Title: Asymmetric distribution in the biosynthesis of cotton cellulose-[U-14C]

Author: Riffer, R.; Broido, A.;

Date: 1974

Source: Journal of Experimental Botany. 25(1): 216-218

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Autoradiographs of mature cotton bolls which earlier had radioglucose introduced via a thin incision into their peduncles show a marked asymmetry in distribution of the label. Radio-assay shows the specific activity of the cotton fibres on the treated side to be as much as 30-fold that on the opposite side.

Keywords: translocation, pyrolysis
