|Abstract||Somatic polyploidization is recognized as a means to increase gene expression levels in highly active metabolic cells. The most common mechanisms are endoreplication, endomitosis and cell fusion. In animals and plants the nuclei of multinucleate cells are usually prevented from fusing. Here, we report that the nuclei from the syncytial cyst of the chalazal endosperm of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. are polyploid with some intermediate ploidy levels that cannot be attributed to endoreplication, suggesting nuclear fusion. Analysis of isolated nuclei, together with fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), revealed that nuclei from the chalazal endosperm are two or three times bigger than the nuclei from the peripheral endosperm and have a corresponding increase in ploidy. Together with the consistent observation of adjoined nuclei, we propose that nuclear fusion contributes, at least in part, to the process of polyploidization in the chalazal endosperm. Confocal analysis of intact seeds further suggested that free nuclei from the peripheral endosperm get incorporated into the chalazal cyst and likely participate in nuclear fusions.|
