 We proposed that pollination in lily is a case of cell adhesion and cell movement, but experimental evidence for the adhesion event is lacking. In this study, we developed an artificial extracellular matrix that mimics the in vivo lily stylar transmitting tract. This artificial matrix was created by applying the transmitting tract exudate extracted from lily styles onto a nitrocellulose membrane. When in vitro-grown pollen tubes were applied to the matrix, they adhered by their tips to the… CONTINUE READING
