Pollen Tube Growth

Pollen Tube Growth

The pollen tube is an elongated tubular cell, a typical polar growth cell, whose growth is restricted to the apical region, resulting in a heterogeneous distribution of its cell wall components along the longitudinal axis of the pollen tube. In angiosperms, pollen tubes transport sperm cells to oocytes through apical growth to complete double fertilization. Pollen tubes have been used as model plant cells to study the biogenesis and molecular mechanisms of cell signaling, protein polarity transport, cell polarity generation and maintenance, and cytoskeletal space structure. Through biophysical techniques, we analyze the structure and function of pollen tubes, which in turn provides a theoretical basis for the study of plant fertilization and growth and development.

CD BioSciences is committed to establishing a professional and comprehensive biophysical technology platform for plant pollen tube growth research, aiming to reveal the structure, apical growth, and mechanical force mechanisms of pollen tubes, which have important biological functions and significance for plant fertilization and fertility, as well as crop yield.

Applications in Pollen Tube Growth

CD BioSciences is dedicated to the integration of biophysics and botany and has extensive experience in plant pollen tube growth studies to ensure the most professional analysis and accurate data for our clients.

Structural Analysis of Pollen Tubes

We can provide field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) to provide non-destructive observation and technical support for pollen tube cell wall studies. Our AFM imaging technology has the advantages of in-situ, non-destructive, and high resolution, which can directly observe the fine structure of pollen tubes in-situ under the closest physiological conditions and easily measure the physical parameters of the surface structure.

Mechanical Force Test

Plants are regulated by mechanical stimuli at all stages of growth and development. Due to the different structural and mechanical properties of the tissues of the various parts of the pistil, pollen tubes must monitor and differentiate between the patterns, levels, and durations of various mechanical stimuli. By responding quickly and appropriately, integrity can be maintained during passage through the pistil. We have specialized biomechanical testing techniques that can be used to measure the stiffness and elasticity of pollen tubes to explore their mechanical force properties and adaptations during growth.

Tip Growth Observation

Pollen tube pole tip growth is a complex kinetic process with important biological functions that are important for plant fertilization, fertilization, and crop yield. With our high magnification microscope imaging technique, it is possible to observe pollen tube growth processes, the most important of which are the dynamics of pollen tube cytoskeleton and cytoplasmic movement. In addition, the dynamics of pollen tube cell division, elongation, and cell wall changes can be observed using our technique, thus revealing the specific process of apical growth.
