Syncytial Type Cell Wall Formation in Arabidopsis

Endosperm Development

Nuclear-type endosperms undergo several cycles of nuclear division and repositioning of nuclei before cellularization. In Arabidopsis, the cellular-ization process, which involves the simultaneous formation of multiple cell plates between sister and non-sister nuclei, starts at the micropylar domain when the embryo reaches the globular stage of development (Fig. 1) (Otegui and Staehelin 2000b). This particular type of cytokinesis is called syncytial-type cytokinesis and differs from...
