Western white pine (Pinus monticola) seeds exhibit deep dormancy at maturity and seed populations require several months of moist chilling to reach their uppermost germination capacities. Abscisic acid (ABA) and its metabolites, phaseic acid (PA), dihydrophaseic acid (DPA), 7′-hydroxy ABA (7′OH ABA) and ABA-glucose ester (ABA-GE), were quantified in western white pine seeds during dormancy breakage (moist chilling) and germination using an HPLC–tandem mass spectrometry method with multiple…

Disrupting Abscisic Acid Homeostasis in Western White Pine (Pinus monticola Dougl. Ex D. Don) Seeds Induces Dormancy Termination and Changes in Abscisic Acid Catabolites
TLDR
Levels of 7′ hydroxy-ABA were higher in dormant-imbibed seeds, suggesting that metabolism through this pathway is increased in seeds that maintain higher levels of ABA, perhaps as a means to further regulate ABA homeostasis.
Changes in hormone flux and signaling in white spruce (Picea glauca) seeds during the transition from dormancy to germination in response to temperature cues
TLDR
The dormancy to germination transition in white spruce seeds was correlated with changes in auxin conjugation, auxin signaling components, and potential interactions between auxin-ABA signaling cascades.
Roles of abscisic acid and gibberellins in maintaining primary and secondary dormancy of Korean pine seeds
TLDR
It is suggested that high ABA levels in the seed coat maintain primary dormancy of Korean pine seeds.
Dormancy breaking in Fagus sylvatica seeds is linked to formation of abscisic acid-glucosyl ester
Seed dormancy is an adaptive mechanism that allows seed germination under suitable environmental conditions. Germination of stored dormant seeds proceeds after dormancy breaking induced by
Analysis of Phytohormone Profiles during Male and Female Cone Initiation and Early Differentiation in Long-shoot Buds of Lodgepole Pine
TLDR
It is revealed that the local hormonal status in a long-shoot bud at specific developmental stages may play an important role in gender determination and cone yield.
Water uptake and oil distribution during imbibition of seeds of western white pine (Pinus monticola Dougl. ex D. Don) monitored in vivo using magnetic resonance imaging
TLDR
High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging revealed many of the gross anatomical features of seed structure and a model that describes the kinetics of the earlier stages of imbibition is proposed.
Polyamines, IAA and ABA during germination in two recalcitrant seeds: Araucaria angustifolia (Gymnosperm) and Ocotea odorifera (Angiosperm).
TLDR
The gymnosperm seed, though without a connective tissue between megagametophyte and embryo, seems to be able to maintain communication between the tissues, based on the likely transport of plant growth regulators.
Variant maturity in seed structures of Pinus albicaulis (Engelm.) and Pinus sibirica (Du Tour): key to a soil seed bank, unusual among conifers?
TLDR
Despite maturity of the seed coat and advanced differentiation of the embryo, the embryo and the megagametophyte were still immature, and morphological features and a notable proportion of storage reserves remaining in unstable form may, however, be advantageous for maintaining viability and reaching maturity within a soil seed bank.
Roles of gibberellins and abscisic acid in dormancy and germination of red bayberry (Myrica rubra) seeds.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that endogenous ABA inhibited release of dormancy and that endogenous gibberellins, especially GA(4) or GA(1), or both, are involved in germination.
Role of Abscisic Acid in Seed Dormancy
TLDR
Quantitative genetics and functional genomics approaches will contribute to the elucidation of genes and proteins that control seed dormancy and germination, including components of the ABA signal transduction pathway.

Increasing the temperature of the water soak preceding moist-chilling promotes dormancy-termination of seeds of western white pine (Pinus monticola Dougl.)
TLDR
The most effective treatment to terminate dormancy was an increased-temperature water soak prior to moist chilling, and control of seed moisture content during chilling through the use of solid matrix priming was not effective in eliciting high germinability and proved more deleterious especially for longer chilling periods.
Breakage of Pseudotsuga menziesii seed dormancy by cold treatment as related to changes in seed ABA sensitivity and ABA levels.
TLDR
The results suggest that the breaking of dormancy by cold was associated with a lower capacity of ABA biosynthesis and/or a higher ABA catabolism in the seeds subsequently placed at 15 or 25 degrees C.
Changes in ABA turnover and sensitivity that accompany dormancy termination of yellow-cedar (Chamaecyparis nootkatensis) seeds.
TLDR
A change in the embryo's ability to metabolize ABA and reduced embryo sensitivity to ABA are two factors associated with dormancy termination of whole seeds of yellow cedar; a change in only one of these factors is insufficient to elicit high germinability.
Control of seed dormancy in Nicotiana plumbaginifolia: post-imbibition abscisic acid synthesis imposes dormancy maintenance
TLDR
Fluridone, a carotenoid biosynthesis inhibitor, is almost as efficient as GA3 in breaking dormancy and reveals an important role for ABA synthesis in dormancy maintenance in imbibed seeds.
Abscisic acid, phaseic acid and gibberellin contents associated with dormancy and germination in barley.
TLDR
Results are consistent with the view that ABA is the primary effector of dormancy and that after-ripening involves the development of the ability to reduce the amount of ABA quickly following hydration.
Physical and chemical treatments to improve laboratory germination of western white pine seeds
Two seed lots of western white pine (Pinusmonticola Dougl.) were treated by various chemical and physical methods to increase their germination. For unstratified seeds, treatments by hydrogen

TLDR
The phenology of post-dormancy pollen cone, pollen, seed cone, and ovule development was determined for western white pine growing at a coastal and an interior seed orchard in British Columbia.
Water content, lipid deposition, and (+)-abscisic acid content in developing white spruce seeds
TLDR
Water distribution is a factor in assay, during seed development, and the highest (+)-ABA the inhibition of premature germinative events; presumcontent was detected in the female gametophytic and it impacts on the transition of cellular activities from tissue, this at 11 d after pollination (DAP).
Induction of dormancy during seed development by endogenous abscisic acid: studies on abscisic acid deficient genotypes of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh.
TLDR
Mutant lines of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh, which are characterized by symptoms of withering and the absence of seed dormancy, showed much lower levels of endogenous abscisic acid (ABA) in developing seeds and fruits than the wild type, and it seems that limited access to water is the primary trigger for the developmental arrest in these seeds.

TLDR
In situ ABA synthesis is necessary to impose and maintain the embryo dormancy of sunflower embryos by inhibiting germination as long as exogenous ABA was present.
