Abstract

Plant developmental processes can be studied using tissue culture models, e. g., the production of somatic embryos using cell suspension cultures. In this study, a putrescine/arginine treatment was used to synchronize the embryogenic process, and two-dimensional electrophoresis was used to compare the translational profiles at different stages of embryo formation [P.M. Bradley (1984) Ph.D. Thesis, Worcester Polytechnic Institute].
