Cadmium uptake, tissue localization and structural changes induced at cellular level are essential to understand Cd tolerance in plants. In this study we have exposed plants of Pteris vittata to different concentrations of CdCl2 (0, 30, 60, 100 μM) to evaluate the tolerance of the fern to cadmium. Cadmium content determination and its histochemical(More)
In this study, we investigated cytohistochemistry, cycle progression, and relative DNA content of the female gametophyte cells of Helleborus bocconei Ten. before and after fertilization process. The early stages of embryo development were also investigated. H. bocconei possesses a monosporic seven-celled/eight-nucleate Polygonum type female gametophyte,(More)
The present study reports evidence of the pleiotropic effects caused by the insertion of the rat glucocorticoid receptor (GR) into the genome of Nicotiana langsdorffii. Transgenic N. langsdorffii-GR plants and the wild-type genotypes were analysed for their phenotypic and physiological characteristics. The integration of the GR gene affected flowering,(More)
