Purification of gibberellic acid-induced lysosomes from wheat aleurone cells. (1/6126)

Using isopycnic density gradient centrifugation, lysosomes were concentrated in a single region of a sucrose-Ficoll gradient (p = 1-10 g cm-3), well separated from most other cell organelles. Gibberellic acid-induced lysosomes were found to be rich in alpha-amylase and protease but not ribonuclease. The lysosomal band also contained a majority of the NADH2-cytochrome c reductase, a marker enzyme for endoplasmic reticulum, found in the gradient. Examination of electron micrographs revealed that a purified band of lyosomes contained at least 3 vesicle types, ranging in size from 0-1 to 0-5 mum. The significance of these findings to proposed mechanisms of action of gibberellic acid is discussed.  (+info)

Male gametic cell-specific gene expression in flowering plants. (2/6126)

The role of the male gamete-the sperm cell-in the process of fertilization is to recognize, adhere to, and fuse with the female gamete. These highly specialized functions are expected to be controlled by activation of a unique set of genes. However, male gametic cells traditionally have been regarded as transcriptionally quiescent because of highly condensed chromatin and a very reduced amount of cytoplasm. Here, we provide evidence for male gamete-specific gene expression in flowering plants. We identified and characterized a gene, LGC1, which was shown to be expressed exclusively in the male gametic cells. The gene product of LGC1 was localized at the surface of male gametic cells, suggesting a possible role in sperm-egg interactions. These findings represent an important step toward defining the molecular mechanisms of male gamete development and the cellular processes involved in fertilization of flowering plants.  (+info)

A single limit dextrinase gene is expressed both in the developing endosperm and in germinated grains of barley. (3/6126)

The single gene encoding limit dextrinase (pullulan 6-glucanohydrolase; EC in barley (Hordeum vulgare) has 26 introns that range in size from 93 to 822 base pairs. The mature polypeptide encoded by the gene has 884 amino acid residues and a calculated molecular mass of 97,417 D. Limit dextrinase mRNA is abundant in gibberellic acid-treated aleurone layers and in germinated grain. Gibberellic acid response elements were found in the promoter region of the gene. These observations suggest that the enzyme participates in starch hydrolysis during endosperm mobilization in germinated grain. The mRNA encoding the enzyme is present at lower levels in the developing endosperm of immature grain, a location consistent with a role for limit dextrinase in starch synthesis. Enzyme activity was also detected in developing grain. The limit dextrinase has a presequence typical of transit peptides that target nascent polypeptides to amyloplasts, but this would not be expected to direct secretion of the mature enzyme from aleurone cells in germinated grain. It remains to be discovered how the enzyme is released from the aleurone and whether another enzyme, possibly of the isoamylase group, might be equally important for starch hydrolysis in germinated grain.  (+info)

Health aspects of partially defatted flaxseed, including effects on serum lipids, oxidative measures, and ex vivo androgen and progestin activity: a controlled crossover trial. (4/6126)

BACKGROUND: Currently there is considerable interest in the potential health benefits of oil seeds, such as soy and flaxseed, especially in relation to cardiovascular disease and cancer. OBJECTIVE: We therefore evaluated health aspects of partially defatted flaxseed in relation to serum lipids, indicators of oxidative stress, and ex vivo sex hormone activities. DESIGN: Twenty-nine hyperlipidemic subjects (22 men and 7 postmenopausal women) completed two 3-wk treatment periods in a randomized, crossover trial. Subjects were given muffins that contributed approximately 20 g fiber/d from either flaxseed (approximately 50 g partially defatted flaxseed/d) or wheat bran (control) while they consumed self-selected National Cholesterol Education Program Step II diets. Both muffins had similar macronutrient profiles. Treatment phases were separated by > or = 2 wk. RESULTS: Partially defatted flaxseed reduced total cholesterol (4.6+/-1.2%; P = 0.001), LDL cholesterol (7.6+/-1.8%; P < 0.001), apolipoprotein B (5.4+/-1.4%; P = 0.001), and apolipoprotein A-I (5.8+/-1.9%; P = 0.005), but had no effect on serum lipoprotein ratios at week 3 compared with the control. There were no significant effects on serum HDL cholesterol, serum protein carbonyl content, or ex vivo androgen or progestin activity after either treatment. Unexpectedly, serum protein thiol groups were significantly lower (10.8+/-3.6%; P = 0.007) at week 3 after the flaxseed treatment than after the control, suggesting increased oxidation. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that partially defatted flaxseed is effective in lowering LDL cholesterol. No effects on lipoprotein ratios, ex vivo serum androgen or progestin activity, or protein carbonyl content were observed. The significance of increased oxidation of protein thiol groups with flaxseed consumption requires further investigation.  (+info)

Human metabolism of mammalian lignan precursors in raw and processed flaxseed. (5/6126)

BACKGROUND: The mammalian lignans enterolactone and enterodiol are produced in the colon by the action of bacteria on the plant precursor secoisolariciresinol diglycoside, which is found in high concentrations in flaxseed. OBJECTIVE: Two experiments were conducted to determine 1) whether there is a dose response in urinary lignan excretion with increasing flaxseed intake, 2) whether flaxseed processing affects lignan excretion, 3) peak plasma lignan concentrations, and 4) plasma lignan concentrations after chronic supplementation. DESIGN: Nine healthy young women supplemented their diets with 5, 15, or 25 g raw or 25 g processed (muffin or bread) flaxseed for 7 d during the follicular phase of their menstrual cycles. Twenty-four-hour urine samples were collected at baseline and on the final day of supplementation. As an adjunct to the 25-g-flaxseed arm, subjects consumed the supplement for an additional day and blood and urine samples were collected at specific intervals. All blood and urine samples were analyzed for enterolactone and enterodiol by gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy. RESULTS: A dose-dependent urinary lignan response to raw flaxseed was observed (r = 0.72, P < 0.001). The processing of flaxseed as a muffin or bread did not affect the quantity of lignan excretion. Plasma lignan concentrations were greater (P < or = 0.05) than baseline by 9 h after flaxseed ingestion (29.35+/-3.69 and 51.75+/-7.49 nmol/L, respectively). The total plasma area under the curve was higher on the eighth than on the first day (1840.15+/-343.02 and 1027.15+/-95.71 nmol x h/L, respectively). CONCLUSION: Mammalian lignan production from flaxseed precursors is dependent on time and dose but not on processing.  (+info)

Plant cell-directed control of virion sense gene expression in wheat dwarf virus. (6/6126)

We have used particle bombardment (biolistics) to deliver replication-competent wheat dwarf virus (WDV)-based constructs, carrying reporter gene sequences fused to the virion sense promoter (Pv) or the CaMV 35S promoter, to suspension culture cells and immature zygotic embryos of wheat. While the replication of WDV double-stranded DNA forms (replicons) was equivalent between wheat suspension culture cells and embryos, GUS reporter gene activity was 20-40 times higher in the embryo cultures. Maximum expression of WDV replicons occurred in the embryonic axis tissue of wheat embryos but their expression in suspension cells was compromised, compared with transiently maintained input plasmid DNA containing the same sequences. From these studies, we propose that WDV replicons are subject to a host cell-controlled competency for virion sense transcription. The term competency is used to distinguish between the phenomenon described here and control of gene expression by specific transcription factors. Control of competency is independent of Pv, the replacement 35S promoter and of the complementary sense control of virion sense expression involving specific sequences in Pv. We propose that factors controlling the competency for replicon expression may be present in cells which, as well as maintaining high rates of DNA synthesis, are totipotent. Cell type control of active chromatin, methylation of specific sequences in WDV minichromosomes and/or interaction of virus-encoded proteins with specific host factors are considered as possible mechanisms.  (+info)

Reduction of serum cholesterol and hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis in rabbits by secoisolariciresinol diglucoside isolated from flaxseed. (7/6126)

BACKGROUND: Secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) is a plant lignan isolated from flaxseed. Lignans are platelet-activating factor-receptor antagonists that would inhibit the production of oxygen radicals by polymorphonuclear leukocytes. SDG is an antioxidant. Antioxidants studied thus far are known to reduce hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of SDG on various blood lipid and aortic tissue oxidative stress parameters and on the development of atherosclerosis in rabbits fed a high-cholesterol diet. METHODS AND RESULTS: Rabbits were assigned to 4 groups: group 1, control; group 2, SDG control (15 mg. kg body wt-1. d-1 PO); group 3, 1% cholesterol diet; and group 4, same as group 3 but with added SDG (15 mg. kg body wt-1. d-1 PO). Blood samples were collected before (time 0) and after 4 and 8 weeks of experimental diets for measurement of serum triglycerides, total cholesterol (TC), and LDL, HDL, and VLDL cholesterol (LDL-C, HDL-C, and VLDL-C). The aorta was removed at the end of the protocol for assessment of atherosclerotic plaques; malondialdehyde, an aortic tissue lipid peroxidation product; and aortic tissue chemiluminescence, a marker for antioxidant reserve. Serum TC, LDL-C, and the ratios LDL-C/HDL-C and TC/HDL-C increased in groups 3 and 4 compared with time 0, the increase being smaller in group 4 than in group 3. Serum HDL-C decreased in group 3 and increased in group 4 compared with time 0, but changes were lower in group 3 than in group 4. SDG reduced TC and LDL-C by 33% and 35%, respectively, at week 8 but increased HDL-C significantly, by>140%, as early as week 4. It also decreased TC/LDL-C and LDL-C/HDL-C ratios by approximately 64%. There was an increase in aortic malondialdehyde and chemiluminescence in group 3, and they were lower in group 4 than in group 3. SDG reduced hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis by 73%. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that SDG reduced hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis and that this effect was associated with a decrease in serum cholesterol, LDL-C, and lipid peroxidation product and an increase in HDL-C and antioxidant reserve.  (+info)

Small angle X-ray scattering of wheat seed-storage proteins: alpha-, gamma- and omega-gliadins and the high molecular weight (HMW) subunits of glutenin. (8/6126)

Small angle X-ray scattering in solution was performed on seed-storage proteins from wheat. Three different groups of gliadins (alpha-, gamma- and omega-) and a high molecular weight (HMW) subunit of glutenin (1Bx20) were studied to determine molecular size parameters. All the gliadins could be modelled as prolate ellipsoids with extended conformations. The HMW subunit existed as a highly extended rod-like particle in solution with a length of about 69 nm and a diameter of about 6.4 nm. Specific aggregation effects were observed which may reflect mechanisms of self-assembly that contribute to the unique viscoelastic properties of wheat dough.  (+info)

Production of high quality seeds is of fundamental importance for successful crop production. However, knowledge of the effects of increased temperature resulting from global warming on seed quality of alpine species is limited. We investigated the effect of maternal environment on seed quality of three cultivars of the leguminous forage species Vicia sativa, giving particular attention to temperature. Plants of each cultivar were grown at 1700 and 3000 m a.s.l., and mass, germination, electrical conductivity (EC) of leakage and longevity were determined for mature seeds. Seeds of all three cultivars produced at the low elevation had a significantly lower mass and longevity but higher EC of leachate than those produced at the high elevation, suggesting that increased temperatures decreased seed quality. However, seed viability did not differ between elevations. The effects of maternal environment on seed germination strongly depended on cultivar and germination temperature. At 10 and 15°C, seeds of

Seed size did not affect the final stand and the grain yield of bean cultivars but modified yield components in distinct ways (table 4). Plants originating from large seed had lower number of seeds per pod, particularly in cultivars Iraí and Puebla 152, but they had higher 100-seed mass, particularly in cultivars Iraí, Manteigão and Puebla 152 (table 4). Commercial cultivars with high genetic uniformity were employed in this experiment, thus seed size selection prior to sowing was of a phenotypical nature, and larger grains produced by sowing large seed can not be due to a genetic separation of lines with different seed sizes within the same cultivar. Large seed increased the number of pods per plant for cultivar Puebla 152 but reduced this yield component for Guapo Brilhante. Cultivars Iraí, Carioca and Guapo Brilhante had a higher harvest index when originating from small seed (table 4). Actually, plants originating from large seed had greater stem mass at maturity (57 g.m-2, as compared ...
Studies on seed germination and seedling growth of Uapaca kirkiana derived from different propagules have been limited. The objectives were to assess variations in fruit and seed weight, germination ability of seed from grafts, marcots and natural forest stand. It was also to assess the effects of fruit and seed size, and collection time on seed germination. Trees from natural forest stand were significantly (P < 0.0001) taller and had thicker stem diameters at breast height than the rest. Fruit diameters, seed germination, seedling height, root collar diameter, leaf number and seedling survival significantly (P < 0.0001) varied with propagule type. Significantly (P = 0.0275) large seed was obtained from asexual propagules (grafts and marcots) in November, while in December large seed was from natural forest stand. Germination of seed derived from grafts was rapid and consistent. Seedlings derived from asexual propagules were superior in height, survival and root and leaf number. It can be ...

Seed quality and seedling establishment are the most important factors affecting successful crop development. They depend on the genetic background and are acquired during seed maturation and therefor, affected by the maternal environment under which the seeds develop. There is little knowledge about the genetic and environmental factors that affect seed quality and seedling establishment. The aim of this study is to identify the loci and possible molecular mechanisms involved in acquisition of seed quality and how these are controlled by adverse maternal conditions. For this, we used a tomato recombinant inbred line (RIL) population consisting of 100 lines which were grown under two different nutritional environmental conditions, high phosphate and low nitrate. Most of the seed germination traits such as maximum germination percentage (Gmax), germination rate (t50) and uniformity (U8416) showed ample variation between genotypes and under different germination conditions. This phenotypic ...
Changes in seed dormancy were selected during the domestication of crop plants from wild-plant species, because some features of dormancy that provide ecological advantages presented agronomic disadvantages within a farmed system. Seed dormancy varies widely among seed batches, even for seeds of the same genotype, indicating large environmental influences. For genetic studies, it is essential to obtain such quantitative data on seed material without the effects of variation in environmental conditions, including the maternal growing and seed storage conditions. The genetics of seed dormancy is as predicted on Mathers theory of genetical architecture for a character that has been subject to strong directional selection. Many studies on the genetics of seed dormancy regulation have concluded that dormancy is a quantitative trait controlled by multiple loci that affect different seed tissues, and often different aspects of seed physiology. Therefore, in this study discos on some research on seed dormancy
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 each having a distinct genetic composition which exerts different influences on seed development. Complex cross-talk and integration of signals from these different regions of the seed together determine its final size. The present review considers some of the major regulators of seed size, with a particular emphasis on the role of the seed coat in modulating endosperm proliferation and cellularization. The innermost layer of the seed coat, the endothelium, synthesizes flavonoids which are held to provide a defensive function against microbes, act as feeding deterrents, provide UV protection and to have a role in seed dormancy. A growing body of data suggests that flavonoids may also play a fundamental role in regulating communication between ...

Common bean is the most widely grown and consumed grain legume in Kenya. However, its contribution to nutrition and income has not been fully felt by smallholder farmers in western Kenya due to low yields. Good quality seed, if used with complementary practices can increase bean productivity. This study was conducted in Bondo sub-County to determine the methods used by farmers in seed quality control; factors affecting the choice preferences for informal bean seed sources; and the structure and contribution of social networks in seed quality control. Primary data were collected from 100 respondents through scheduled interviews using structured questionnaires. Excel, SPSS, STATA and UCINET computer packages were used to run data. A multinomial logit model was used to analyse the effects of socio-economic characteristics on the choice of seed sources. Descriptive statistics were used to illustrate the seed quality control methods. The nature of social networks was determined using measures of ...
Limited information is available on the effects of foliar boron (B) application on soybean seed composition. The objective of this research was to investigate the effects of foliar B on seed composition (protein, oil, fatty acids, and sugars). Our hypothesis was that since B is involved in nitrogen and carbon metabolism, it may impact seed composition. A repeated greenhouse experiment was conducted where half of the soybean plants was exposed to water stress (WS) and the other half was well-watered. Foliar boron (FB) in the form of boric acid was applied twice at a rate of 1.1 kg ha−1. The first application was during flowering stage, and the second application was during seed-fill stage. Treatments were water stressed plants with no FB (WS-B); water stressed plants with FB (WS+B); watered plants without FB (W-B), and watered plants with FB (W+B). The treatment W-B was used as a control. Comparing with WS-B plants, B concentration was the highest in leaves and seed of W+B plants (84% increase in
In soybean seed coats the accumulation of the hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein extensin is regulated in a developmental and tissue-specific manner. The time course of appearance of extensin during seed development was studied by Western blot analysis and by immunogold-silver localization. Using these techniques extensin was first detected at 16-18 d after anthesis, increasing during development to high levels at 24 d after anthesis. Immunogold-silver localization of extensin in the seed coat showed marked deposition of the glycoprotein in the walls of palisade epidermal cells and hourglass cells. The immunolocalization of extensin in developing soybean seeds was also made by a new technique--tissue printing on nitrocellulose paper. It was found that extensin is primarily localized in the seed coat, hilum, and vascular elements of the seed. ...

To test further whether seed stiffness can be attributed to the characteristics of the developing endosperm, we investigated the stiffness of populations of seeds from plants heterozygous for fertilization independent seed 2-5 (fis2-5) (Weinhofer et al., 2010). FIS2 encodes an endosperm-specific component of the endosperm growth-restricting POLYCOMB REPRESSIVE COMPLEX2 (PRC2). The FIS2 gene is paternally imprinted and thus only expressed from the maternal genome during early endosperm development. Seeds inheriting a mutant maternal copy of FIS2 in the zygotic compartment (50% of seeds in the siliques of self-fertilised FIS2/fis2-5 heterozygotes) arrest when embryos are at the early heart stage of development (Luo et al., 2000). Arrested seeds have been reported to be larger than their siblings, and show a total lack of endosperm cellularisation (Hehenberger et al., 2012; Luo et al., 2000). Recently, it was shown that arresting seeds maintain higher hexose levels than their siblings, and a ...
Plant seeds are complex organs in which maternal tissues, embryo and endosperm, follow distinct but coordinated developmental programs. Some morphogenetic and metabolic processes are exclusively associated with seed development. The goal of this study was to explore the feasibility of incorporating the available online bioinformatics databases to discover Arabidopsis genes specifically expressed in certain organs, in our case immature seeds. A total of 11,032 EST sequences obtained from isolated immature seeds were used as the initial dataset (178 of them newly described here). A pilot study was performed using EST virtual subtraction followed by microarray data analysis, using the Genevestigator tool. These techniques led to the identification of 49 immature seed-specific genes. The findings were validated by RT-PCR analysis and in situ hybridization. We conclude that the combined in silico data analysis is an effective data mining strategy for the identification of tissue-specific gene expression.
In some cases, harvesting seeds is as easy as scooping out the inside of your fruits and veggies before you eat them. However, some plants arent mature when theyre picked and eaten, meaning youll have to sacrifice a few, leaving them in the ground or on the vine in order to collect seeds. Greens generally produce seed after the plant has flowered, and bean and pea seeds actually dry best if pods are left on the plant. The Old Farmers Almanacs seed-saving guide walks through how to harvest different types of plants as well as how to prepare seeds for storage. Make sure youre selecting seeds from healthy plants only. Seeds can carry on bacteria and disease, and planting infected seeds will set you up to fail right from the start. If you do suspect contamination, there are a few methods for seed cleaning - but your best bet is to keep healthy ones to begin with. Once youve harvested your seeds, youll want to dry them for storage. Some seeds, like tomatoes and cucumbers, have to be fermented ...

Heat treatment is widely used to break dormancy for seed germination and phytohormones could be deeply involved. However, effect of heat treatment on phytohormone related genes/proteins/metabolites and possible relationship with dormancy release remains unclear in oil palm. In this study, oil palm seeds were heat-treated at 39 °C for 60 days according to the method for commercial production. The embryos of seeds during heat treatment (0 d, 15 d, 30 d, 45 d and 60 d) and of germinated seeds (70 d and 75 d) were selected to discover the mechanisms involved in oil palm seed germination. RNA-seq and iTRAQ were applied to investigate DEGs and DEPs related to seed germination; qPCR and western blot were used as validation accordingly; endogenous phytohormones were determined by LC-MS/MS and exogenous phytohormones were also applied to validate their effects on seed germination. RNA-seq results showed that plant hormone signal transduction was one of the most important pathways and eight phytohormones
In the last three decades, the majority of the worlds family-owned seed companies have been bought out by multinationals such as the Monsanto and Novartis corporations. These companies are not interested in creating sustainable food systems and communities. They are busy replacing carefully bred strains of vegetables and flowers with their own hybrids and patented varieties. Hybrids dont produce viable seed, and the seed from patented varieties cannot legally be collected and used. Instead, the seeds must be bought fresh each year, forcing gardeners and farmers to purchase from corporate seed sources annually.. Genetic engineering enables life science corporations to control plant traits by programming the seeds. Monsantos infamous implementation of trait-control technology is often referred to as the Terminator seed. Terminator seeds yield plants that produce no viable seed of ther own. Trait-controlled plants that breed with traditional varieties may pass on engineered traits to the ...
Lincoln University High quality seed is essential for the establishment of a good crop. New Zealand grown brassica seeds usually have high germination but often have variable seed vigour. The latter can result in poor crop establishment and storability. High temperature stress during seed development is known to reduce seed vigour in some species, but whether temperature stress is responsible for seed vigour loss in brassica species was not known. The effects of high temperature during seed development on forage rape (Brassica napus) seed quality were determined by assessing seed mass, germination and vigour using a sowing date trial and field and controlled environment experiments. A time of sowing trial was conducted in the 2011-12 season. A late flowering forage rape cultivar Greenland was sown on 25 March and 13 April, 2011 with sowings replicated four times in a randomized complete block design. Seed quality was assessed at three seed development stages (determined by seed moisture ...
Physiological and biochemical changes occur at different viability levels of pepper seeds. For this purpose 80, 60, 40, and 20% viability levels were obtained by controlled deterioration treatments in the seeds of 3 pepper cultivars, Demre Sivri, Kandil Dolma, and Yalova Carliston. Subsequently, mean germination time (MGT), electrical conductivity (EC), catalase (CAT), peroxidase (POX), superoxide dismutase (SOD), total lipid rate (TLR) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were measured at these viability levels. Depending on ageing, MGT, EC, and MDA contents increased in the seeds of each cultivar. The increases in MGT, EC, and MDA contents were more evident when seed viability decreased to a 60% level. Moreover, a negative correlation was found between the loss of seed viability and MGT, MDA, and EC. However, there was a positive correlation between loss of seed viability and CAT, SOD, POX, and TLR in all cultivars. Therefore, it was possible to predict the germination rate and mean germination ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Free and conjugated lndole-3-acetic acid in developing bean seeds. AU - Bialek, Krystyna. AU - Cohen, Jerry D.. PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - The changes in conjugated indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) levels compared to the levels of free IAA have been analyzed during the development of bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) seed using quantitative mass spectrometry. Free and ester-linked IAA levels are both relatively high in the early stages of seed development but drop during seed maturation. Concomitantly, the amide-linked IAA becomes the major form of IAA present as the seed matures. In fully mature seed, amide IAA accounts for 80% of the total IAA. The total IAA pool in the seed is maintained at approximately the same level (150-170 nanograms/seed) once the level of free IAA has attained its maximum. Thus, the amount of amide IAA conjugates that accumulate in mature seed is closely related to the amounts of free and ester-linked IAA that disappeared from the rapidly growing seed. Analysis of ...
EN] Seed longevity is important to preserve crops and wild plants and it is limited by progressive cellular damage (aging) during storage. The induction of cellular stress defenses and the formation of the seed coat are crucial protecting events during seed development, a process mediated in Arabidopsis thaliana by the transcription factors LEC1, LEC2, FUS3 and the abscisic acid-activated ABI3. In order to identify novel determinants of seed longevity we have screened an activation-tagging mutant collection of Arabidopsis and isolated a dominant mutant with increased seed longevity under both natural and accelerated aging conditions. Molecular characterization indicates that the mutant phenotype is caused by over-expression of the At2g26130 gene encoding a RING-type zinc finger putative ubiquitin ligase. Loss of function of this gene in a T-DNA insertion mutant resulted in decreased seed longevity. We named this important gene for seed longevity RSL1 (from Ring finger of Seed Longevity1) and we ...
The E2F transcription factors and the RETINOBLASTOMA RELATED (RBR) repressor protein are principal regulators coordinating cell proliferation with differentiation, but their role during seed development is little understood. We show that in the fully developed embryos, cell number was not affected either in single or double mutants for the activator-type E2FA and E2FB Accordingly, these E2Fs are only partially required for the expression of cell cycle genes. In contrast, the expression of key seed maturation genes; LEAFY COTYLEDON 1-2 (LEC1-2), ABSCISIC ACID INSENSITIVE 3 (ABI3), FUSCA 3 (FUS3) and WRINKLED 1 (WRI1) are upregulated in the e2fab double mutant embryo. In accordance, E2FA directly regulates LEC2, and mutation at the consensus E2F-binding site in LEC2 promoter de-represses its activity during the proliferative stage of seed development. Additionally, the major seed storage reserve proteins, 12S globulin and 2S albumin became prematurely accumulated at the proliferating phase of seed ...

All seed used in transplant production, as well as any transplants brought into the greenhouse should be certified clean or disease-free. Important diseases such as Bacterial leaf spot of tomato and pepper can cause major problems in transplant production if introduced in the greenhouse. Bacterial leaf spot of tomato and pepper can be seed-borne and infested seed can be a major source of inoculum in the greenhouse and cause problems in the field later in the growing season.. As a rule for any crop, any non-certified or untreated seed should be treated, if applicable, with a Clorox treatment, or hot-water seed treatment, or dusted to help minimize bacterial or damping-off diseases. Organic and conventional tomato growers who grow a significant number of heirloom tomatoes should consider using the hot water seed treatment to help reduce the chances for bacterial problems..

The influence of seed maturity, seed storage and germination pre-treatments on seed germination of cleome (Cleome gynandra L.) were investigated. Seed maturation studies showed that capsules harvested at 18 days after anthesis possessed the highest dry weight with 19.2% moisture and 1% germination. Development of fresh-ungerminated seed was observed with increasing maturity of fruit, suggesting that cleome exhibited forms of seed dormancy. Storing mature seed at 15°C and at room temperature for 5 months showed that seed dormancy was broken after 3 months under both storage regimes. When mature seeds were subjected to different treatments including various levels of GA3, KNO3, leaching, pre-chilling, soaking and pre-heating at different temperatures, it was found that pre-heating at 40°C for period of 1-5 days was the most effective method in breaking dormancy in cleome ...

The sunflower seed is the fruit of the sunflower (Helianthus annuus). There are three types of commonly used sunflower seeds: linoleic (most common), high oleic, and NuSun developed for sunflower oil. Each variety has its own unique levels of monounsaturated, saturated, and polyunsaturated fats. The information in this article refers mainly to the linoleic variety. For commercial purposes, sunflower seeds are usually classified by the pattern on their husks. If the husk is solid black, the seeds are called black oil sunflower seeds. The crops may be referred to as oilseed sunflower crops. These seeds are usually pressed to extract their oil. Striped sunflower seeds are primarily used for food; as a result, they may be called confectionery sunflower seeds. The term sunflower seed is actually a misnomer when applied to the seed in its pericarp (hull). Botanically speaking, it is a cypsela. When dehulled, the edible remainder is called the sunflower kernel or heart. In 2014, global production of ...
The low seed vigor and poor field emergence are main factors that restricting the extension of sweet corn in China. Spermidine (Spd) plays an important role in plant growth and development, but little is known about the effect of Spd on sweet corn seed germination. Therefore the effect of exogenous Spd on seed germination and physiological and biochemical changes during seed imbibition of Xiantian No.5 were investigated in this study. Spd soaking treatment not only improved seed germination percentage but also significantly enhanced seed vigor which was indicated by higher germination index, vigor index, shoot heights and dry weights of shoot and root compared with the control; while exogenous CHA, the biosynthesis inhibitor of Spd, significantly inhibited seed germination and declined seed vigor. Spd application significantly increased endogenous Spd, gibberellins and ethylene contents and simultaneously reduced ABA concentration in embryos during seed imbibition. In addition, the effects of exogenous

This year wasnt excellent for increasing significantly of something in our garden. When the planted seeds mature, breaking the plant will return some Sunflower Seeds. Sunflower seeds are well-known for each their rich flavor and in depth nutrient profile. Originating in Mesopotamia, the flax plant has been known because the Stone Age and the overall health benefits of flaxseeds, a lot more frequently known as linseeds, have been widely praised in ancient Greece and Rome. Heres a collection of recipes from my recent sunflower seed food exploration: a bread produced with sunflower seed flour a lacto fermented seed cheese a soaked sunflower seed spread, and a crunchy roasted spicy sunflower snack. Moreover, since sunflower seeds have a quite high oil content, it is frequent for them to be used as the base for processed polyunsaturated oils. Further to its high nutritional worth, sunflower seed also gives a valuable alternative to peanuts or tree-nuts. It outshines other oils for industrial use by ...
The economic impact of seedborne bacterial diseases on rice production provides a major motivation for research on seed health. This paper reports on the endophytic growth of a rifampicin-marked strain of the seedborne rice pathogen Pseudomonas fuscovaginae. The bacterium was found in most tested seeds indicating that, even without visible discolouration, seed transmission is possible. Crushed discoloured seeds contained more bacterial cells than did non-crushed discoloured seeds. These bacteria were released during seed soaking, contaminating clean seed and lowering seed germination. Cells of a rifampicin-resistant strain of P. fuscovaginae, which had been inoculated onto rice seeds, were subsequently recovered from different growth stages and from different rice tissues, thereby indicating endophytic colonization. These results have implications for seedling establishment, as symptomless seeds do not assure disease-free seeds, and the presence of seedborne bacteria results in poor germination ...
Oil crop seeds are important sources of fatty acids (FAs) and proteins for human and animal nutrition as well as for non-dietary uses [1]. As a major goal of oil crop seed research, studies focusing on engineering seeds with enhanced oil quantity and quality has prompted efforts to better understand the processes involved in seed metabolism, especially in the accumulation of storage products [2]. There are four major oil crops with different oil content in seeds: rapeseed (Brassica napus), soybean (Glycine max), sesame (Sesamum indicum) and peanut (Arachis hypogaea). Accumulation levels of seed storage compounds, such as triacylglycerol (TAG), proteins and carbohydrates, show significant species-specific variations. Sesame and peanut have heterotrophic oilseeds (non-green oilseeds) that contain up to 60% FAs of dry seed, whereas soybean and rapeseed have autotrophic oilseeds (green seeds) that contain up to 20% and 40% FAs of dry seed, respectively [3]. Although non-green seeds of sesame and ...
CARVALHO, Tereza Cristina de; KRZYZANOWSKI, Francisco Carlos; OHLSON, Osvaldo de Castro and PANOBIANCO, Maristela. Tetrazolium test adjustment for wheat seeds. J. Seed Sci. [online]. 2013, vol.35, n.3, pp.361-367. ISSN 2317-1537. The assessment of the germination test in wheat seeds varies from 4 to 15 days, because the species normally presents dormancy in freshly harvested seeds. The tetrazolium test can characterize seed viability in less than 24 hours including lots with dormancy seeds. The objective of this study was to develop a practical and efficient procedure for evaluating the viability of wheat seeds using the tetrazolium test. Five seed lots of the BRS 208 cultivar were used, where the following were tested: a) pre-conditioning between moist paper towels or direct immersion in water for 18 hours, at 20 °C; b) longitudinal section of the embryo and the endosperm; c) coloration on paper or by immersion for 2 and 3 hours, at 30 and 40 ...

Weeds are a major pest problem for Goldenmane Tickseed. Weeds can reduce seed yield by competing with the wildflower for water and nutrients. However, even if weed competition seems minimal and the wildflower crop is thriving, use cultural practices that will reduce the amount of weed seed that could be harvested with the crop seed. Preventing weed seed from getting into the wildflower seed harvest is usually easier than cleaning out the weed seeds after the harvest. In addition, marketing Goldenmane Tickseed seed will be difficult or impossible if too many weed seeds are mixed with the wildflower seed. Eliminate weeds that grow into the canopy of the crop to prevent weed seed from being harvested along with the wildflower seed. Be especially diligent about eradicating noxious weed species (1) from the Goldenmane Tickseed planting. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) prohibits the inclusion of noxious weed seed in any seed sold in Florida.. If chemical weed ...
received data from the Poison Information Centres on approx. 30 concrete cases with poisoning symptoms with varying degrees of severity caused by bitter lupin seeds. In addition to this, reports of cases of poisoning through bitter lupin seeds with sometimes severe outcomes were published in international literature. Most of these cases were attributable to the inadequate debittering of the bitter lupin seeds in private kitchens.. If lupin seeds or products made from them have a bitter taste, this can be an indicator for the presence of lupin alkaloids, which are undesired from a health point of view. The bitter-tasting water in which lupin seeds were soaked should not be consumed under any circumstances either or used for the preparation of foods.. Foods containing lupin seeds are only rarely consumed in Germany at the moment. In a nationwide representative Consumer Survey on the Consumption of Lupin Seeds commissioned by the ...

Gore works at the Delta Research and Extension Center in Stoneville. He said researchers take core samples about 4 inches in diameter and 8 inches deep from farms across the Delta, wash them and count the rice water weevil larvae.. An infestation of one larva per core will result in about a 1 percent yield loss, Gore said. Typical infestations in the Delta range from 10 to 25 weevils per core in untreated fields, resulting in a 10 to 25 percent yield loss.. Gore said that seed treatments provide other benefits to rice producers, too.. Seed treatments provide good control against a whole complex of other rice pests, he said.

Iran is located in a hot and dry region. As a result of low precipitation and a vast area of salty and alkali soil, osmotic pressure is very high in most parts of the country (i.e., osmotic potential is more negative). In the present study four levels of osmotic pressure (-0.25, -0.35, -0.45, -0.50 MPa) were created artificially, by polyethylene glycol (PEG) and treatment of three seed types, namely, barley, corn and canola. The study aimed at finding the seeds with better germination potential under high osmotic pressure. The seeds germination potential under different levels of osmotic pressure was also investigated. The experiment was conducted with four replications at the Laboratory of Faculty of Agriculture, Islamic Azad University, Saveh Branch, in a completely randomized design. Parameters under study were germination rate and germination percentage. Results showed that germination rate was not affected by osmoticpotential. Considering germination percentage, only osmotic potential of -0.50
The effect of delayed harvest on the occurrence and incidence of seed-borne Fusarium spp. and their effects on seed quality was investigated using four maize cultivars (Pioneer 3551,3591,3709 and 3475) over two seasons (1989/90,1990/91) at Massey University, Palmerston North. As harvest was delayed from April to July, the percentage of cobs showing Fusarium mould increased. Cultivar 3551 tended to develop Fusarium cob mould later in the season (June) than the other three cultivars. In both seasons the percentage of seeds of all four cultivars infected with Fusarium spp. increased as harvest was delayed. However, there was a difference between the two seasons; in 1989/90 the mean percentage of seeds carrying Fusarium spp. was 26%, 39%, 70% and 82% for April, May, June and July harvests respectively, while the corresponding levels for 1990/91 were 1%, 9%, 31% and 40% respectively. Between season differences were ascribed to climatic differences, the former season being wetter and warmer than the ...
G1 seed (seed grown 1 year after virus therapy in the foundation seed production field at the Sweet Potato Research Station, Louisiana State University Agricultural Center) was used as a reference to compare the yield and virus incidence of growers generation 2 (G2) and generation 3 (G3) seed roots (grown in the growers seed production fields 1or 2 years following the year of foundation seed production). Although yields of plants grown from G2 and G3 seed were 86.3% and 86.1% for U.S. No. 1 and 83.3% and 86.0% for total marketable, respectively, compared with the yields from G1 seed, they were not significantly different, the scientists reported. Yield and virus incidence data suggested that seed quality may vary from year to year and from location to location.. Clark said that study results suggest that producers are indeed realizing yield benefits by incorporating virus-tested foundation seed into their production schemes. It is also evident from the data that there is a decline in ...

Seeds of watermelon [Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum and Nakai, cv. Crimson Sweet] were used to investigate the effects of different priming techniques on seed germination and early seedling growth. The seeds were soaked in solutions of 0.2% gibberellin (50 mg L–1 gibberellic acid), 0.2% cytokinin (90 mg L–1 kinetin), 0.2% potassium nitrate (2 g L–1 KNO3), 0.2% calcium nitrate [2 g L–1 Ca(NO3)2] or water (hydropriming) for 6 h at 25°C. After drying, five replicates of 25 seeds were distributed in plastic boxes with blotter paper and kept into a seed germinator at 26°C for 12 days. The different priming treatments significantly affect the measurements of the seed germination and growth of watermelon seedlings. The germination of watermelon seeds ranged from 0 to 100%, and was significantly greater when seeds were subjected to priming with GA3, KNO3, Ca(NO3)2 and water (control), and lower under cytokinin (CK) priming. The seed priming with 0.2% solution of CK resulted

Do you like to feed wild birds in winter? Follow these tips to keep your bird seed fresh.. Putting out bird feeders is a great way to attract more birds to your yard and garden in winter. There are some steps you need to take to ensure that the bird seed you are storing stays fresh and safe for the birds to eat, and to make sure your bird seed supply area stay neat and well stocked.. First, when purchasing seed for birds, avoid bird seed in burlap bags. Insects can easily get through the burlap and infest the bird seed. Mice and chipmunks and other rodents like to eat bird seed. Avoid buying bags that have obvious holes or have been patched. This means that somewhere along the supply chain, rodents have gotten into the bird seed.. At home, keep in mind that open bags of bird seed will attract rodents. When you open a bag of bird seed, transfer its contents into a heavy-duty plastic bin with a locking lid.

A non-destructive and novel in situ acoustic sensor approach based on the sound absorption spectra was developed for identifying and classifying different seed types. The absorption coefficient spectra were determined by using the impedance tube measurement method. Subsequently, a multivariate statistical analysis, i.e., principal component analysis (PCA), was performed as a way to generate a classification of the seeds based on the soft independent modelling of class analogy (SIMCA) method. The results show that the sound absorption coefficient spectra of different seed types present characteristic patterns which are highly dependent on seed size and shape. In general, seed particle size and sphericity were inversely related with the absorption coefficient. PCA presented reliable grouping capabilities within the diverse seed types, since the 95% of the total spectral variance was described by the first two principal components. Furthermore, the SIMCA classification model based on the absorption spectra
If you cant seem to get any fennel seeds at your local grocer, then you could always get some caraway seeds as alternatives.

Tomato seeds, a by-product of tomato processing (cannery, tomato paste, tomato juice, etc.), contain about 20-25% of an edible oil rich in linoleic acid (50-60%) and cholesterol (Lazos et al., 1998; Giannelos et al., 2005; Gunstone, 2006). The development of tomato processing in Italy and in the USA at the turn of the twentieth century led to an interest in tomato oil for soap-making and cooking, and in the use of tomato seed cake, the by-product of the oil extraction, in feeds and fertilizer (Rabak, 1917). Today, tomato seeds are usually mixed with the skins and pulp residue to make tomato pomace, and tomato seed oil has become a niche product, used notably in cosmetics. In recent years, there has been a renewed interest both in tomato seed oil for its nutraceutical properties and as a biofuel (Lazos et al., 1998; Giannelos et al., 2005), and in the protein of the seed cake, which is rich in lysine, and, when added to bread, improves loaf volume, texture and crumb quality, due to its ...
In some European countries, Adonis flammea is very rare and endangered primarily due to increasing fertilizer and herbicide use, more efficient seed cleaning, and strong soil acidification. The aims of this study were to determine the requirements for embryo growth, dormancy break, and seed germination to characterize the type of seed dormancy (via effects of GA3) and to evaluate the effects of light on germination ability. Germination responses of A. flammea were tested in light and dark conditions at three alternating temperatures (15/5°C, 20/10°C, 25/15°C) after stratification. Embryo growth was determined by measuring its lengths. Fresh seeds did not germinate during one month of incubation in either light or darkness over a range of temperatures. Seeds of A. flammea had underdeveloped embryos that must grow from about 0.2 to 1.5 mm in length before radicle emergence (germination); thus they had Morphological Dormancy (MD). In addition to MD, the seeds also had Physiological Dormancy (PD) at

Thomas Merton is often considered the most prominent Christian contemplative of the twentieth century, but he was also a political activist, social visionary, and literary figure whose writings combine the candor of Thoreau and the moral vision of Gandhi. Here is a remarkably accessible introduction to his work: a collection of a short, vivid excerpts arranged in four parts so as to parallel the journey of a seeking soul in the modern world. - Real and False Selves distinguishes between our real selves, a deep religious mystery known entirely only to God, and the identities we take on in order to function in society. - The World We Live In provides a spiritual context to modern life, moving from a stark rejection of its empty promises to a deep compassion for its tragic limitations. - Antidotes to Illusion reflects on contemplative practices that can serve as the allies of our real selves in the battle against illusion: silence, solitude, meditation, prayer, charity, and faith. - Love in

  • Delta &r Pine Land Co.'s press release claims that its new technology has ' the prospect of opening significant worldwide seed markets to the sale of transgenic technology for crops in which seed currently is saved and used in subsequent plantings. (
  • If Monsanto's new technology provides a genetic mechanism to prevent farmers from germinating a second generation of seed, then seed companies will gain the biological control over seeds that they have heretofore lacked in non-hybrid crops. (
  • From growing seeds to transplanting seedlings, these tips can help you start fresh crops each year. (
  • Though there's a moratorium on the growing of GM crops, there's no such ban on animal feed containing GM seed. (
  • In order to turn positive traits (e.g., herbicide-resistance) on, or negative traits (e.g., sterility) off, the farmer would need to either apply proprietary chemicals to the crops as they grow or pay to have the seeds soaked in a catalyst solution prior to planting. (
  • The use of terminator technology would allow the seed industry to expand into new sectors of the seed market, like those for self-pollinating crops such as wheat, rice, cotton, soybeans, oats and sorghum, according to the Canadian-based Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI). (

  • Seed of many trees, shrubs and perennials require these conditions before germination will ensue. (
  • After undergoing the recommended period of stratification, the seeds are ready to be removed and sown in the nursery bed for germination. (
  • Warm stratification requires temperatures of 15-20°C (59-68°F). In many instances, warm stratification followed by cold stratification requirements can also be met by planting the seeds in summer in a mulched bed for expected germination the following spring. (
  • Soaking seeds before planting speeds up germination by stirring up the process of the dormant baby plant inside the seed's hull coming to life. (
  • The speed of germination, if any, will vary from seed to seed. (
  • The germination of the seeds also has essential secondary roles in ecology and the lifecycle of organisms. (
  • Many state laws limit the time period after packaging or germination testing when agricultural or vegetable seeds may be sold. (

  • Seed companies produce a huge range of seeds from highly developed F1 hybrids to open pollinated wild species. (
  • They often offer organic and open pollinated varieties of seeds as opposed to hybrids. (
  • Unlike modern hybrids, heirloom seeds are open-pollinated, which means they will breed true and can be saved by the gardener from year to year - an important consideration for food security and self-sufficiency. (

  • About a quarter of her seed offerings derive from Amish, Mennonite and other Pennsylvania German settlers, and virtually all the strains are heirloom varieties that have been around for at least 50 years. (
  • It may be more appropriate for amateur gardeners to use older (heirloom) varieties as the modern seed types are often the same as those grown by commercial producers, and so characteristics which are useful to them (e.g. vegetables ripening at the same time) may be unsuited to home growing. (
