Role of Abscisic Acid in the Induction of Desiccation Tolerance in Developing Seeds of Arabidopsis thaliana.

Abstract

In contrast to wild-type seeds of Arabidopsis thaliana and to seeds deficient in (aba) or insensitive to (abi3) abscisic acid (ABA), maturing seeds of recombinant (aba,abi3) plants fail to desiccate, remain green, and lose viability upon drying. These double-mutant seeds acquire only low levels of the major storage proteins and are deficient in several low… (More)
