Sexual reproductive success is essential for the survival of all higher organisms. As the most prosperous and diverse group of land plants on earth, flowering plants evolved highly sophisticated fertilization mechanisms. To adapt to the terrestrial environment, a tubular structure pollen tube has been evolved to deliver the immobile sperm cells to the egg and central cell enclosed within the ovule. The pollen tube is generated from the vegetative cell of the pollen (male gametophyte), where two… Expand
Friend or foe: Signaling mechanisms during double fertilization in flowering seed plants.
TLDR
The analogy that many of the identified "reproductive signaling mechanisms" also act partly or fully in defense responses and/or cell death is discussed, with a focus on the model plants Arabidopsis thaliana and Zea mays. Expand
Internally Controlled Methods to Quantify Pollen Tube Growth and Penetration Defects in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
This chapter describes multiple assays that can be performed in series to assess mutant pollen defects in germination, pollen tube elongation rate, and pistil penetration, which can be easily quantified alongside a "near-wildtype" complemented counterpart. Expand
Central Cell in Flowering Plants: Specification, Signaling, and Evolution
TLDR
The current understanding on central cell, the biggest cell in the multicellular haploid female gametophyte (embryo sac), and its cell fate specification, intercellular communication, and evolution is summarized. Expand
Arabidopsis BUPS-ANX Receptor Complex Coordinates with RALF Peptides to Regulate Pollen Tube Integrity and Sperm Release
In flowering plants, the pollen tube is emerged from pollen grains and grows to deliver the immotile sperms to the egg, during the journey of which it communicates with several types of the femaleExpand
Insights into secrets along the pollen tube pathway in need to be discovered.
TLDR
The existing knowledge of the crucial biological processes involved in pollen-pistil interactions that give rise to the new seed are reviewed. Expand
Vegetative nuclear positioning is required for calcium and ROS signaling in Arabidopsis pollen tubes
TLDR
It is found that VN proximity to the pollen tube tip is required for both response to exogenous ROS, as well as internal nuclear Ca2+ fluctuations. Expand
Arabinogalactan proteins mediate intercellular crosstalk in the ovule of apple flowers
TLDR
AGP-rich glycoproteins mediate pollen–ovule interactions and cell patterning in the embryo sac of apple before and after fertilization and vanished from all these tissues following pollen tube passage, strongly suggesting a role in pollen-ovule interaction. Expand
Plasma membrane H+ -ATPases-mediated cytosolic proton gradient regulates pollen tube growth.
TLDR
It is found that proton forms a gradient from the pollen tube tip to the shank region, which is contributed by three members of Arabidopsis H+ -ATPases (AHAs), suggesting that these AHAs are essential for pollen tube growth, thus providing new insight into the regulation of polar growth. Expand
LINC-complex mediated positioning of the vegetative nucleus is involved in calcium and ROS signaling in Arabidopsis pollen tubes
TLDR
It is shown that wit12 and wifi are hyposensitive to exogenous H2O2, and that this hyposensitivity is correlated with decreased proximity of the VN to the pollen tube tip. Expand
Spatio-Temporal Distribution of Cell Wall Components in the Placentas, Ovules and Female Gametophytes of Utricularia during Pollination
TLDR
In both of the examined species, arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs) were observed in the placenta, ovule, and female gametophyte of both pollinated and unpollinated flowers, which means that the production is independent of pollination; however, the production of some AGPs was lower after fertilization.

The mechanism and key molecules involved in pollen tube guidance.
TLDR
Successful pollen tube guidance in the pistil requires not only nutritional and directional controls but also competency controls to make pollen tubes responsive to guidance cues, regulation to terminate growth once a pollen tube arrives at the target, and strategies to stop ovular attraction depending on the fertilization of female gametes. Expand
Arabidopsis pollen tube integrity and sperm release are regulated by RALF-mediated signaling
TLDR
It is proposed that RALF34 replaces RalF4 and RALf19 at the interface of pollen tube–female gametophyte contact, thereby deregulating BUPS-ANXUR signaling and in turn leading to pollen tube rupture and sperm release. Expand
The Central Cell Plays a Critical Role in Pollen Tube Guidance in Arabidopsis[W]
TLDR
expression of CCG in the central cell alone is sufficient to restore the normal pollen tube guidance phenotype, demonstrating that the centralcell plays a critical role in pollen tube Guidance. Expand
A floral transmitting tissue-specific glycoprotein attracts pollen tubes and stimulates their growth
TLDR
Pollen tubes elongate directionally in the extracellular matrix of pistil tissues to transport the male gametes from the apically located stigma to the basally located ovary for fertilization and TTS proteins stimulate pollen tube growth in vitro and attract pollen tubes grown in a semi-in vivo culture system. Expand
RALF4/19 peptides interact with LRX proteins to control pollen tube growth in Arabidopsis
TLDR
It is found that Arabidopsis RalF4 and RALF19 redundantly regulate pollen tube integrity and growth, and that their function depends on pollen-expressed proteins of the LEUCINE-RICH REPEAT EXTENSIN (LRX) family, which play a role in cell wall development but whose mode of action is not understood.

Gametophytic Pollen Tube Guidance: Attractant Peptides, Gametic Controls, and Receptors1[OPEN]
TLDR
Recent progress in the understanding of the mechanism of gametophytic pollen tube guidance is reviewed, including attraction by synergid cells, control of pollen tubes guidance by female gametes, and directional growth of the pollen tube by directional cue sensing. Expand
Tip-localized receptors control pollen tube growth and LURE sensing in Arabidopsis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that tip-localized pollen-specific receptor-like kinase 6 (PRK6) with an extracellular leucine-rich repeat domain is an essential receptor for sensing of the LURE1 attractant peptide in Arabidopsis thaliana under semi-in-vivo conditions, and is important for ovule targeting in the pistil.

Attraction of tip-growing pollen tubes by the female gametophyte.
TLDR
The molecular basis of pollen tube guidance, especially in Arabidopsis thaliana, is discussed by summarizing recent progress in various plant species by discussing attractant molecules and receptors for gametophytic pollen tubes guidance. Expand
Pollen Tube Growth and Guidance Is Regulated by POP2, an Arabidopsis Gene that Controls GABA Levels
TLDR
A role for gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) in pollen tube growth and guidance is described, and wild-type tubes exhibit normal growth and Guidance in pop2 pistils, perhaps by degrading excess GABA and sharpening the gradient leading to the micropyle. Expand
