Nitrous oxide gas (N2O) can be used to produce polyploid plants, but the mechanism of action is unknown. The actin and microtubule cytoskeleton was observed in N2O-treated microsporocytes of Lilium spp ‘Asiatic hybrid lilies’ using fluorescence microscopy after staining with DAPI, FITC-conjugated tubulin antibody, and phalloidin-conjugated Alexa Fluor 546. Additionally, microsporocytes of L. longiflorum were observed with acetocarmine staining following N2O treatment. A typical metaphase I… CONTINUE READING
