Effects of Al3+ on root growth, cell division, and nucleoli in root tip cells of Zea mays L



Effects of Al3+ on root growth, cell division, and nucleoli in root tip cells of Zea mays L



Israel Journal of Plant Sciences 49(1): 21-26



The effects of different concentrations (10-5-10-1 M) of aluminium chloride on root growth, cell division and nucleoli in root tip cells of Z. mays were investigated. The results showed that Al inhibited root growth of Z. mays only at 10-2-10-1 M. Al3+ has a marked effect on c-mitosis. Al, at higher concentration, has toxic effects on root tip cells, causing aberration of chromosomal morphology and structure: c-mitosis, anaphase bridges and chromosome stickiness.
