Inhibition of auxin-induced cell elongation of maize coleoptiles
by antibodies specific for cell wall glucanases.
Pooled samples of 10 coleoptiles
of each of the hybrids and their parental lines in two replications were used for extraction of crude enzymes except for ADH for which seed was used.
further observed that the guttation of Zea mays coleoptiles
The target species used were wheat coleoptiles
(Triticum aestivum L.
1996) also observed increased coleoptiles
speed of growth in wheat seedlings when they used A.
Andoh and Kobata  had shown that the length of coleoptiles
and seminal roots of paddy sprouts was declined as the soil water potential was lower than -0.
The S-Metolachlor is absorbed through the coleoptiles
of grasses and hypocotyl of broadleaves, and operates in the terminal bud in the process of cell division, inhibiting the synthesis of lipids, fatty acids, leaf waxes, terpenes, flavonoids and proteins, interfering with hormonal regulation, inhibiting the apical meristem and root.
The "essential structures" are the root and shoot axes, cotyledons, terminal buds and the coleoptiles
Schopfer P (1996) Hydrogen peroxide-mediated cell-wall stiffening in vitro in maize coleoptiles
In 1881, he and his son, Francis, reported on experiments performed with grass and oat coleoptiles
in The Power of Movement in Plants.
The longer coleoptiles
and larger root systems of tall cultivars compared with the semidwarfs likely contributes to their relative adaptation to dry environments, where deep sowing ensures contact with available soil moisture (Rebetzke and Richards, 2000; Trethowan et al.
In his book The Power of Movement in Plants (Darwin, 1880), he describes the effects of light on movement of coleoptiles
