List of recently published papers on plant flow cytometry - September

September issues have been quite generous for flow cytometry related works... This month will contemplate 8 highlights from many different areas... A sign that flow cytometry is being more and more applied in different fields of plant sciences.

Genome size:
Fuchs J, Jovtchev G, Schubert I. The chromosomal distribution of histone methylation marks in gymnosperms differs from that of angiosperms. Chromosome Research (2008) 16:891–898.

Smarda P, Bures P, Horová L, Rotreklová O. Intrapopulation genome size dynamics in Festuca pallens. Annals of Botany (2008) 102:599–607.

Ploidy level:

Lim WS, Earle ED. Effect of in vitro and in vivo colchicine treatments on pollen production and fruit set of melon plants obtained by pollination with irradiated pollen. Plant Cell Tissue and Organ Culture (2008) 95:115-124.

Weber J, Georgiev V, Pavlov A, Bley T. Flow cytometric investigations of diploid and tetraploid plants and in vitro cultures of Datura stramonium and Hyoscyamus niger. Cytometry (2008) 73A:931-939.

Algae physiological studies:
Li Y, Huang J, Sandmann G, Chen F. Glucose sensing and the mitochondrial alternative pathway are involved in the regulation of astaxanthin biosynthesis in the dark-grown Chlorella zofingiensis (Chlorophyceae). Planta (2008) 228:735–743.
