Advances in imaging technology have opened up the possibility of visualizing individual actin filaments in real-time. CD BioSciences is committed to improving and optimizing experimental strategies to provide our clients with high-resolution imaging of the actin cytoskeleton in pollen tubes. Our professional scientific services and technical support will contribute to your research in the field of pollen tip growth.
An intact actin cytoskeleton is necessary for plants to maintain normal physiological processes such as cell morphogenesis, cell wall construction and signal transduction. Pollen tube elongation is a polar cell growth process that is heavily dependent on the regulation of the active actin cytoskeleton. Although actin has been shown to have an important role in the regulation of pollen germination and pollen tube growth, inadequate knowledge of the spatial organization and dynamics of actin filaments within the pollen tube growth domain has limited our understanding of how actin exerts its function.
For many years, actin has been the focus of numerous researchers who have attempted to establish a consistent and clear pattern of actin organization, particularly in the apex of the pollen tube. However, the results have varied greatly due to the problems of fixing very fast-growing cells and the fact that actin microfilaments are very fragile and therefore easily disrupted. Recent advances in live-cell imaging in the physical realm have opened up the possibility for researchers to understand the precise molecular mechanisms underlying actin cytoskeleton function in pollen tubes.
