Studies on the behavior of meiotic protoplasts

Abstract

Meiotic protoplasts obtained from lily microsporocytes in late prophase to telophase I were cultured in an enzyme solution which prevents formation of a cell wall around the protoplsts. The removal of the surface wall interfered with nuclear and cell division when the wall was removed prior to metaphase. The main effects were non-segregation of chromosomes… (More)
