  author={Keito Nishizawaa and Masao Ishimoto},
Soybean somatic embryos have attracted attention both as a model of zygotic embryos and as explants for the generation of stable transgenic plants. We have now characterized the maturation of soybean somatic embryos in detail by examining both the accumulation of the major seed storage proteins b-conglycinin and glycinin as well as changes in cellular organization. Protein storage vacuoles and oil bodies, which are the main depositories of seed storage reserves, formed within cells during the… CONTINUE READING
