Primary roots of two species of Sonoran Desert Cactaceae, Stenocereus gummosus and Pachycereus pringlei, have a determinate pattern of growth: meristematic cells divide only for a limited time and then differentiate. Detecting DNA fragmentation by terminal deoxynucleotide transferase-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling (TUNEL), we have shown that programmed… CONTINUE READING
