MICROSPORE-DERIVED EMBRYOS IN BRASSICA - THE SIGNIFICANCE OF DIVISION SYMMETRY IN POLLEN MITOSIS-I TO EMBRYOGENIC DEVELOPMENT

Abstract:

An attempt has been made to manipulate the cytological processes regulating the switch from gametophytic to sporophytic development induced by culturing the microspores of higher plants. Previous studies have indicated that sporophytic development, which leads to the formation of haploid embryos, normally follows the symmetrical division of the microspore rather than the asymmetric mitosis characteristic of normal development. To determine whether symmetry of division is a key factor in the d...
