Quotes

"Cell division in the meristem is maintained by PLETHORA transcription factors. These proteins are solely transcribed in the stem cells, in a narrow region within the meristematic cells located in the tip of the root. So PLETHORA proteins are most abundant in the stem cells" Ari Pekka Mhnen says
...Arabidopsis models may accelerate the development of a treatment that is both effective and affordable by those who need it most,” said McCourt. "Spraying soil infested with Striga seeds to germinate them should theoretically rid the soil of the predator plant, allowing food crops to be planted and grown until they are ready to be harvested.”"
...of plant fertilization at the cellular level and, at the same time, listen to the 'tête-à-tête' between male and female cells," Grossmann said. "Further work is necessary to decode the language and understand what is actually being said."
...According to news reporting originating from Diepenbeek, Belgium , by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "The presence of explosives in soils and the interaction with drought stress and nutrient limitation are among the environmental factors that severely affect plant growth on military soils. In this study, we seek to isolate and identify the cultivable bacteria of a 2,4-dinitrotoluene (DNT) contaminated soil (DS) and an adjacent grassland soil (GS) of a military training area aiming to isolate new plant growth-promoting (PGP) and 2,4-DNT-degrading strains."
