Properties of the soybean seed coat cuticle change during development

  title={Properties of the soybean seed coat cuticle change during development},
  author={Kosala Ranathunge and Suqin Shao and Dinah Qutob and Mark Gijzen and Carol A. Peterson and Mark A. Bernards},
Whether a seed coat of a soybean (Glycine max L. Mer.) seed is permeable or non-permeable is governed by a number of quantitative trait loci further influenced by environmental factors. In soybean seeds, water loss is controlled by a thin, inconspicuous outer cuticle. When intact, the outer cuticle constitutes a barrier to water passage; however, the presence of minute cracks in the cuticle results in the ready passage of water. We explored the timing of cuticular development in soybean seeds… CONTINUE READING
