Guidance in Vitro of the Pollen Tube to the Naked Embryo Sac of Torenia fournieri
It is convincingly demonstrate that pollen tubes are specifically attracted to the region of the filiform apparatus of living synergids in vitro, which is critical to the successful sexual reproduction of flowering plants.
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: duration of its cell cycle and phases at growth rates affected by temperature
The data presented here show that cell cycle duration in C. reinhardtii is a function of growth rate and is not controlled by a temperature independent endogenous timer or oscillator, including a circadian one.
Axillary Meristem Formation in Rice Requires the WUSCHEL Ortholog TILLERS ABSENT1[OPEN]
It is shown that rice (Oryza sativa) TILLERS ABSENT1 (TAB1; also known as Os WUS), an ortholog of Arabidopsis thaliana WUS, is required to initiate axillary meristem development and that the prophyll, the first leaf in the secondary axis, is formed from the premeristem zone and not from the axillaryMeristem.
Epifluorescent microscopic evidence for maternal inheritance of chloroplast DNA
Fluorescent microscopic evidence is presented that in C. reinhardii, about eight chloroplast nucleoids from the male parent disappear during the first 40–50 min after mating, while those from the female parent persist and finally fuse together to form one large chlorOPlast nucleoid.
Three-Dimensional Ultrastructural Study of Oil and Astaxanthin Accumulation during Encystment in the Green Alga Haematococcus pluvialis
Haematococcus pluvialis is a freshwater species of green algae and is well known for its accumulation of the strong antioxidant astaxanthin, which is used in aquaculture, various pharmaceuticals, and
