Each granular gland consists of numerous alveoli or secretory vesicles that are surrounded by connective tissue (Hostetler & Cannon 1974; Cannon & Hostetler 1976; Alvarez et al.

The 14-3-3 proteins were localized in the shak region, which coincides with the localization of H+-ATPase pumps, the nucleus, and the tip of the pollen tubes, where secretory vesicles are delivered to the plasma membrane.
Cell structures called secretory vesicles have been found all along the length of the fiber in the process of fusing to the cell membrane.
