Low resistance junctions were demonstrated between cells in anthers from young buds of Lilium longiflorum Croft by standard electrophysiological techniques. Electrodes containing a dye were used to stain impaled cells for later histological identification. Electrical coupling is widespread; germinal cells are coupled to one another; coupling is also observed between somatic elements, and germinal and somatic cells are similarly interconnected. Cytoplasmic bridges are implicated in the first case; plasmodesmata are probably responsible for the interactions in the other two. Although the physiological role of the low resistance junctions shown here and present in embryonic animal tissues is unknown, the possible function of this form of intercellular communication in the development of the anther is discussed.
