Pollen tubes show a rapid and dramatically polarized growth in which the actin cytoskeleton appears to play a central role. In order to understand the regulation of actin we characterized its associated protein, profilin, in pollen tubes of Lilium longiflorum. By using purified polyclonal antibodies prepared against bean root profilin [Vidali et al., 1995: Plant Physiol. 108:115-123] we detected in pollen grains and tubes two profilin polypeptides with molecular masses of 14.4 and 13.4 KDa, and… CONTINUE READING
