Endopolyploidy is found throughout all tissues of Arabidopsis (Galbraith et al.
Developmentally regulated systemic endopolyploidy in succulents with small genomes.
For this reason, it is difficult to assign a functional significance to endopolyploidy in terms of cell differentiation; endopolyploidy may be a result of trichoblast differentiation rather than a controlling factor (Cutter & Feldman, 1970b).
These nuclei were assumed to possess the basal level of somatic nuclear DNA, whereas the larger nuclei were considered the result of endopolyploidy, a common phenomenon in crustacean tissues (Beaton 1988; Beaton and Hebert 1989).
