Desoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) content in the female gametophyte and nucellus of rhoeo discolor

  • M. Nagaraj


Photometric determinations of Desoxyribonucleic acid in the haploid nuclei of the female gametophyte and diploid nuclei of nucellar cells show that the former have half the amount of DNA found in the latter and appear to establish a regular correspondence between the amount of DNA in the nucleus and its ploidy.
