Scanning Electron Microscopic Observations of Cytoskeletal Arrangement in Wheat Young Leaf Cells and Its Intercellular Connection

Wei Xiang-yun and Jian Ling-cheng   

Abstract: By using the techniques of partial digestidon of cell wall and selective extraction authors examined the cytoskeleton in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) young leaf cells under scanning electron microscope. A three-dimensional cytoskeletal system showing some new features was observed. The cortical network locating beneath the cross wall is an anastomosing organization. Association between nucleus and cell wall by omc skeletal filaments was observed. It is noticeable that there are cytoskeletal filaments, which pass through cell wall, combine adjacent cells cytoskeletal arrays together. Thus it is po sible that an integral skeletal network exist within wheat young leaf tissue.

Key words: Cytoskeleton, Intercellular connection, Wheat
