Aposporous embryo sacs were identified easily due to the lack of antipodal cells and because they showed varying positions and orientation within the ovule.
It is, furthermore, the case that the embryo sac itself also exhibits polar organization, with the egg cell and synergids adjacent to the micropyle, while the antipodal cells are found at the opposite chalazal end.
As expected, using the antipodal amino acid resulted in the generation of a polyamino acid capable of catalysing the formation of the enantiomeric, epoxide with equal stereocontrol
The angiosperm female gametophyte, called the embryo sac, consists of four cell types: synergid, antipodal , egg, and central cell.
‘Sure, the antipodal geography is incorrect, but it helps turn the idea of a spherical planet from an abstraction into something concrete,’ Musser says.
The same antipodal vision persists in the stories collected by David Malouf under the title of Antipodes.
Being a weather geek now I need to know what the antipodal weather is.
The antipodal cells are much smaller than the other cells of the gametophyte and typically persist beyond anthesis.
I must be brave and not let our antipodal friends see the pain I bear at being denied this priceless entertainment.
Every location on earth has a counterpart that is directly opposite, called its antipodal point.
