In angiosperms, a double fertilization event initiates the development of two distinct structures, the embryo and endosperm. The endosperm plays an important role in supporting embryonic growth by supplying nutrients, protecting the embryo and controlling embryo growth by acting as a mechanical barrier during seed development and germination. Its structure(More)
Seed germination is a result of the competition of embryonic growth potential and mechanical constraint by surrounding tissues such as the endosperm. To understand the processes occurring in the endosperm during germination, we analyzed tiling array expression data on dissected endosperm and embryo from 6 and 24 h-imbibed Arabidopsis seeds. The genes(More)
