Plasma membrane thickness and flowering induction in Chenopodium rubrum and in Spinacia oleracea

Abstract

The leaves plasma membranes could be implicated in flowering induction process. Comparative studies have been carried out with a short day plant, Chenopodium rubrum, and a long day plant, Spinacia oleracea. Electron microscopic observations have shown modifications of membrane thickness and structure. A modification of plasmalemma sterols content also appeared during floral transition. Implications of these phenomena on plant physiology were discussed.
