Expression of nuclear genes as affected by treatments acting on the plastids
In a preceding paper (Oelmüller and Mohr 1986, Planta 167, 106–113) it was shown that in the cotyledons of the mustard (Sinapis alba L.) seedling the integrity of the plastid is a necessaryExpand
Arabinogalactan proteins in maize coleoptiles: developmental relationship to cell death during xylem differentiation but not to extension growth.
The spatial and temporal expression of arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs) in the coleoptile of maize seedlings was investigated with monoclonal antibodies (MAC207, JIM13, JIM14) raised againstExpand
Structure and distribution of lignin in primary and secondary cell walls of maize coleoptiles analyzed by chemical and immunological probes
Lignin is an integral constituent of the primary cell walls of the dark-grown maize (Zea mays L.) coleoptile, a juvenile organ that is still in the developmental state of rapid cell extension.Expand
Reorientation of Microfibrils and Microtubules at the Outer Epidermal Wall of Maize Coleoptiles During Auxin‐Mediated Growth
Auxin-mediated elongation growth of isolated subapical coleoptile segments of maize (Zea mays L.) is controlled by the extensibility of the outer cell wall of the outer epidermis (Kutschera et al.,Expand
Unilateral reorientation of microtubules at the outer epidermal wall during photo- and gravitropic curvature of maize coleoptiles and sunflower hypocotyls
Auxin (indole-3-acetic acid) controls the orientation of cortical microtubes (MT) at the outer wall of the outer epidermis of growing maize coleoptiles (Bergfeld, R., Speth, V., Schopfer, P., 1988,Expand
Photooxidative destruction of chloroplasts and its consequences for cytosolic enzyme levels and plant development
Mustard (Sinapis alba L.) seedlings were grown in the presence of herbicides (Difunon, Norflurazon) which inhibit carotenoid synthesis without affecting development, in darkness or in continuousExpand
Inhibition of Golgi-apparatus function by brefeldin A in maize coleoptiles and its consequences on auxin-mediated growth, cell-wall extensibility and secretion of cell-wall proteins
Brefeldin A (BFA), a fungal metabolite causing dysfunction of the Golgi apparatus in plant and animal cells, was used to investigate the role of secretory processes at the plasma membrane inExpand
Cooperation of epidermis and inner tissues in auxin-mediated growth of maize coleoptiles
The function of the epidermis in auxinmediated elongation growth of maize (Zea mays L.) coleoptile segments was investigated. The following results were obtained: i) In the intact organ, there is aExpand
Regulatory Involvement of Plastids in the Development of Peroxisomal Enzymes in the Cotyledons of Mustard (Sinapis alba L.) Seedlings
Summary The developmental changes of marker enzymes of the glyoxysomal function [isocitrate lyase (ICL) and malate synthase (MS)] and the leaf-peroxisomal function [glycolate oxidase (GO) andExpand
Effect of inhibition of protein glycosylation on auxin-induced growth and the occurrence of osmiophilic particles in maize (Zea mays L.) coleoptiles
The dependence of auxin (IAA)-induced elongation growth on protein glycosylation was investigated in abraded maize (Zea mays L.) coleoptile segments, employing 2-deoxy-D-glucose (DOG) and tunicamycinExpand
