April 2 to April 8: Growth and Golgi Bodies

Last Week in Noble Research

By Courtney Leeper, Writer

Posted Apr. 10, 2017

From under the microscope, to the field, to the sky, the Noble Foundation approaches agricultural research from various angles.

Here's a quick look at a few of those angles from this week. Follow #everyNoblestory on Instagram and Twitter to see the latest updates.

  1 Monday, April 3

Spotting the difference in plant growth from the sky.

  2 Wednesday, April 5

Fields are in bloom.

  3 Friday, April 7

Cleaning up with a little controlled burn.

Doing some spring cleaning around the farms today. #firetruck #controlledburn #landstewardship #everynoblestory

  4 Friday, April 7

Developing grazing-tolerant alfalfa for the Southern Great Plains.

  5 Friday, April 7

Seeing the Golgi apparatus in action.

The Golgi apparatus first identified by the Italian #scientist Camillo Golgi is a major component of the cell's internal system of membranes (aka endomembrane system). Here, #proteins are packaged and sorted prior to their delivery to their correct cellular destination. Shown in this #confocal #microscope #video are #Golgi bodies labeled with the mCherry fluorescent protein in living root cells. Plant cell biology #research by @noblefoundation #scientists aims to understand how plant proteins are sorted and eventually delivered to their correct destination within and outside the cell. They expect that such knowledge will be useful in generating better quality plant products. #cellbiology #timelapse #microscopy #plantbiology #rootresearch #roots #plantcell #plantscience #arabidopsis #celldance #cells #red #celldynamics #biology
