Germin isoforms are discrete temporal markers of wheat development. Pseudogermin is a uniquely thermostable water-soluble oligomeric protein in ungerminated embryos and like germin in germinated embryos, it is incorporated into cell walls.

Nascent synthesis and accumulation of germin and its mRNA mark the onset of renewed growth when wheat embryos are germinated in water. Germin is a water-soluble, pepsin-resistant protein that is not found in immature embryos, or in mature embryos before their germination. An antiserum was raised by injecting rabbits with germin that was freed of other proteins by pepsinization and gel filtration. The antiserum has been used to detect, in extracts of mature embryos from dry, ungerminated wheat… CONTINUE READING
