Histochemical tests showed that the secretory materials in the glandular trichomes are mainly essential oils, lipophilic substances and polysaccharides, and these secretion modes are reported for the first time in the family Lamiaceae.
Flavonoid glycosides from Egyptian species of the tribe Asclepiadeae (Apocynaceae, subfamily Asclepiadoideae)
A morphological, karyological and chemical study of the Apteranthes (Caralluma) europaea complex
The Apteranthes europaea complex distributed from Morocco/southern Spain along the North African coast of the Mediterranean Sea up to Sinai, Negev and southern Jordan is studied with emphasis on stem and flower morphology by SEM, chromosome sizes and flavonoid compounds.
Seed coat diversity in some tribes of Cucurbitaceae: implications for taxonomy and species identification
Seed character analysis offered useful data for evaluating the taxonomy of Cucurbitaceae on both intrageneric and tribal levels, indicating that distinct lineages are present within the tribe Benincaseae, that this tribe is not monophyletic, and that the subtribe Benincasinae is highly polyphyletic.
Glandular trichomes of Ceratotheca triloba (Pedaliaceae): morphology, histochemistry and ultrastructure
The distribution, morphology, secretion mode, histochemistry and ultrastructure of the glandular trichomes of Ceratotheca triloba using light and electron microscopy are characterized and two secretion modes of long and short trichome are reported for the first time in the family Pedaliaceae.
Morphological investigation of glandular hairs on Drosera capensis leaves with an ultrastructural study of the sessile glands
The presence of a secretion from the two head cells of the sessile glands and the dark large vesicles inside them suggests a secretory function of Drosera capensis L. capensis, and numerous wall ingrowths are present in the outer tangential and radial cell walls of the heads of the Sessile gland, increasing the surface area to facilitate mucilage secretion.
Morphology, histochemistry, and ultrastructure of foliar mucilage-producing trichomes of Harpagophytum procumbens (Pedaliaceae)
The morphology, histochemistry, and ultrastructure of foliar mucilage-producing trichomes of Harpagophytum procumbens are investigated using a combination of light and electron microscopy. The leaves…
Characteristics of the proximal to distal regions of the petioles to identify 15 tree species of Papilionoideae-Fabaceae
Comparative studies on the structure of the vascular supply of stem-leaf transitional zone of the petioles were carried out in 15 papilionoid tree species, showing unusual petiole trace structure and the studied species of tribe Millettieae show the presence of secretory cavities lined by epithelial cells.
In vitro culture initiation of Cleome droserifolia glandular trichomes for potential biotechnological applications
The initiation of glandular hairs cultures of Cleome droserifolia was successfully achieved on Murashige and Skoog medium containing a combination of BA with 2, 4D and IAA in in vitro cultures, and will open the door for new biotechnological applications for the production of fine chemicals.

The induction of endophytic bacterium-induced salt tolerance in pea plants depends primarily on the effect ofendophytic bacteria on osmoregulation, the antioxidant capacity, and ion uptake adjustment by limiting the uptake of Na+ and, alternatively, increasing the accumulation of K+ in plant tissue.
