Early development of the flower primordium has been studied in Arabidopsis thaliana clavata3-2 (clv3-2) plants with the aid of sequential in vivo replicas and longitudinal microtome sections. Sequential replicas show that, although there is no regular phyllotaxis in the clv3-2 inflorescence shoot apex, the sites of new primordium formation are, to a large(More)
In the process of morphogenesis primordia of lateral organs, like leaves or flowers, are formed at the shoot apical meristem (SAM). In order to maintain the ability to organ formation, the SAM itself has to be self-perpetuated, i.e. its general shape and size have to be maintained, despite the fact that portions of SAM periphery are continuously used up for(More)
Astrocytic glycogen metabolism sustains neuronal activity but its impact on basal glutamatergic synaptic transmission is not clear. To address this issue, we have compared the effect of glycogen breakdown inhibition on miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents (mEPSCs) in rat hippocampal pure neuronal culture (PNC) and in astrocyte-neuronal co-cultures(More)
Differentiation in the mouse embryo begins at the 8-cell stage when the blastomeres spread against each other in a process called compaction. The spreading behavior of blastomeres on lectin-coated coverslips mimics that of blastomeres in the embryo, and we have utilized this model system to obtain an en face view of the membrane skeleton in the spreading(More)
