Vesicle Dynamics in Pollen Tubes
Pollen tubes are apically growing plant cells in which extension is accompanied by the fusion of vesicles with the tube tip. The vesicles arise from numerous dictyosomes, elements of the Golgi apparatus, present within the cytoplasm (Fig. 1). At the tip, the vesicles provide both the membrane and the cell wall carbohydrates necessary for the extension of the tube.
