Dear maize netters,

I'm trying to germinate maize pollen in vitro for RNA extraction.
Unfortunately, the majority of pollen burst within minutes of
application to the media. I'm using 300mg/L CaCl, 100mg/L Boric acid
with sucrose levels between 10 and 40 percent and either liquid or
solid (0.7 percent agarose) media. I would be grateful for any
suggestions on how I may overcome this problem,

Regards,

Dave
