...James Doughty; Maha Aljabri; Rod J. Scott Understanding how seed size is regulated in angiosperms is a key goal for plant science as seed size is an important component of overall seed yield. Angiosperm seeds comprise three clearly defined components, i.e. the embryo, endosperm and seed coat, with...

... next to a supporting tissue called the endosperm. The embryo and the endosperm are protected by surrounding maternal tissues, the integuments, and the trinity of integuments, embryo and endosperm comprise the plant seed. For proper seed development, these three structures have to develop in a highly...

... that Arabidopsis seed's lipid breakdown occurs in two distinct tissues, the embryo and endosperm. The utilization of endospermic lipid reserves requires gluconeogenesis and transport of the resulting sugars to the germinating embryo. We discuss the potential of the Arabidopsis endosperm tissue as a...
