A row of sporogenous cells derived from archesporial cells produced a large number of microspore mother cells after several mitotic divisions (Fig.
Furthermore periclinal divisions of sporogenous cells resulted in the formation of pollen mother cells in S.striata.
Cytological observation of CMS-D8 also suggested that sterility resulted from sporophytic dysfunction in that degeneration of sporogenous tissues occurred before meiosis (Black, 1997).
In all 3 yr of this study, plants containing sporogenous tissue were observed only during November through April [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5A, B OMITTED].
PMCs were generated from primary sporogenous cells simultaneously with the development of microsporangium wall.
One hypothesis is that the tapetum has the vestigial capacity to polymerize sporopollenin because it shares a phylogenetically identical origin with the sporogenous tissue (Hesse, 1986).
Results showed that citric acid had an inhibitory effect on sporogenous bacteria.
5-8; 13-15; 20; 22-24) plants displayed all of the stages of microsporogenesis and microgametogenesis, from sporogenous mass stage (premeiosis) to engorged pollen stage near anthesis.
Archesporium produces a parietal cell and a primary sporogenous cell.
Within the anther, male sporogenous cells differentiate and undergo meiosis to produce microspores, which give rise to pollen grains, whereas other cell types contribute to pollen maturation, protection, or dispersion [1].
All of these cells were initially sporogenous. That is, chromosome-reduction initially occurred in every cell of the intercalated diploid generation.
They are divided periclinally, cause to formation of inner sporogenous cells and outer parietal cells.
