Relationships between structure and motility ofAlbizzia motor organs: Changes in ultrastructure of cortical cells during dark-induced closure


Paired leaflets ofAlbizzia julibrissin spread apart (open) in the daytime and fold together (close) at night. We examined the structure of cells in open and closedAlbizzia motor organs (pulvini) to identify reversible changes in structure associated with motility. Pulvini were fixed in glutaraldehyde and stained using conventional methods. The pulvinus has… (More)
