The use of synchronized populations of proliferative cells has been. advantageous for the investigation of events of the cell cycle (4, 5, 15) . Most investigations, however, have been carried out with procaryotic and eucaryotic single cells because dependable techniques for synchronization of cells in tissues were virtually unknown . It is therefore desirable, if not necessary, to develop procedures at the tissue level if the mitotic cycle is to be analyzed under conditions where metaphytic as… Expand
Cell Cycle Analysis: B. Control and Analysis of the Mitotic Cycle in Cultured Plant Root Meristems11Research carried out at Brookhaven National Laboratory under the auspices of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission.
TLDR
This chapter examines the control and analysis of the mitotic cycle in the cultured plant root meristems and the results obtained reflect the results of cell reproduction and differentiation, which reflect the expressions of genetic factors. Expand
Plant tissue culture and the cell cycle
TLDR
A number of recent observations and hypotheses involving asynchronous cell populations indicate that the transition probability model of cell proliferation developed with animal cells may also be applicable to higher plant cells. Expand
Mitotic Cycle Regulation in the Meristem of Cultured Roots: The Principal Control Point Hypothesis
TLDR
The root meristem has been the vehicle for much research in cell population kinetics and since the first experiments, much information has been gathered about the cell division cycle in plants. Expand
Metabolic events in synchronised cell cultures of Acer pseudoplatanus L.
TLDR
Cell division was synchronised in 4-litre batch cultures of Acer pseudoplatanus L. by starvation and regrowth; the final rate being twice that observed initially. Expand
THE COMPARATIVE CELL CYCLE AND METABOLIC EFFECTS OF CHEMICAL TREATMENTS ON ROOT TIP MERISTEMS. I. IOXYNIL
TLDR
Observations indicated that at 1076M concentration ioxynil acts as a preprophase inhibitor, that is, it does not act directly on the mitotic apparatus but does affect processes on which mitosis depends. Expand
Treatment of Soybean Cells with Cell Wall Degrading Enzymes Inhibits Nuclear Division but not DNA Synthesis
TLDR
It was revealed that longer enzyme treatment of protoplasts resulted in an earlier and higher rate of cell division for cultured protoplast, and similar trends were observed for the appearance of preprophase bands of microtubules. Expand
The effects of different thymidine concentrations on DNA replication in pea-root cells synchronized by a protracted 5-fluorodeoxyuridine treatment.
TLDR
Analysis of DNA replication and nascent replicon maturation in 5-fluorodeoxyuridine (FUdR)-synchronized cells of Pisum sativum led to postulate that in FUdR-synchronization cells the rates of chain elongation, cell progression through the S phase and nascent Replicon m maturity are controlled by thymidine availability. Expand
DNA Replication and the Cell Cycle
The replication of the genetic material, DNA, and its subsequent distribution to two daughter cells are perhaps the most fundamental processes carried out by living organisms, ensuring that each cellExpand
Heterogeneity of binucleate cells selected by inhibition of cytokinesis with methyl-3 hydroxy-6 (1H, 3H) quinazoline dione 2–4 (MHQD) in garlic root meristems
TLDR
DNA synthesis in MHQD binucleate cells was demonstrated by a labeling index analysis after continuous or pulse tritiated thymidine ( 3 H)-TdR incorporation and Feulgen microspectrophotometric determinations of relative DNA content suggested that DNA synthesis is initiated asynchronously while some bin nucleate cells stop temporarily or permanently in G 1. Expand
Nascent replicons are synchronously joined at the end of S phase or during G2 phase in peas.
TLDR
The combined use of a pulse-chase labeling protocol, single-cell autoradiography, cytophotometry, and velocity sedimentation in alkaline sucrose gradients showed that, unlike low molecular weight DNA, which is ligated soon after replication starts, the joining of nascent replicon-size DNA is delayed until G2.

CONTROL OF CELL PROGRESSION THROUGH THE MITOTIC CYCLE BY CARBOHYDRATE PROVISION I. Regulation of Cell Division in Excised Plant Tissue
TLDR
The results indicated that the number of G1 cells induced to enter S increased directly with the spurt duration and that cells could be positioned and retained in the S and/or G2 periods by varying the duration of thespurt. Expand
CELL POPULATION KINETICS OF EXCISED ROOTS OF PISUM SATIVUM
TLDR
The results indicate that the process of excision causes a drop in the frequency of mitotic figures when performed either at the beginning of the culture period or after 100 hours in culture. Expand

TLDR
This paper will be concerned largely with some of the major questions which consideration of these two models inevitably raises and set up a general model which at least has value as a basis for experimentation. Expand
Studies on in vitro lymphocyte proliferation in cultures synchronized by the inhibition of DNA synthesis. I. Variability of S plus G2 periods of first generation cells.
TLDR
It was concluded, that the duration of S plus G2 does not depend upon number of generations in vitro, and indirect evidence was obtained, indicating that PHA-stimulated lymphocytes may enter the first in vitro DNA synthesis period after more than 72 h in culture. Expand

THE ESTIMATION OF NUCLEIC ACIDS IN SOME ALGAE AND HIGHER PLANTS
TLDR
Several current methods for the extraction and estimation of nucleic acids in biological materials were applied to Euglena and other plants and, using a modification of the Ogur–Rosen initial extraction method, the acid-soluble phosphates were quantitatively extracted without loss of RNA. Expand

TLDR
These and other studies suggest that in the replication of native DNA the new strands are not covalently linked to the primer and that a “multiple hairpin” or “pleated” structure may develop which recovers considerable helicity following denaturing treatments. Expand
Functionality of newly synthesized DNA as related to RNA synthesis during mitotic cycle in Physarum polycephalum.
TLDR
The results suggest that at least part of the newly synthesized DNA becomes immediately functional in the synthesis of RNA in the synchronous surface cultures of Physarum polycephalum. Expand
