It is currently accepted that 'stress' triggers induction of microspore embryogenesis, and for Brassica napus L. cv. Topas it is heat-shock. It has been postulated that the heat-shock proteins (HSPs) generated during heat stress have a central role in the induction mechanism. To test this hypothesis we developed a microspore induction procedure, using… CONTINUE READING
