A novel sperm structure solve a mystery

How the embryo obtains some of it’s organelles is still a mystery. We know that the nucleus that contains the genetic code comes from the father and the mother via the sperm and egg. We also know

Live-cell imaging revealed the dynamics and the roles of cytoskeleton in polarizing plant zygote

Asymmetric cell division is one of the fundamental steps to form the plant body axis. In most flowering plants, the apical-basal axis is established by the asymmetric division of the zygote. In a model plant Arabidopsis thaliana,
