Clonal analysis of leaf development in cotton.

Abstract:

Clonal analysis has been used to describe the cellular parameters of leaf development in American Pima cotton (Gossypium barbadense). Sectors (clones) induced before leaf initiation indicate that the leaf primordium arises from ~100 cells on the flank of the shoot meristem. An analysis of sector frequency during the period of leaf expansion suggests that the rate of cell division is fairly uniform throughout the length of the leaf, but is lower at the margin of the lamina than in intercalary ...
