Somatic p35S-CENH3-GFP centromere labeling detects endomitotic polyploidy. a-e Representative images of somatic nuclei expressing p35S-CENH3-GFP in young leaves of wild type a and colchicine-treated seedlings at seven days b and c and twenty days d and e after treatment. f and g Fluorescent images of p35S-CENH3-GFP localization in young developing petals in diploid wild type f and et2 g background. Note the ectopic presence of large endomitotic nuclei containing more than ten centromeric GFP signals in et2 petals. Scale bars, 10 μm
