Intact wild-type tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum cv. Moneymaker) seeds do not complete germination to the same percentage or at the same speed as intact ABA-deficient sitiens (sit") mutant seeds when seeds of both genotypes are imbibed on polyethylene glycol (PEG) solutions of -0 .3 to —1.5 MPa osmotic potential. However, if the thicker testas of wild-type seeds are removed (stripped) from the micropyle without damaging the endosperm, both the percentage and speed of germination at low external… CONTINUE READING
