12 RL = Radicle length RFW = Fresh weight of the radicle RDW = Dry weight of the radicle CL = Cotyledon length CFW = Fresh weight of cotyledon CDW = cotyledon HL = Hypocotyl length HFW = Fresh weight hypocotyl, HDW = Dry weight of hypocotyls SeL = Seedling Length SeFW = Seedling Fresh weight SeDW = Seedling Dry weight AMI = Active mitotic index
The germination rate and radicle length depended strongly on the utilized L/S ratio in preparing the extracts (Fig.
Mean rate of seed germination (R) was calculated according to Ellis and Roberts [5], Also measurement cell membrane permeability and malondialdehyde content was calculated according to Valentoric [23], For determination of plumule and radicle dry weight these organs were dried in an air forced oven at 70[degrees]C for 24 hrs.
Even after they are transferred to optimal temperatures, there is a delay in radicle appearance in comparison with the seeds that were wetted from the beginning of exposure to optimal temperatures.
Seed priming is a controlled hydration treatment at low water potential that allows pre-germinative metabolism to proceed, but prevents radicle emergence [4].
Peanut seeds lose viability due to damage to the radicle tip, which is located under the seed coat and protrudes outside the cotyledons (Roberts, 1972).
Seed priming is a pre-germination seed treatment in which seeds are held at water potential that allows imbibition, but prevents radicle extension [3].
The radicle is approximately half the length of the cotyledons.
This reflexive pause in the progress along the road in It Happened One Night forces the viewer to see an ostensible moment in the achievement of love as a very literally constructed or' "put up" sign, the radicle of the motion picture, a moment that refers not to love but to the constructed nature of the journey toward love.
