  • Leaf anatomy of the members of Cornaceae family in conditions of the Forest-Steppe of Ukraine

    There are researches of many years of biological characteristics (fertility, vegetative propagation and other) in introduced species of Cornaceae family in the Ukraine, while there are few data on leaf micromorphology of these plants. The aim of our work was to investigate the anatomy and morphology of leaves of Cornaceae species. Cross sections of leaves were prepared and staining using standard histological methods, light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy were made. It was shown that all investigated species have the similar leaf anatomy: single–layer upper and lower epidermis covered with a cuticle and trichomes, the stomata are on the lower leaf side, the mesophyll consists of the palisade and spongy parenchyma ...

  • The participation of Ca2+-ATPase and calcium ions in plant adaptation to slow clinorotation

    The distribution of Ca2+-ATPase activity and Ca2+ in cortex cells of root distal elongation zone (DEZ) was investigated by an electron cytochemical method and laser scanning microscopy in Pisum sativum seedlings grown in the control and under adaptation to horizontal clinorotation (2 rpm), which partly imitated the biological effects of microgravity. The sensitivity of Ca2+-ATPase and Ca2+ to clinorotation conditions has been revealed. The study of Ca2+-ATPase localization in cells of DEZ showed the presence of this enzyme on plasma membrane (PM), vesicles, endoplasmic reticulum, and organelles envelope of the control and clinorotated samples. Clinorotation lead to the redistribution of Ca2+-ATPase on cell membranes ...

  • Comparative assessment of the sublingual secretion type in rabbit and some rodent species. Histochemical study.

    Salivary glands are adapted to the necessities of each species. In this context, we conducted a comparative histochemical study on the sublingual gland in rabbit and three rodent species, assessing the secretion type. We used the following species: mouse, guinea pig, chinchilla and rabbit. We harvested the sublingual glands and histologically processed them. The samples were subdued to PAS reaction to highlight neutral mucosubstances and Alcian blue to identify acid and sulfated mucosubstances. In mouse, guinea pig and chinchilla, the cytoplasm of the acini was intensely PAS positive. In rabbit, cells in acini presented a PAS negative reaction. Alcian blue reaction turned out to be positive in all species taken into study, with significant differences from one species to another. ...
