    The C4 photosynthetic pathway provides a platform to gain insight into the formation, regulation, and biological consequences of leaf vein pattern modification. This review examines the functional role of the vascular system in C4 photosynthesis and the development of veins in C3 and C4 plants,...

    Background and Aims: Leaf venation in many C4 species is characterized by high vein density, essential in facilitating rapid intercellular diffusion of C4 photosynthetic metabolites between different tissues (mesophyll, bundle sheath). Greater vein density has been hypothesized to be an early...

  • Patterning of Leaf Vein Networks by Convergent Auxin Transport Pathways. Sawchuk, Megan G.; Edgar, Alexander; Scarpella, Enrico // PLoS Genetics;Feb2013, Vol. 9 Issue 2, Special section p1 

    The formation of leaf vein patterns has fascinated biologists for centuries. Transport of the plant signal auxin has long been implicated in vein patterning, but molecular details have remained unclear. Varied evidence suggests a central role for the plasma-membrane (PM)-localized PIN-FORMED1...

    The article presents the study of Timothy Brodribb and Taylor Feild suggesting that angiosperms are considered as the most dominant land plants due to the evolution of complex vein systems in their leaves.

    Neoplastic plant-tissue formation, termed crown gall disease, is induced on infection with Agrobacterium tumefaciens. The tumorous tissues develop an extensive vascular system, with a venation pattern distinct from that of native host plants. We report here that the plant-tumorigenic 6b gene of...

    We report petrographic, major and trace element data for xenoliths from the andesitic Avacha volcano (Kamchatka), which host orthopyroxene (opx)-rich veins of mantle origin formed either by rapid crystallization of intruded melts or by their interaction with the host harzburgite. Studies of such...

    The Roudný gold deposit, hosted by a large-scale NNE-SSW trending fault zone (the Blanice Graben), represents a type locality of low-fineness gold (Au-Ag) mineralization in the Bohemian Massif. In order to decipher its structural evolution, we performed a detailed analysis of brittle to...

    Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) are widespread units on genome sequences, and play many important roles in plants. In order to reveal the evolution of plant genomes, we investigated the evolutionary regularities of SSRs during the evolution of plant species and the plant kingdom by analysis of...

    Leaf vein forms the basis of leaf characterization and classification. Different species have different leaf vein patterns. It is seen that leaf vein segmentation will help in maintaining a record of all the leaves according to their specific pattern of veins thus provide an effective way to...

    Alfred Russell Wallace was a field naturalist with a strong interest in general physiology. In this vein, he wrote that oxygen (O), produced by green plants, is 'the food of protoplasm, without which it cannot continue to live'. Here we summarize current models relating body size to respiration...
