Testa is involved in the control of storage mobilisation in seeds of Sesbania virgata (Cav.) Pers., a tropical legume tree from of the Atlantic Forest

Abstract

Seeds of Sesbania virgata (Cav.) Pers. (Leguminosae) contain galactomannan as a cell wall storage polysaccharide in the endosperm. After germination, it is hydrolysed by three enzymes: α-galactosidase (EC 3.2.1.22), endo-β-mannanase (EC 3.2.1.78) and β-mannosidase (EC 3.2.1.25). This work aimed at studying the role of the testa (seed coat) on galactomannan… (More)
