BACKGROUND AND AIMS Although abscisic acid (ABA) is commonly recognized as a primary cause of seed dormancy, there is a lack of information on the role of ABA during orchid seed development. In order to address this issue, the localization and quantification of ABA were determined in developing seeds of Cypripedium formosanum. METHODS The endogenous ABA profile of seeds was measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Temporal and spatial distributions of ABA in developing seeds… Expand
In vitro germination and low-temperature seed storage of Cypripedium lentiginosum P.J.Cribb & S.C.Chen, a rare and endangered lady's slipper orchid
TLDR
Procedures for asymbiotic seed germination and seed storage were established for Cypripedium lentiginosum, an endangered lady’s slipper orchid, and it is suggested that the lignified seed coats may cause the coat-imposed dormancy. Expand
Abscisic Acid Inhibits Asymbiotic Germination of Immature Seeds of Paphiopedilum armeniacum
TLDR
The result showed that ABA can inhibit the germination of P. armeniacum immature seeds, and for the heavily lignified mature seeds, reduction in endogenous ABA level does not result in an increase in the Germination rate. Expand
Increased Expression of 9-Cis-Epoxycarotenoid Dioxygenase, PtNCED1, Associated With Inhibited Seed Germination in a Terrestrial Orchid, Phaius tankervilliae
TLDR
This work isolated and characterized a full-length cDNA encoding an NCED homolog, PtNCED1, from developing seeds of an ornamental orchid, Phaius tankervilliae, and provided evidence of the involvement of PtNCed1 in regulating endogenous ABA content in developing seeds and protocorms. Expand
Dormancy release and germination of Taxus yunnanensis seeds during wet sand storage
TLDR
The results indicate that ABA is the key inhibitor of germination in Taxus, in which the embryos can continue to grow and hormone imbalance inhibits further development and germination. Expand
Asymbiotic germination of Vanilla planifolia in relation to the timing of seed collection and seed pretreatments
TLDR
A reliable protocol for seed pretreatment of mature seeds and for immature seeds culture based on a defined time schedule of V. plantifolia seed development is reported. Expand
Asymbiotic Germination of Mature Seeds and the Seed Development of Vanilla Planifolia
Background: Vanilla planifolia is an important tropical orchid for production of natural vanilla flavor. Traditionally, V. planifolia is propagated by stem cuttings, which produces identicalExpand
Evaluation of seed quality based on changes of internal substances during tobacco seed (Nicotiana tabacum L.) development
TLDR
Generally, the germination percentage (seed viability) in HD and Y97 seed was related to oil, moisture, soluble sugar, protein, starch, ABA, lysine, arginine, seed weight and seed coat color; however, only moisture, oil and protein had a significant correlation with vigor index (seed vigor). Expand
Symbiotic and Asymbiotic Germination of Dendrobium officinale (Orchidaceae) Respond Differently to Exogenous Gibberellins
TLDR
The results demonstrate that GA3 is probably a key signal molecule for crosstalk between the seed germination pathway and mycorrhiza symbiosis during the orchid seed symbiotic germination. Expand
Transcriptome analysis provides insights into the non-methylated lignin synthesis in Paphiopedilum armeniacum seed
TLDR
This work demonstrated the plasticity of natural lignin polymer assembly in seed and provided a better understanding of the molecular mechanism of seed-specific lignification process. Expand
A perspective on orchid seed and protocorm development
  • E. Yeung
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Botanical Studies
  • 2017
TLDR
Arguments that the processes of embryo and protocorm development are highly programmed events, enhancing survival of orchid seeds and plantlets in their natural habitats are brought forth, making them ideal explants for micropropagation and transformation studies. Expand

Developmental Changes in Endogenous Abscisic Acid Concentrations and Asymbiotic Seed Germination of a Terrestrial Orchid, Calanthe tricarinata Lindl.
TLDR
It is suggested that high concentrations of endogenous ABA in orchid seeds may play a critical role in arresting embryo growth and in preventing seed germination. Expand
Changes in abscisic acid and its β-D-glucopyranosyl ester levels during tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) seed development
TLDR
Fruit tissue analyses provided new information about the ABA origin in seeds and the results suggested different ABA metabolism in seed and fruit tissues. Expand
Preferential localization of abscisic acid in primordial and nursing cells of reproductive organs of Arabidopsis and cucumber.
TLDR
These findings suggest that, in addition to its well-known function as a 'negative hormone', ABA may play some 'positive' roles during plant development, including possible involvement in the regulation of assimilate distribution. Expand
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. Expand
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.

Release of dormancy in sunflower embryos by dry storage: involvement of gibberellins and abscisic acid
Excised Helianthus annuus L. embryos became dormant during the third week after anthesis. At this stage a short drying treatment (3 d) led to a slight improvement in germination but a 6-week dryExpand
Embryo Development of Cypripedium formosanum in Relation to Seed Germination In Vitro
TLDR
For seed germination, the results indicate that the timing of seed collection outweighs the composition of medium and the seed pretreatments. Expand
Abscissic acid localization by light microscopic immunohistochemistry in Chenopodium polyspermum L. Effect of water stress.
TLDR
An indirect immunohistochemical technique was developed using a rabbit anti-abscissic acid (ABA) serum and the soluble peroxidases-antiperoxidase (PAP) complex for the localization of endogenous ABA in the aerial parts of Chenopodium and an apico-basal gradient of ABA was revealed. Expand
Changes in endogenous abscisic acid levels during dormancy release and maintenance of mature seeds: studies with the Cape Verde Islands ecotype, the dormant model of Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is indicated that Cvi D and ND seeds can be easily distinguished by their ability to synthesize ABA following imbibition. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that ABA influences storage globulin accumulation by initiating synthesis, suppressing degradation, and inhibiting precocious germination. Expand
