The role of microtubules in the growth of pollen tube tip

  Pollen grains were sown on agar germination media containing increasing concentrations of the following disruptors, oryzalin and colchicines. Germination tube length was examined and results were evaluated. Treatment with oryzalin caused a slight but significant reduction in pollen germination while colchicines did not affect germination. All the microtubules (MTs) disruptors caused a decline in pollen tube...

Performance of catfish (Clarias gariepinus, Burchell, 1822) fed enzyme supplemented dried rumen digesta

  The growth response of catfish (Clarias gariepinus) fingerlings fed with varying levels of enzyme supplemented dried rumen digesta meal (EDRD) was conducted for 70 days in Nursery cages (hapa nets) suspended in outdoor concrete tanks. One hundred and fifty (150) fish were randomly assigned to five diets formulated such that EDRD replaces soybean at 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40%, respectively. Thirty fish...
