Mechanical Stress Elicits Nitric Oxide Formation and DNA Fragmentation in Arabidopsis thaliana
The effect of mechanical stress (centrifugation) on the induction of nitric oxide (NO) formation and DNA fragmentation was investigated in leaf cells of Arabidopsis thaliana. Centrifuged andExpand

Evolution of asexual reproduction in leaves of the genus Kalanchoë
Plant somatic cells have the remarkable ability to regenerate an entire organism. Many species in the genus Kalanchoë, known as “mother of thousands,” develop plantlets on the leaf margins. Using keyExpand

A nitric oxide burst precedes apoptosis in angiosperm and gymnosperm callus cells and foliar tissues.
Leaves and callus of Kalanchoë daigremontiana and Taxus brevifolia were used to investigate nitric oxide-induced apoptosis in plant cells. The effect of nitric oxide (NO) was studied by using a NOExpand

Effect of different gravity environments on DNA fragmentation and cell death in Kalanchoe leaves.
Different gravity environments have been shown to significantly affect leaf-plantlet formation and asexual reproduction in Kalanchoë daigremontiana Ham. and Perr. In the present work, we investigatedExpand

Induction of microspore embryogenesis in Camellia japonica cv. Elegans
Three methods of microspore culture were tested for the induction of microspore embryogenesis in Camellia japonica L. cv. Elegans. Culture was performed on 17 different media consisting of MurashigeExpand

A scanning electron microscopy and X-ray microanalysis study during induction of morphogenesis in Camellia japonica L.
Abstract A scanning electron microscopy (SEM) study during the induction of direct and indirect morphogenesis (root and embryo formation) from leaves of Camellia japonica L. showed that the inductionExpand
