In the highly vacuolated epidermis cells of leaf explants of Nautilocalyx we investigated whether inhibition of cytokinesis by 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile (DCB) could be caused by a suppression of the formation of phragmosome and band of microtubules (BMT), two structures which are probably involved in cytokinesis and in the determination of the plane of cell division. Interference contrast microscopy showed that DCB (116 μM) did not interfere with the formation of phragmosome and BMT in the… Expand
Regulation of the Plane of Cell Division in Vacuolated Cells I. The Function of Nuclear Positioning and Phragmosome Formation
TLDR
It is suggested that in vacuolated cells the cy toplasmic strands are important to position the nucleus and that a combination of cytoplasmaic strands, PS, and cortical division site is needed to locate a new cell wall at a predetermined place in the cell. Expand
Aluminium Effects on Microtubule Organization in Dividing Root-Tip Cells of Triticum turgidum. II. Cytokinetic Cells
TLDR
Findings combined with those derived from the study of the Al-effects on the mitotic spindle show that Mt cytoskeleton is a target site of Al toxicity in dividing cells. Expand
Investigations of the turnover of the putative Cellulose-synthesizing particle “rosettes” within the plasma membrane ofFunaria hygrometrica protonema cells
TLDR
The number of rosettes, however, was strongly reduced within 3 minutes exposure time and their distribution was nearly uniform then, while the tip to base gradient in distribution was maintained for a long time. Expand
An ultrastructural study of cell plate modifications induced by 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile in onion root meristems
TLDR
The results show that 2,6-dichlorobenzo-nitrile induces anomalous and/or incomplete cell plates, which might be caused by an altered function of Golgi apparatus. Expand
Disturbances in cytokinesis caused by inorganic lead
TLDR
It is concluded that phragmoplast microtubules are not necessary for vesicles to gather in the central part of a cell but that they are indispensable in the formation of the proper shape and orientation of the cell plate. Expand
Investigations of the turnover of the putative cellulose-synthesizing particle “rosettes” within the plasma membrane ofFunaria hygrometrica protonema cells
TLDR
The results provide further evidence that the rosettes are parts of the cellulose synthase complexes, and their existence clearly depends on protein synthesis and on the constitution of the plasma membrane, but not on cellulose crystallization. Expand
Dispersed lignin in tracheary elements treated with cellulose synthesis inhibitors provides evidence that molecules of the secondary cell wall mediate wall patterning
TLDR
The data suggest that normal patterned wall assembly in TEs occurs in a self-perpetuating cascade in which some molecules of the secondary cell wall mediate patterning of others, and the localization of lignin is ultimately dependent on the localized cellulose. Expand
Is the recovery of microtubule orientation in pea roots dependent on the cell wall?
TLDR
It was shown that treating roots with disruptors of microfibril synthesis or the disruption of Arg‐Gly‐Asp (RGD)‐mediated wall‐membrane links did not affect the orientation of recovering microtubule arrays, and cell wall stresses themselves appeared unnecessary for regeneration of transverse arrays.

Effects of 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile and Tinopal LPW on the structure of the cellulose synthesizing complexes ofVaucheria hamata
SummaryThe effects of 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile (DCB, a known inhibitor of cellulose synthesis) and Tinopal LPW (TPL, an agent which disrupts glucan crystallization) on the structure of celluloseExpand
Morphology ofrsw1, a cellulose-deficient mutant ofArabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is concluded that theRSW1 gene is important for cellulose synthesis in many parts of the plant and that reduced cellulose production suppresses organ expansion rather than organ initiation, causes radial swelling only in the root and hypocotyl, but makes the surfaces of many organs uneven.

Cell Division in Nautilocalyx Explants I. Phragmosome, Preprophase Band and Plane of Division
TLDR
Dedifferentiation and cell division in small explants of Nautilocalyx lynchii (Hook f.) Sprague are described and the phragmosome seemed to play an important part in guiding the cell plate to the narrow zone of the cell wall opposite which the band of microtubules had been present some hours earlier. Expand
Cell Division in Nautilocalyx Explants
TLDR
Phragmoplast and cell-plate growth were studied in living leaf-epidermis cells of Nautilocalyx lynchii and the mean duration of cytokinesis during tangential division in fusiform cambial cells of Fraxinus was 10.5 hours. Expand
The structure of sycamore callus cells during division in a partially synchronized suspension culture.
TLDR
Sycamore suspension callus cells have been partially synchronized to give a culture with a mitotic index of 15% and the appearance of crystal-containing bodies and plastids containing phytoferritin is described. Expand
THE GOLGI APPARATUS AND CELL PLATE FORMATION—A POSTULATE
It has long been clear that the cell plate formed during cytokinesis in most plant cells results from coalescence of small vesicles. It has been suggested that the origin of these vesicles is theExpand

TLDR
The results indicated that, over the initial period of culture, DB largely inhibited cellulose production at the cell surface, but did not inhibit DNA synthesis or protein accumulation by the protoplasts. Expand

(1→3)-β-D-Glucan (callose) is a probable intermediate in biosynthesis of cellulose of cotton fibres
TLDR
Using intact cotton fibres, it is shown by pulse-chase experiments that callose has a high turnover and is likely to be an intermediate in cellulose biosynthesis at the stage of secondary wall formation. Expand
Formation and development of the cell plate
TLDR
The cell plate, which separates dividing plant cells in the course of mitosis and subsequently serves as a precursor of the cell wall, originates from Golgi vesicles, indicating that Golgi membranes and cell membranes are ontogenetically interrelated. Expand
