This would lead to the dissembly of polyribosomes (Lin and Glazer, 1981), incomplete methylation (Almstedt et al.
Fragile-X mental retardation protein (FMRP) is a protein involved in ferrying RNA transcripts to polyribosomes located at sites of protein synthesis.
Common findings were dilated stacks of rough endoplasmic reticulum, polyribosomes, randomly distributed intermediate filaments, and rare collagen secretion granules (Fig 5).
Also, the other cellular alterations such as decreased protein content, increased ribonuclease activity, protein hydrolysis, hydrogen peroxide concentration and dissociation of polyribosomes are also known to occur in plants exposed to water stress [15,22].
