Differentiation and redifferentiation of a transfer cell: Development of septal nectaries ofAloe andGasteria


The epithelial cells of the septal nectaries ofGasteria andAloe have a “second wall layer” consisting of numerous irregular wall protuberances along the outer wall. They, thus, are typical transfer cells. The wall protuberances develop a short time before the nectar secretion begins. At this time and during the secretory phase the amount of microtubules is… (More)
