Lipid peroxidation associated with accelerated aging of soybean axes.
Soybean seeds age rapidly during storage at high temperature and high relative humidity. The axes of such aged seeds contain high levels of malondialdehyde, a product of the peroxidation ofExpand

Breaking down the walls — a role for endo-β-mannanase in release from seed dormancy?
Dormancy is imposed in some seeds by the tissues that surround the embryo, which act as a mechanical barrier to the emergence of the radicle. Thus it has been proposed that germination is completedExpand

Structure and Composition
Seeds are very diverse in their shape and size. In the mature state they contain an embryo, the next generation of plant, surrounded by a protective structure (the seed and/or fruit coat) and, inExpand
