    The article discusses the growth of plants from a monocotyledonous source which includes several stages including the emergence of a leaf from a monocot which is called as coleoptile, the presence of growing point near the crown of the seedling and the elongation of internodes.

    The shoot of grass coleoptiles consists of the mesocotyl, the node, and the coleoptile (with enclosed primary leaf). Since the 1930s, it is known that auxin (indole-3-acetic acid, IAA), produced in the tip of the coleoptile, is the central regulator of turgor-driven organ growth. Fifty years...

    Overexpression of Arabidopsis Reversion-To-ethylene Sensitivity1 (RTE1) results in whole-plant ethylene insensitivity dependent on the ethylene receptor gene Ethylene Response1 (ETR1). However, overexpression of the tomato RTE1 homologue Green Ripe (GR) delays fruit ripening but does not confer...

    Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), mixed with lanolin, was applied to the surface of defined parts of the intact coleoptile of maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings, and the elongation growth of the coleoptile zone was monitored for a period of 8 h. When IAA was applied to a subapical region, the growth of...

    Autolytic activities of coleoptile cell walls were measured in developing maize seedlings. The major neutral sugar components of the cell wall polysaccharides were arabinose, xylose and glucose. The quantities of all these components per coleoptile increased for 5 d after germination, suggesting...

    It has been interesting that nearly all of the ion activities that have been analysed thus far have exhibited oscillations that are tightly coupled to growth. Here, we present discrete Fourier transform (DFT) spectra with a finite sampling of tip-growing cells and organs that were obtained from...

    The role of abscisic acid (ABA) in controlling growth and development has been studied in maize (Zea mays L.) coleoptile segments. Application of ABA reduces the elongation rate by about 50% and affects ion fluxes. In particular, proton extrusion is decreased while potassium efflux is greatly...

    Establishment of seedlings is a key factor in achievement of uniform field stands and, consequently, stable yields. Under Mediterranean conditions, soil moisture in the upper layer is limited and seedlings may be exposed to frequent dehydration events. The presence of the Reduced height...

    The article focuses on the importance of the growing point of a corn plant for overall development and survival of the plant and further reports that growing point's position is critical for protecting the plant from aboveground damage.
