Plant fiber intrusive growth characterized by NMR method

Plant fiber intrusive growth characterized by NMR method Intrusively growing plant cells insert themselves between surrounding cells, thus increasing the number of membranes on the tissue cross-section. This parameter can be assessed by spin echo NMR method with a magnetic field pulse gradient. Diffusion echo decay was measured for stem regions of long-fiber flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) differing in the stages of primary fiber development, which elongate thousand-fold during intrusive growth. Additionally, the number of fibers on stem cross-sections was counted under microscope. An increase in the slow component of the echo diffusion decay was correlated with an increase in the number of fibers on the stem cross-section in the zone of intrusive growth, while other stem-structure characteristics remained unchanged. Thus, NMR method can be used for characterization of intrusive fiber growth in situ. Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
