Several ultrastructural changes occur during dehydration and subsequent rehydration of Arabidopsis thaliana pollen. The cytoplasmic channels, present in the outer part of the intine of the mature, dehydrating pollen grain, degenerate and develop into electron-dense inclusions. At the same time a large quantity of electron-dense material is deposited in the… CONTINUE READING
