Direct contact of the radiating perinuclear microtubules (MTs) with the nuclear envelope was visualized with an immunogold technique using specific monoclonal tubulin antibody. The possibility that these perinuclear MT arrays are involved in establishing and maintaining nuclear organization during the interphase of cycling cells in maize root meristems was tested using taxol, a MT-stabilizing agent. Taxol not only stabilized all MTs against the action of the MT-disrupters colchicine and… CONTINUE READING

Moreover , taxol prevented the stimulation , by colchicine and oryzalin , of the onset of the S phase in cells of the quiescent centre and proximal root meristem .
Taxol not only stabilized all MTs against the action of the MT - disrupters colchicine and oryzalin but also prevented these agents from their usual induction of nuclear enlargement and decondensation of nuclear chromatin .
