Ultrastructural aspects of chromatin elimination in hybrid embryos of Hordeum

Krystyna Idzikowska, Fortunat Młodzianowski


Chromatin elimination was observed in hybrid embryos of Hordeum as incorporation of single chromosomes into tiny vacuoles-lysomes and as fragmentation of interphase nuclei: The latter process led mostly to the formation of micronuclei which underwent gradual degradation.
