Reference Cárdenas L, McKenna ST, Kunkel JG, Hepler PK. NAD(P)H oscillates in pollen tubes and is correlated with tip growth. Plant Physiol. 2006 Dec142(4):1460-8.PubMed ID17041030
Method Pollen grains of lily (Lilium formosanum) were germinated and grown in lily growth medium (LGM), which is composed of 15 mM MES, 1.6 mM H3BO3, 1 mM KCl, 0.1 mM CaCl2, and 7% (0.2 M) Suc at pH 5.5. NAD(P)H is fluorescent and has been visualized by exciting at 340 to 365 nm and detecting emission at 400 to 500 nm
