It has been known that macromolecular transport occur between phloem tissues of host- and parasitic plants. However, it is still unclear whether sieve elements are developed in haustoria. In this study, we demonstrated that phloem-conducting cells in haustoria of P. aegyptiaca are nucleated, without sieve plates, thus differ from sieve elements. Our results suggested that formation of plasmodesmata with large size exclusion limit is independent of enucleation and sieve plate formation. View this paper
