An Arabidopsis gene encoding a C2H2-domain protein with alternatively spliced transcripts is essential for endosperm development.

Abstract

The endosperm is an essential part of the seed which sustains embryo development and contains storage reserves. Endosperm development involves a series of nuclear divisions in the absence of cytokinesis. In this study, it is shown that a mutant Arabidopsis plant carrying the disrupted At4g24900 gene exhibits severe defects during seed development. At4g24900… (More)
