Sub-cellular distribution of nitrogen compounds inAzolla andAnabaena by ESI and EELS analysis

The sub-cellular localization of some nitrogen compounds within the leaf cavities ofAzolla filiculoides Lam. was obtained by means of electron spectroscopic imaging (ESI) and electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS). The analyses were performed on ultrathin unstained sections of differentAzolla leaf cavities which contain epidermal hairs,Anabaena azollae… (More)
