WHAT DOES POLLEN TUBE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

pollen tube

Pollen tube

A pollen tube is part of the male gametophyte of seed plants. It acts as a conduit to transport the male gamete cells from the pollen grain, either from the stigma to the ovules at the base of the pistil, or directly through ovule tissue in some gymnosperms. In maize, this single cell can grow longer than 12 inches to traverse the length of the pistil. Pollen tubes were first discovered by Giovanni Battista Amici.

Definition of pollen tube in the English dictionary

The definition of pollen tube in the dictionary is a hollow tubular outgrowth that develops from a pollen grain after pollination, grows down the style to the ovule, and conveys male gametes to the egg cell.
