  author={Suhong Chen and Jing-ping Liao and Maoxin Luo and Bruce Kirchoff},
Potassium antimonite was used to locate calcium in the anthers of Torenia fournieri (Linderniaceae). Abundant calcium precipitates accumulate in the microsporocyte cytoplasm. After meiosis, calcium precipitates are abundant on the microspore wall, as well as the callosic wall of each tetraspore. A large number of calcium precipitates also occur on the outer membranes of the tapetal cells, and in the intercellular spaces of the endothecium and middle layer. The quantity of calcium precipitates… CONTINUE READING
