Activation of latent origins of DNA replication in florally determined shoot meristems of long-day and short-day plants: Silene coeli-rosa and Pharbitis nil


Replicon spacing was measured during the S-phase of the cell cycle in shoot meristems of Silene coeli-rosa L., a long-day (LD) plant, and Pharbitis nil Chois, a short-day (SD) plant to examine the hypothesis that activation of latent origins of DNA replication is a feature of floral determination. Silene coeli-rosa was germinated and grown in SD for 28 d… (More)
