ABSTRACT
The embryo spores of Laminaria japonica were cultured in artificial seawater with different N/P ratio to observe their early development. 80 percent of the spores cultivated in whole-ingredient artificial seawater developed normally, but the time of spore germination and gametophyte formation was lagged significantly and the amount of female gametes was significantly higher than that of male gametes (P<0.001), as compared to the control cultivated in natural seawater. Artificial seawater with different N/P ratio showed different effects on the spore germination rate. The artificial seawater with N/P > 15 decreased the spore germination rate, while that without N or P inhibited the spore germination significantly (P<0.001). It was concluded that L. japonica spores could develop normally in artificial seawater, but their germination rate was affected by the seawater N/P. The deficiency of N or P in artificial seawater would lag the time of gametophyte formation and affect the differentiation ratio of female-male gametes.

    A definition of the term gametophyte is presented. It refers to the individual organism or generation of organisms that produces reproductive cells, called gametes, in plants, fungi, and certain algae. Each cell of a gametophyte has only one set of chromosomes, just as its gametes do. In...

    Gametophytes predominated clearly over tetrasporophytes in an intertidal population of Chondrus crispus at Tor Bay (Nova Scotia, Canada) in the summer of 1991. Since this species is perennial and the rocky substrate is stable at this site, we predicted that gametophyte predominance would persist...

    The endosporic male gametophyte of the water fern, Marsilea vestita, provides a unique opportunity to study the mechanisms that control cell fate determination during a burst of rapid development. In this review, we show how the spatial and temporal control of development in this simple...

    Gametes are produced in plants through mitotic divisions in the haploid gametophytes. We investigated the role of EXPORTINI (XPO1) genes during the development of both female and male gametophytes of Arahidopsis. Exportins exclude target proteins from the nucleus and are also part of a complex...

    Sexual plant reproduction necessitates proper development of pollen, pollen germination and tube growth through various tissues of the pistil, the female organ of the flower. Finally, sperm cells are released to fertilize the female gametophyte. These processes require high metabolic activities...
