Typically, paraphyses are absent and the ascospores are bicellular, with or without constriction at the septum (Batista, 1959).
Bicellular TJs (bTJs) are composed of TJ strands laterally connecting two neighboring cells, whereas tricellular TJs (tTJs) are formed by vertically extending TJ strands at the contact point of three cells [4].
Both the direct numerical simulations and linear stability analysis were used in order to show that vibrations delay the transition from unicellular to bicellular flow regime.
In anamorph, pear-shaped pycnidia contain unicellular or bicellular pycnidiospores (6-23 um) produced upon conidiophores (Punithalingam and Holliday, 1972; Nene, 1982).
Bicellular non-glandular trichomes are found in the margin (Figure 3F), abaxial surface and on the veins of the eophyll.
Trichomes mainly occur on the abaxial surface and they may be of three types: (i) prickle hairs (short and silicified, microscopic unicellular) (Figures 1C, F); (ii) macrohairs (macroscopic unicellular) (Figures 1E); (iii) or microhairs (microscopic bicellular) (Figures 1E, L, M).
-1) which contains numerous hyaline unicellular and occasionally bicellular spores called as pycnidiospores or conidia, developed on short conidiophores embedded in a mucilaginous mass.
Three types of glands have been described: the bladder cells of the Chenopodiaceae; the multicellular glands observed in dicotyledonous species of the families Acanthaceae, Aizoaceae, Aveceniaceae, Combretaceae; Convolvulaceae; Frankiaceae, Plumbaginaceae and Tamaricaceae (Waisel, 1972; Wahit, 2003; Kobayashi, 2008; Flowers et al, 2010); and the bicellular glands found in species of the Poaceae family (Liphschitz & Waisel, 1974; Fahn, 1979; Wieneke et al., 1987; Mauseth, 1988; Thomson, 1975; Marcum & Murdoch, 1994; Somaru et al., 2002; Wahit, 2003).
In this species the mature pollens are bicellular and ellipse shape.
In addition, a system of Agrobacterium- mediated transient expression of b-glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene in late unicellular and bicellular pollen was also established.
