They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

Separation of shoot and floral identity in Arabidopsis. (1/1627)

The overall morphology of an Arabidopsis plant depends on the behaviour of its meristems. Meristems derived from the shoot apex can develop into either shoots or flowers. The distinction between these alternative fates requires separation between the function of floral meristem identity genes and the function of an antagonistic group of genes, which includes TERMINAL FLOWER 1. We show that the activities of these genes are restricted to separate domains of the shoot apex by different mechanisms. Meristem identity genes, such as LEAFY, APETALA 1 and CAULIFLOWER, prevent TERMINAL FLOWER 1 transcription in floral meristems on the apex periphery. TERMINAL FLOWER 1, in turn, can inhibit the activity of meristem identity genes at the centre of the shoot apex in two ways; first by delaying their upregulation, and second, by preventing the meristem from responding to LEAFY or APETALA 1. We suggest that the wild-type pattern of TERMINAL FLOWER 1 and floral meristem identity gene expression depends on the relative timing of their upregulation.  (+info)

Shoot apical meristem and cotyledon formation during Arabidopsis embryogenesis: interaction among the CUP-SHAPED COTYLEDON and SHOOT MERISTEMLESS genes. (2/1627)

The shoot apical meristem and cotyledons of higher plants are established during embryogenesis in the apex. Redundant CUP-SHAPED COTYLEDON 1 (CUC1) and CUC2 as well as SHOOT MERISTEMLESS (STM) of Arabidopsis are required for shoot apical meristem formation and cotyledon separation. To elucidate how the apical region of the embryo is established, we investigated genetic interactions among CUC1, CUC2 and STM, as well as the expression patterns of CUC2 and STM mRNA. Expression of these genes marked the incipient shoot apical meristem as well as the boundaries of cotyledon primordia, consistent with their roles for shoot apical meristem formation and cotyledon separation. Genetic and expression analyses indicate that CUC1 and CUC2 are redundantly required for expression of STM to form the shoot apical meristem, and that STM is required for proper spatial expression of CUC2 to separate cotyledons. A model for pattern formation in the apical region of the Arabidopsis embryo is presented.  (+info)

Signaling of cell fate decisions by CLAVATA3 in Arabidopsis shoot meristems. (3/1627)

In higher plants, organogenesis occurs continuously from self-renewing apical meristems. Arabidopsis thaliana plants with loss-of-function mutations in the CLAVATA (CLV1, 2, and 3) genes have enlarged meristems and generate extra floral organs. Genetic analysis indicates that CLV1, which encodes a receptor kinase, acts with CLV3 to control the balance between meristem cell proliferation and differentiation. CLV3 encodes a small, predicted extracellular protein. CLV3 acts nonautonomously in meristems and is expressed at the meristem surface overlying the CLV1 domain. These proteins may act as a ligand-receptor pair in a signal transduction pathway, coordinating growth between adjacent meristematic regions.  (+info)

Replication in the phloem is not necessary for efficient vascular transport of tobacco mosaic tobamovirus. (4/1627)

Plant viruses move systemically from one leaf to another via phloem. However, the viral functions needed for systemic movement are not fully elucidated. An experimental system was designed to study the effects of low temperature on the vascular transport of the tobacco mosaic tobamovirus (TMV). Vascular transport of TMV from lower inoculated leaves to upper non-inoculated leaves via a stem segment kept at low temperature (4 degrees C) was not affected. On the other hand, several experiments were performed on tobacco leaves to demonstrate that virus replication did not occur at the same temperature. The data suggest that replication of TMV in the phloem of wild-type tobacco plants is not necessary for the vascular transport of TMV, and that the virus moves with photoassimilates as suggested previously.  (+info)

Heterologous expression of Arabidopsis phytochrome B in transgenic potato influences photosynthetic performance and tuber development. (5/1627)

Transgenic potato (Solanum tuberosum) plants expressing Arabidopsis phytochrome B were characterized morphologically and physiologically under white light in a greenhouse to explore their potential for improved photosynthesis and higher tuber yields. As expected, overexpression of functional phytochrome B caused pleiotropic effects such as semidwarfism, decreased apical dominance, a higher number of smaller but thicker leaves, and increased pigmentation. Because of increased numbers of chloroplasts in elongated palisade cells, photosynthesis per leaf area and in each individual plant increased. In addition, photosynthesis was less sensitive to photoinactivation under prolonged light stress. The beginning of senescence was not delayed, but deceleration of chlorophyll degradation extended the lifetime of photosynthetically active plants. Both the higher photosynthetic performance and the longer lifespan of the transgenic plants allowed greater biomass production, resulting in extended underground organs with increased tuber yields.  (+info)

The MADS-domain protein AGAMOUS-like 15 accumulates in embryonic tissues with diverse origins. (6/1627)

AGL15 (AGAMOUS-like 15), a member of the MADS-domain family of regulatory factors, accumulates preferentially in the organs and tissues derived from double fertilization in flowering plants (i.e. the embryo, suspensor, and endosperm). The developmental role of AGL15 is still undefined. If it is involved in embryogenesis rather than some other aspect of seed biology, then AGL15 protein should accumulate whenever development proceeds in the embryonic mode, regardless of the origin of those embryos or their developmental context. To test this, we used AGL15-specific antibodies to analyze apomictic embryogenesis in dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), microspore embryogenesis in oilseed rape (Brassica napus), and somatic embryogenesis in alfalfa (Medicago sativa). In every case, AGL15 accumulated to relatively high levels in the nuclei of the embryos. AGL15 also accumulated in cotyledon-like organs produced by the xtc2 (extra cotyledon2) mutant of Arabidopsis and during precocious germination in oilseed rape. Furthermore, the subcellular localization of AGL15 appeared to be developmentally regulated in all embryogenic situations. AGL15 was initially present in the cytoplasm of cells and became nuclear localized before or soon after embryogenic cell divisions began. These results support the hypothesis that AGL15 participates in the regulation of programs active during the early stages of embryo development.  (+info)

BUNDLE SHEATH DEFECTIVE2, a novel protein required for post-translational regulation of the rbcL gene of maize. (7/1627)

The Bundle sheath defective2 (Bsd2) gene is required for ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) accumulation in maize. Using a Mutator transposable element as a molecular probe, we identified a tightly linked restriction fragment length polymorphism that cosegregated with the bsd2-conferred phenotype. This fragment was cloned, and sequences flanking the Mutator insertion were used to screen a maize leaf cDNA library. Using a full-length cDNA clone isolated in this screen, we show that an abundant 0.6-kb transcript could be detected in wild-type plants but not in bsd2-m1 plants. This 0.6-kb transcript accumulated to low levels in plants carrying an allele derived from bsd2-m1 that conditions a less severe mutant phenotype. Taken together, these data strongly suggest that we have cloned the Bsd2 gene. Sequence analysis of the full-length cDNA clone revealed a chloroplast targeting sequence and a region of homology shared between BSD2 and the DnaJ class of molecular chaperones. This region of homology is limited to a cysteine-rich Zn binding domain in DnaJ believed to play a role in protein-protein interactions. We show that BSD2 is targeted to the chloroplast but is not involved in general photosynthetic complex assembly or protein import. In bsd2 mutants, we could not detect the Rubisco protein, but the chloroplast-encoded Rubisco large subunit transcript (rbcL) was abundant and associated with polysomes in both bundle sheath and mesophyll cells. By characterizing Bsd2 expression patterns and analyzing the bsd2-conferred phenotype, we propose a model for BSD2 in the post-translational regulation of rbcL in maize.  (+info)

Independent regulation of flowering by phytochrome B and gibberellins in Arabidopsis. (8/1627)

Phytochromes and gibberellins (GAs) coordinately regulate multiple aspects of Arabidopsis development. Phytochrome B (PHYB) promotes seed germination by increasing GA biosynthesis, but inhibits hypocotyl elongation by decreasing the responsiveness to GAs. Later in the life cycle of the plant, PHYB and GAs have opposite effects on flowering. PHYB delays flowering, while GAs promote flowering, particularly under noninductive photoperiods. To learn how PHYB and GAs interact in the control of flowering, we have analyzed the effect of a phyB mutation on flowering time and on the expression of the floral meristem-identity gene LFY (LEAFY). We show that the early flowering caused by phyB correlated with an increase in LFY expression, which complements our previous finding that GAs are required for activation of LFY under noninductive photoperiods (M.A. Blazquez, R. Green, O. Nilsson, M.R. Sussman, D. Weigel [1998] Plant Cell 10: 791-800). Since phyB did not change the GA responsiveness of the LFY promoter and suppressed the lack of flowering of severe GA-deficient mutants under short days, we propose that PHYB modulates flowering time at least partially through a GA-independent pathway. Interestingly, the effects of PHYB on flowering do not seem to be mediated by transcriptional up-regulation of genes such as CO (CONSTANS) and FT (Flowering locus T), which are known to mediate the effects of the photoperiod-dependent floral-induction pathway.  (+info)

Plants induce long-lasting systemic immunity after local pathogen attack by emitting resistance-priming signals from infection sites. A number of plant molecules have been proposed as mobile factors for this response, but many do not fully satisfy criteria for timing and action in systemic immunity. Azelaic acid has been identified as a pathogen-induced metabolite in Arabidopsis vascular sap that has several properties of a long-distance resistance-priming signal.. ...
Over the years, Ive learned three basic principles of plant growth that help me decide where to make a precise pruning cut. First, apical buds (at the tip of a branch) have dominance over lateral buds (on the side of a branch), so the removal of the apical bud results in the growth of lateral buds. When a cut is made just above a bud, that bud will usually become dominant, but if a cut is made mid stem, a flush of growth from a number of buds along the stem may occur ...

In the production and breeding of Chrysanthemum sp., shoot branching is an important quality aspect as the outgrowth of axillary buds determines the final plant shape. Bud outgrowth is mainly controlled by apical dominance and the crosstalk between the plant hormones auxin, cytokinin and strigolactone. In this work the hormonal and genetic regulation of axillary bud outgrowth was studied in two differently branching cut flower Chrysanthemum morifolium (Ramat) genotypes. C17 is a split-type which forms an inflorescence meristem after a certain vegetative period, while C18 remains vegetative under long day conditions. Plant growth of both genotypes was monitored during 5 subsequent weeks starting one week before flower initiation occurred in C17. Axillary bud outgrowth was measured weekly and samples of shoot apex, stem and axillary buds were taken during the first two weeks. We combined auxin and cytokinin measurements by UPLC-MS/MS with RT-qPCR expression analysis of genes involved in shoot ...
The control of shoot branching and its impact on plant architecture have fundamental implications for the development of more productive crops (reviewed in Xie et al., 2010; Brewer et al., 2013). Considerable progress has been made in understanding the hormonal control of axillary bud outgrowth. The discovery of the importance of the shoot apex, in decapitation experiments, led to the formulation of the apical dominance theory. According to this, auxin, known then as the growth substance, inhibits the outgrowth of lateral buds (Thimann & Skoog, 1933). Several early studies focused on the antagonistic roles of auxins and cytokinins (CKs) in controlling bud outgrowth (Skoog & Thimann, 1940; Gunckel & Thimann, 1949; Thimann et al., 1971; Morris, 1977), also detailed in more recent work (Bangerth et al., 2000; Pernisova et al., 2009; Shimizu-Sato et al., 2009).. However, experiments studying long-distance signals in mutants that exhibited increased branching or tillering suggested that factors in ...

The shoot apical meristem (SAM) of angiosperm plants is a highly organized minute structure that gives rise to all aboveground organs. The SAM is divided into three different functional domains. The central zone (CZ) at the SAM tip harbors the self-renewing pluripotent stem cells and the organizing center, providing daughter cells that are continuously displaced into the interior rib zone (RZ) or to the surrounding peripheral zone (PZ), from which organ primordia are initiated. Despite the constant flow of cells from the CZ into the RZ or PZ, and cell recruitment for primordium formation, a stable balance is maintained between the distinct cell populations in the SAM. Here we combined an in depth phenotypic analysis with a comparative RNA-Seq approach to characterize meristems from selected combinations of clavat3 (clv3), jabba-1D (jba1D) and erecta (er) mutants. We demonstrate that CLV3 restricts meristem expansion along the apical basal axis, while class III HD-ZIP and ER pathways restrict ...

a) Permanent branches. These are strong shoots which come from strong main buds. Such shoots continue growing for many years, and develop into the permanent structure of the plant. Most axillary main buds along a strongly growing shoot remain dormant, but eventually the main shoot axis becomes less vigorous, the terminal bud becomes weaker, and extension growth is stopped by the formation of a terminal fruiting mother branch (see below). Axillary main buds further down the stem then break dormancy to produce strong shoots, which ultimately develop into new permanent branches. Occasionally, weak main buds along the shoot break dormancy and produce fruiting, mother branches.. (b) Secondary branches. These are produced from strong lateral buds along the current extension growth of permanent branches. Secondary branches typically zigzag, because the direction of branch growth changes at each node.

Shoot branching is a major determinant of plant shoot architecture. Many factors contribute to the ability of an axillary bud to grow out to form a branch, including developmental, positional, genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors. Auxin, cytokinin (CK), and strigolactones (SLs) are implicated in the hormonal regulation of bud outgrowth; auxin and SLs as inhibitors of bud outgrowth and CK as a promoter of bud outgrowth (Dun et al., 2009a; Leyser, 2009; Beveridge and Kyozuka, 2010). Many studies over a number of decades have investigated the antagonistic action of auxin and CK in bud outgrowth control (Shimizu-Sato et al., 2009) and, more recently, the relationships between auxin and SL (Brewer et al., 2009; Crawford et al., 2010; Liang et al., 2010), but how SL and CK integrate to antagonistically control bud outgrowth remains unclear.. Prior to their identification as hormones involved in shoot branching, certain properties of SLs were characterized based on studies of the long-distance ...

Although they are not directly exposed to light in most plant species, light influences the growth characteristics of roots (Feldman, 1984; Halliday et al., 2009). How root growth is controlled by light and integrated with developmental responses in the above-ground organs to shape the overall plant architecture is still largely unknown. Here, we provide strong evidence that light regulates root growth by modulating shoot-to-root PAT and identify auxin as a crucial long-distance signal in the regulation of root growth by light. We show that chemical inhibition of PAT in the hypocotyl, or decreasing shoot-derived auxin by genetic approaches, mimic the effect of darkness on root growth. Our results using the DII-VENUS and DR5 auxin signaling sensors (Brunoud et al., 2012; Ulmasov et al., 1997; Friml et al., 2003), further suggest that dark-induced inhibition of shoot-to-root PAT in the hypocotyl results in auxin accumulation in the shoot apex and in a reduction in auxin levels at the base of the ...

Meyerowitz and Somerville developed a research project employing live imaging of dynamic plant processes followed by computational image processing to study two key processes: cellular differentiation in shoot apical meristems and cellulose synthesis. Elliot Meyerowitz initially involved Marcus Heisler, a pioneer of the new live imaging method, who worked on the live imaging of growing shoot apical meristems and computational modeling of cell behaviour and cell- cell communication during meristem growth. After Dr. Heisler left Caltech to establish his own laboratory at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, the project involved two additional postdoctoral fellows, Dr. Wuxing Li and Dr. Paul Tarr, who carried the shoot apical meristem work forward by investigating the involvement of the plant hormones auxin and cytokinin in the control of cell expansion, division and gene expression, and therefore, the contribution of these growth hormones to the interaction of physical and ...

In higher plants, the shoot apical meristem (SAM) is the source of all the above-ground organs. Accordingly, key processes that elaborate shoot architecture are localized in the SAM. An aggregate of small cells located in the distal portion of the shoot, the SAM supplies cells that divide and differentiate to form the elements of the shoot (Medford, 1992). The initiation of lateral organs is related to the structure of the SAM, including its so-called zonation, which is based on anatomical features and cell division patterns. The central zone, in which cell division is less frequent, is located in the center of the SAM and acts as a pool of undifferentiated, indeterminate cells. In the peripheral zone flanking the SAM, cells divide more frequently and are incorporated into leaf primordia. The proximal region, called the rib zone, supplies the cells that form the body of the stem. At the same time, the SAM can be viewed in terms of clonally distinct cell layers (L1, L2, and L3). The outermost ...

Peptide signaling plays a significant role in various aspects of plant growth and development and specific receptors for various peptides have been identified as being membrane-localized receptor kinases, the largest family of receptor-like molecules in plants. Signaling peptides include members of the following protein families. Systemin - is a small polypeptide functioning as a long-distance signal to activate chemical defenses against herbivores. It was the first plant hormone proven to be a peptide. Systemin induces the production of protein defense compound called protease inhibitors. Systemin was first identified in tomato leaves. It was found to be an 18-amino acid peptide processed from the C-terminus of a 200-amino acid precursor, which is called prosystemin. CLV3/ESR-related (CLE) peptide family - CLV3 encodes a small secreted peptide that functions as a short range ligand to the membrane-bound CLV1 receptor like kinase that together with CLV2 (a receptor-like protein) function to ...
Cytokinin application to dormant buds will cause them to develop. A witches broom is caused by a pathogen such as the bacterium Corynebacterium fascians (or A. tumefaciens) that produces cytokinin which, in turn, causes stimulates lateral bud development (branching). These results suggest that apical dominance may be related to cytokinin, too.. For example, when tobacco cells are infected with the Ti-plasmid that has been modified to possess the heat shock promoter, a heat treatment stimulates the cells to produce increased amounts of cytokinin. These plants exhibit less apical dominance and remain green longer than non-heat treated controls. Thus, these results support the conclusion that senescence and apical dominance are related to cytokinin levels.. G. Promote cell ...
Tomato plants are vines, initially decumbent, typically growing six feet or more above the ground if supported, although erect bush varieties have been bred, generally three feet tall or shorter. Indeterminate types are tender perennials, dying annually in temperate climates (they are originally native to tropical highlands), although they can live up to three years in a greenhouse in some cases. Determinate types are annual in all climates.. Tomato plants are dicots, and grow as a series of branching stems, with a terminal bud at the tip that does the actual growing. When that tip eventually stops growing, whether because of pruning or flowering, lateral buds take over and grow into other, fully functional, vines.[42]. Tomato vines are typically pubescent, meaning covered with fine short hairs. These hairs facilitate the vining process, turning into roots wherever the plant is in contact with the ground and moisture, especially if the vines connection to its original root has been damaged or ...

Dear Colleagues: Will you be so kind to help us with pursuing the research of the cytokinin receptor from maize? Previously, we have isolated and characterized a cytokinin-binding protein with the molecular mass of 70 kDa (CBP-70) and showed its receptor properties [1,2]. Monoclonal antibodies were obtained for this receptor [3]. Several antibodies were able to regulate the basic function of the receptor: activation of cytokinin-dependent RNA synthesis [4]. At present we are studying the receptor content in plant organs and their parts (2 - 5 day old etiolated maize shoots) by immunochemical methods. Preliminary results are, in our opinion, very interesting. We think that elucidation of the correlation between the content of cytokinins in tissue (or in the cell) and the content, synthesis and activity of the receptor is of great scientific and practical interest. Please help us to find colleagues possessing IPT transformed maize plants or planning to obtain transformants with controlled ...

  • MSc-thesis abstract (submitted 20 March 2017): The objective of this research was to determine whether the effect of Phytochrome Photostationary State (PSS) defined by R:FR ratios on partitioning to the roots and shoots can be explained by auxin biosynthesis and signalling. (
  • So, I don't want to cut off the growing point, as this will stop the upper pitchers for at least a few months, but would like some basal shoots to appear, as they have in some of the other plants. (
  • i didn't think the bicals did basal shoots or at least never heard of it. (
  • However, the regeneration of plants through the spreading of rhizomes and development of new shoots is a type of non-sexual, vegetative propagation, because the progeny are genetically identical to the parent. (
  • Some species of tree can regenerate extensively by issuing new vegetative shoots from their underground rhizomes, after damages caused by disturbance by fire or harvesting. (
  • However, phenological and molecular examination of key photoperiod signaling molecules reveals functional differences between these two plant model systems suggesting alternative components and/or regulatory mechanisms operating during poplar vegetative growth. (
  • In apple, the first-order branch of a tree has a characteristic architecture constituting three shoot types: bourses (rosettes), bourse shoots, and vegetative shoots. (
  • Organ Formation at the Vegetative Shoot Meristem. (
  • Due to the regulated balance between stem cell maintenance and organogenesis, the structure and morphology of the shoot meristem are constrained during vegetative development. (
  • There is one report that this plant has an edible fruit[177] but this is somewhat dubious, the fruit is a dry capsule containing the very hard seeds[K]. (
  • This year I'll be direct-planting an organic tendril-climbing variety of ' Sugar Snap ' peas from Johnny's Selected Seeds. (
  • Seeds are sown compactly in a growing tray ( like done here ), once they get past their cotyledon or true leaves, in it's first inches the pea is considered a microgreen or pea shoot. (
  • Talking of cold snaps, it is time to replace the greenhouse heater to protect our precious seeds that will soon be sown, overwintering plants and our Christmas lettuces. (
  • Thanks to this wall, viruses have no active way of penetrating plant cells but rely on mechanical wounds or infected seeds for transmission. (
  • Police took a Tiburon man's pellet rifle into evidence Saturday after he fatally shot a doe and a fawn on his property. (
  • A Tiburon man was arrested after fatally shooting a doe and her fawn that were eating his yard plants. (
  • Thomas Eugene Bradford, 43, is accused of fatally shooting 38-year-old Raymond V. Lee, of Grovetown, at a Martinez wastewater treatment plant on April 1. (

  • Shooting Star Wax Plant is an indestructible houseplant can be grown as a hanging basket or a windowsill specimen with its stems trailing over the pot's rim. (
  • We despatch our fresh, nursery-grown live plants (including vegetables, trees and flowers) when they are at a stage of growth ready for you, the customer, to plant on at home. (
  • Plants were then grown with their roots separated into two parts, each receiving different levels of nitrogen, to explore the roles of CEPD1 and CEPD2. (
  • Usually new yucca plants are grown from cut off bits of main stem. (
  • Plants ( Solanum tuberosum L.) were grown in the presence of M. brunneum applied either as non-formulated mycelium or as mycelium containing beads. (
  • In my experience basals form spontaneously when the main stem gets long enough (and side shoots form when it gets even longer). (
  • Don's Expert Answers: my yucca has multiple side shoots up its trunk. (
  • Plant species that have well developed rhizomes often rely on these organs as a means of propagation. (
  • Horticulturalists take advantage of the ease of propagation of certain plants with rhizomes by using bud-containing segments of these organs to grow new plants. (
  • This also includes the search for mechanical support by circumnutations of aerial organs in climbing plants, namely, pendular, elliptical or circular oscillatory movements. (
  • The size, shape and spatial orientation of plant organs are, therefore, not pure coincidence but the result of a morphogenetic program which is carried out by a whole range of physiological processes. (
  • Ecophysiological experiments aim at changing the microenvironment of a selected plant and its organs and even at pushing it to an extreme limit, in order to obtain knowledge about the growth and developmental potential in a certain parameter space. (
  • FSPM aims at the integration of the dynamics of known physiological processes with information about the topology and geometry of organs (plant architecture) using mainly rule-based mathematical modeling ( Buck-Sorlin, 2013 ). (
  • The maize ( Zea mays ) shoot apical meristem ( SAM ) arises early in embryogenesis and functions during stem cell maintenance and organogenesis to generate all the aboveground organs of the plant. (
  • The shoot apical meristem contains a pool of undifferentiated stem cells and controls initiation of all aerial plant organs. (
  • Phenotypic correlations of meristem morphology with adult plant traits showed an association between the meristem and flowering time, leaf shape, and yield traits, revealing links between the control and architecture of undifferentiated and differentiated plant organs. (
  • The shoot tissues arise from the shoot apical meristem as dermal tissue, ground tissue, and vascular tissue. (
  • Plant shoots develop new leaves, stems, and buds throughout the life cycle via the maintenance of an organogenic population of stem cells within the stem cell niche or shoot apical meristem ( SAM ). (
  • The study presented here expanded on this by investigating shoot apical meristem morphology across a diverse set of maize inbred lines. (
  • Such responses to night break experiments suggest that poplar shoot growth and Arabidopsis flowering share a similar photoperiod regulation mechanism. (
  • However, nutations occur also in some non-climbing plants, such as Arabidopsis thaliana , without any obvious purpose (see Figure 1 and Video 1). (
  • To identify the gene(s) switched on when the CEP receptor is activated, researchers screened genetic candidates that were highly upregulated following treatment of the model plant Arabidopsis with CEP. (
  • The first 911 call came in around 6:45 a.m., saying that a gunman was moving about the complex and that he had shot several people. (

  • Chief Navarre said Meyers pointed a shotgun at the head of a female office worker and said he was there to shoot the supervisors and team leader. (
  • Subsequent reports indicate that Taylor had reprimanded Higdon twice before the shooting, once for talking on his cell phone too much and for not wearing safety glasses, then later for an altercation with co-worker Joshua Hinojosa at a convenience store across the street from the factory. (
  • The roots, or rhizomes, secrete a chemical that prevents other plants from growing, and they grow so deep they are nearly impossible to pull out. (
  • Today we have been planting strawberry plants, we know it's a bit late in the year but we have some plants left in the greenhouse that were looking a bit sorry for themselves and the unseasonal high temperatures prompted us to get them in situ. (
  • In the 2011 floods, Landers Shute WTP played an integral role in supporting Brisbane's water supply needs when the Mt Crosby Water Treatment Plant went offline. (
  • We are adding search terms and icons to those plants pages, and providing a range of search options aligned to categories of plants and crop yields, with Help facilities including videos. (
  • The two shooting victims inside the plant are in critical condition, and the woman is in serious condition. (
  • The victims were all shot with a Hi-Point Model JHP .45-caliber pistol. (
  • NPA application on 21 days old Moneymaker wildtype plants was not effective, however effects of a disturbed auxin transport were observed after NPA application on 14 days old Moneymaker phyB1phyB2 mutant plants. (
  • These observations indicate that auxin transport to the root system is requisite for healthy plant growth. (
  • Disturbed auxin transport to the roots under high PSS gave a similar shading response as plants under low PSS, with undisturbed auxin transport. (
  • Roots play a critical, but largely unappreciated, role in aboveground anti-herbivore plant defense (e.g. resistance and tolerance) and root-leaf connections may therefore result in unexpected coupling between above- and belowground consumers. (
  • Join The Red Room Company and The Planthunter in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney for a guided garden tour to celebrate NEW SHOOTS - a collaborative project culminating in a network of "poetic pathways" mapping the Garden. (
  • Secondary meristems (vascular cambium and cork cambium) then add girth to the plant by adding secondary xylem, phloem, and cork. (
  • In dicots and gymnosperms the majority of the plant tissue is composed of secondary vascular tissues. (
  • Vascular plants have developed different architectures as part of their genetic blueprint and in response to a changing environment ( Sussex and Kerk, 2001 ). (
  • VANCOUVER, British Columbia - May 19, 2021 - PRLog -- The makers of plant-based functional supplement beverages are hoping to disrupt the functional shot category with the launch of their new line of powerful superfood decoctions. (
  • Courgettes are hungry plants so be sure to provide plants with rich loamy compost and / or Organic Extra throughout the growing season. (
  • Just to make sure, if you want to produce new plants, you should put a plant-pot full of compost under it and gently push it in to the compost. (
  • leaf drop due to poor light, dry air, or natu-ral causes on old woody plants. (
  • Models based on allometric relations have been established in this study in order to predict the leaf areas of the three different shoot types of three apple cultivars with different branch architectures: "Fuji," "Ariane," and "Rome Beauty. (
  • The allometric relations derived from experimental data allowed us to model the total shoot leaf area as well as the individual leaf area for each leaf rank, for each shoot type and each genotype. (
  • This was achieved using two easily measurable input variables: total leaf number per shoot and the length of the biggest leaf on the shoot. (
  • The models were tested using a different data set, and they were able to accurately predict leaf area of all shoot types and genotypes. (
  • Thus, plants integrate roots in resistance and tolerance mechanisms for leaf defense, and such root-leaf connections inherently link the dynamics of above- and belowground consumers. (
  • Leaf spots on any plant happen because of prolonged wet weather. (
  • Yes, its a runner - they throw out a long shoot with a leaf or two on the end, and if it touches the ground, it roots itself, making a new plant. (
  • Highest shoot induction was observed in medium supplemented with 1.75 mg/l BAP in GBK-043050 (3.00) whereas GBK-043094 (1.28) had the least response in medium supplemented with 1.0 mg/l BAP. (
  • The rate shoot multiplication (6.3) after 4 week of culture on MS basal medium supplemented with 8.87 μM BA, 2.69 μM NAA. (

  • Davidson is quick to say that his research doesn't advocate removing native plants in favor of Phragmites . (
  • Ivey announced that he would use deadly force, ordered Ms. Plant to drop the weapon and retreated. (
  • During one of those recordings, Blake admitted to planting the weapon. (
  • Well I wouldn't have actually shot unless he pulled out a weapon and came at me. (
  • Light: full sun except light shade in summer for plants either outdoors or indoors. (
  • A mass shooting occurred at an ABB power plant in St Louis, Missouri, on January 7, 2010. (
  • No scientists are advocating for actually planting Phragmites , and Mass. Audubon, the state, the National Park Service and many other groups have active programs to combat it. (
  • The Atlantis Plastics shooting was an incident of mass murder that took place at an Atlantis Plastics factory in Henderson, Kentucky, United States on June 25, 2008. (
  • Do plants pay a price for evolving with complex defense mechanisms? (
  • Thanks to the simultaneous occurrence of these two oscillatory mechanisms, we are able to reproduce a variety of complex behaviors, including trochoid-like patterns, which evolve into circular orbits as the shoot length increases, and the amplitude of the exogenous oscillations becomes dominant. (
  • Nagoya University researchers discovered the molecular mechanisms underlying the shoot-to-root stage of nitrogen-demand signaling in plants. (
  • These results form the basis for further exploration of the mechanisms underlying this family of peptides and suggest their putative roles in distinct developmental events of higher plants. (
  • Both of my newly planted Passion Flowers have been eaten by earwigs (I found them inside the flower bud having eaten the petals). (

  • 67%). Shoot apical meristems from three-day old seedlings were evaluated for their potency of shoot induction on varied 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) concentrations. (
  • SAM , shoot apical meristems. (
  • The plant, which typically grows about 13 feet high, looms over native marsh plants, blocking out their sunlight. (
  • The nature of plant circumnutations has been intensively investigated over the last century, and this produced three main hypotheses ( Stolarz, 2009 ). (
