A multidisciplinary approach (freeze-fracture, nuclear magnetic resonance, differential scanning calorimetry, isoelectric focusing and fluorochromatic reaction test) has been used to follow the behaviour of Zea mays pollen during dehydration - and to estimate its quality. At anthesis, the water content of maize pollen is 57–58% and the vegetative plasma membrane is continous and well structured with a very low density of intramembraneous particles on the extraplasmic fracture face. Maize pollen… CONTINUE READING
