The pattern of sterol distribution in the tobacco plant was characterized by a linear increase from the base to the apex. Within a leaf, the sterol distribution was also linear with increasing levels from the basal section to the tip of a leaf.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
