In this study, cytochemical staining methods were used to follow the cytochemical modifications of microspore cytoplasm and sporoderm in Campsis radicans (L.) Seem. from tetrad stage to mature pollen. Flower buds were collected at different stages of development, and the anthers were fixed and embedded in Araldite. To make cytochemical observations under(More)
In this study, polysaccharide and RNA contents of anthers were investigated on different phases of sporogenesis by using light microscopy techniques from histological and cytological point of view in Leucojum aestivum. Paraffin and semi-thin sections of anthers were stained with toluidine blue and PAS. Anthers were tetrasporangiate. The wall of the anther(More)
In this study, ultrastructures of anther wall and sporogenous tissue of Leucojum aestivum were investigated during different developmental stages. Cytomictic channels were seen between pollen mother cells during prophase I. Polar distribution was described in the organelle content of pollen mother cells and microspores in early phases of microsporogenesis(More)
In this study, distribution of polysaccharides, lipids, and proteins in the developing anthers of Campsis radicans (L.) Seem. was examined from sporogenous cell stage to mature pollen, using cytochemical methods. To detect the distribution and dynamic changes of insoluble polysaccharides, lipid bodies, and proteins in the anthers through progressive(More)
In this study, seed germination percentages, effects on phases of mitosis and α-amylase enzyme activity of lentil seeds treated with four different concentrations (0.25, 0.5, 1 and 1.5%) of Fusilade (Fluazifop-p-butyl) were determined. Median EC (effective concentration) values were calculated according to seed germination percentages after treatment for 72(More)
In this study, chromosome number and ploidy levels of Ipheion uniflorum cv. "Wisley Blue" (spring starflower) were determined. In meristematic root tip cells, chromosome number was found as 2n = 12 and 4n = 24. The ratios of diploid and tetraploid cells were found as 80.74% and 19.26%, respectively. In differentiated root tissues and mature leaf tissues(More)
In this study, gynoeceum, development of megasporangium, megasporogenesis, megagametogenesis and female gametophyte of Leucojum aestivum were examined cytologically and histologically. Ovules of L. aestivum are of anatropous, bitegmic and crassinucellate type. Inner integument forms the micropyle. Archesporial cell develops directly into a megasporocyte.(More)
In this study anther wall, meiosis, sporogenesis and the development of female gametophytes of Bellevalia edirnensis were examined cytologically and histologically. The young anther wall consists of an epidermis, a single layered fibrous endothecium, 1-2 middle layers which disappear early, and a single-layered tapetum. In the glandular tapetum; normal(More)
In this study ultrastructural differences between endothelial cells of different location in Penstemon gentianoides have been examined with electron microscope at mature embryo sac phase. Embryo sac is of the Polygonum type and surrounded by endothelium except the micropylar region. The cuticle is located primarily around the chalazal three-fourths of the(More)
In this study, the effects of benomyl, a systemic fungicide were investigated in the mitotic cell division in onion (Allium cepa) root tip cells during germination. For this aim, different concentrations (1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 mM) of benomyl solutions were used. All the concentrations used caused several abnormalities in mitotic cell divisions and the mitotic(More)
