EFFECT OF ENDOSPERM TYPE ON TEXTURE AND IN VITRO STARCH DIGESTIBILITY OF MAIZE TORTILLAS.
Tortilla is the main staple of Mexico and it is made using diverse maize varieties, which have different endosperm types. Three maize varieties with vitreous, intermediate and floury endosperms were used. Texture and starch ...
Endosperm-preferred expression of maize genes as revealed by transcriptome-wide analysis of expressed sequence tags
Transcriptome analysis of seed development in apomictic Paspalum notatum
The seed developmental process involves various tissues with several ploidy levels and different genetic origins. Therefore, its characterisation at the transcriptome level is certainly a challenge. The hypothesis of ...
Analogous reserve distribution and tissue characteristics in quinoa and grass seeds suggest convergent evolution
Quinoa seeds are highly nutritious due to the quality of their proteins and lipids and the wide range of minerals and vitamins they store. Three compartments can be distinguished within the mature seed: embryo, endosperm, ...
Expression studies in the embryo and in the micropylar endosperm of germinating coffee (Coffea arabica cv. Rubi) seeds
Germination of coffee (Coffea arabica L.) seed is slow and uneven. Its germination is the net result of events that occur simultaneously in the embryo and endosperm and which are controlled by abscisic acid (ABA). The aim ...
Nutritionally induced changes in endosperm of shrunken-1 and brittle-2 maize kernels grown in vitro
(Crop Science Soc Amer, 1996-07-01)
Although mineral nutrition affects maize (Zea mays L.) yield by controlling starch deposition in kernels, the mechanisms involved are largely unknown. Our objectives were to examine this relationship by nutritionally and ...
Caracterização dos padrões protéicos do endosperma do milho e sua relação com a estrutura física do grão.
(Ciência e Agrotecnologia, Lavras, v. 24, n. 3, p. 567-575, 2000., 2012)
Seed development in Malpighiaceae species with an emphasis on the relationships between nutritive tissues
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-01-01)
Malpighiaceae ovules have a well-developed nucellus; previous observations indicate that during seed development, the endosperm does not proliferate, thus, remaining scarce. This study aimed at identifying the nutritive ...
Transcription factor profiling identifies an aleurone-preferred NAC family member involved in maize seed development
