The Arabidopsis Aleurone Layer Responds to Nitric Oxide, Gibberellin, and Abscisic Acid and Is Sufficient and Necessary for Seed Dormancy1[C][W][OA]
Seed dormancy is a common phase of the plant life cycle, and several parts of the seed can contribute to dormancy. Whole seeds, seeds lacking the testa, embryos, and isolated aleurone layers ofExpand

Genetic Variation for Lettuce Seed Thermoinhibition Is Associated with Temperature-Sensitive Expression of Abscisic Acid, Gibberellin, and Ethylene Biosynthesis, Metabolism, and Response
Lettuce (Lactuca sativa ‘Salinas’) seeds fail to germinate when imbibed at temperatures above 25°C to 30°C (termed thermoinhibition). However, seeds of an accession of Lactuca serriola (UC96US23) doExpand

Endo-[beta]-Mannanase Activity from Individual Tomato Endosperm Caps and Radicle Tips in Relation to Germination Rates
Endo-[beta]-mannanase is hypothesized to be a rate-limiting enzyme in endosperm weakening, which is a prerequisite for radicle emergence from tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) seeds. Using aExpand

Genomics of Compositae crops: reference transcriptome assemblies and evidence of hybridization with wild relatives
Although the Compositae harbours only two major food crops, sunflower and lettuce, many other species in this family are utilized by humans and have experienced various levels of domestication. Here,Expand
