In vitro experiments showed that PSK has pleiotropic effects on cell growth and differentiation such as stimulating cell proliferation in Asparagus and rice,(5),(20) promoting tracheary element differentiation in Zinnia (17),(21) and enhancing somatic embryogenesis in carrot and Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica).
The increased main tiller thickness may be triggered by increasing parenchymatous cell volume (Martins & Castro, 1999) and enhancing tracheary element differentiation (Pesquet & Tuominen, 2011) due to ethylene overproduction in explant tissues.
Bordered pit pairs control movement of water from one tracheary element to the next in the wood of vascular plants (Zimmermann, 1983; Pittermann et al.
Vascular patterning can easily be analyzed during tracheary element differentiation form preexisting vasculature, however, their identification during the pre-existing vasculature is not an easy task [4].

Other topics include leaf senescence, the biology of arabinogalactan proteins, light regulation of stomatal movement, tetrapyrrole biosynthesis in higher plants, ATP-binding cassette transporters, and tracheary element differentiation.
Evidence for introduced Colocasia esculenta in the lower zone, and lower sample of the upper zone, was provided by starch grains, raphides (a type of calcium oxylate crystal), xylem tracheary elements and leaf epidermal tissue (Fig.
LIGNIN plays a vital role in plant growth and development by improving water conduction through xylem tracheary elements, enhancing the strength of fibrous tissues, and limiting the spread of pathogens in plant tissues (Iiyama et al.
