Treatment of tobacco BY-2 cells with 20 microM brefeldin A (BFA), which causes disassembly of the Golgi apparatus (Yasuhara et al. 1995), completely inhibited the formation of the cell plate when the treatment was started before the chromosomes had begun to to condense. In cells in which cell-plate formation was inhibited by BFA, the centrifugal development of the phragmoplast was also inhibited. In such cells, the depolymerization of microtubules in the central region of the phragmoplast did… CONTINUE READING
