The synergids and other cells of mature, unpollinated pearl millet ovaries were investigated using: (1) freeze-substitution fixation in conjunction with scanning electron microscope observations and energy-dispersive X-ray microanalysis to localize total calcium (Ca) and other elements, and (2) antimonate precipitation to selectively localize loosely sequestered, exchangeable calcium (Ca++). In freeze-fixed ovaries, the synergid cells, ovary wall, nucellus, and other regions of the ovary… CONTINUE READING
