Dear Editor, As an essential element for pollen tube tip growth, actin cytoskeleton has been a focus for decades. Recently, both rapid-freeze and room-temperature fixation have revealed the presence of a subapical cortical F-actin (actin fringe) as a consistent feature of lily pollen tubes (Lovy-Wheeler et al., 2005). The actin fringe consists of a palisade of short longitudinally oriented actin cables that start about 1–5 μm behind the extreme apex and extend basally for an additional 5–10 μm… CONTINUE READING
