(6) The method was used to analyze the free amino acid pool in carnation petals.
(7) The highest glucosyltransferase activity was found in petals of opening flowers of young plants.
(8) When a variety of shotguns were tested, it was found that one weapon with a very short barrel and cylinder bore did not exhibit petal spread until a range of 30 cm was reached.
(9) Two petal mRNA classes were identified that are present at elevated levels relative to other organs.
(10) This study explores the extent of mild to significant malnutrition in the squatter settlement of Kampung Baiduri located adjacent to an industrial area in Petaling Jaya.
(11) 3R-[2-(14)C]Mevalonate was incorporated into geranyl and neryl beta-d-glucosides in petals of Rosa dilecta in up to 10.6% yield, and the terpenoid part was specifically and equivalently labelled in the moieties derived from isopentenyl pyrophosphate and 3,3-dimethylallyl pyrophosphate.

(18) In the families of flowering plants in which these organs occur, they are patterned with the sepals in the outermost whorl or whorls of the flower, with the petals next closest to the center, the stamens even closer to the center, and the carpels central.
(19) The programmed senescence of carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L.) petals requires active gene expression and is associated with the expression of several senescence-related mRNAs.
(20) In petunia, the gene Po regulates the expression of CHI in anthers: PoPo petunia lines contain CHI enzyme activity in petals and anthers, whereas popo lines contain the CHI enzyme only in petals but not in anthers.
