About this book

Provides a concise and accessible overview of current research in plant cell proliferation, giving detailed examples of how it is regulated during the plant's growth and development.


Cyclin-dependent kinases in plants; tyrosine- and casein-protein kinases as possible mediators of cell cycle regulation in pisum sativum; biochemical aspects of S-phase reculation in the plant cell cycle; cytokinins and the plant cell cycle - problems and pitfalls of proving their function; auxin, cell division and the control of plant development; control of the cell division cycle changes in the shoot meristem of sinapis alba during the transition to flowering; environmental control of the cell cycle in higher plants; the cell cycle in roots of pisum sativum during germination and under abiotic stress; tolerance of meristematic root cells to water stress and quantitative variations of proteins at different subcellular level; effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal and ericoid fungi on the structure and activity of host cell nuclei; chromosome endoreduplication in plant tissue development and function; the development of intraspecific dominance in some nucleolar organizer regions of plants; exploring the root meristem with flow cytometry.
