Cytological study of pollen tube growth and early seed development inPetunia inflata
Pollen tube growth from the stigma into the ovule, and the early fruit and seed development following fertilization were examined in Petunia inflata, exhibiting the pattern of cellular type of endosperm development. Expand
Endosperm‐based postzygotic hybridization barriers: developmental mechanisms and evolutionary drivers
The developmental mechanisms causing hybrid seed lethality in angiosperms as well as the evolutionary forces establishing endosperm‐based postzygotic hybridization barriers are discussed. Expand
Postzygotic reproductive isolation established in the endosperm: mechanisms, drivers and relevance
The mechanisms establishing hybridization barriers in the endosperm, the driving forces for these barriers and their impact for angiosperm evolution are discussed. Expand
Discolored1 (DSC1) is an ADP-Ribosylation Factor-GTPase Activating Protein Required to Maintain Differentiation of Maize Kernel Structures
Detailed phenotypic analyses illustrate that discolored mutant kernels are able to establish, but fail to maintain, differentiated embryo, and endosperm structures. Expand
Impact of seaweeds on agricultural crop production as biofertilizer
In this review, scientific progress in this field was collected and critically assessed to lay grounds for further investigations and applications of seaweed extracts in agriculture. Expand
SHORT HYPOCOTYL UNDER BLUE1 Associates with MINISEED3 and HAIKU2 Promoters in Vivo to Regulate Arabidopsis Seed Development[W]
Here, SHB1 is identified as a positive regulator of Arabidopsis seed development that affects both cell size and cell number and is required for the proper expression of two other genes that affect endosperm development, MINISEED3 and HAIKU2. Expand
In vitro culture of endosperm and its application in plant breeding: Approaches to polyploidy breeding
The endosperm-ploidy levels and its applications in plant breeding are discussed, and novel approaches for polyploidsy breeding using endos sperm culture are described. Expand
Title : Disruption of endosperm development is a major cause of hybrid seed inviability between 1
13 14 • Divergence of developmental mechanisms within populations may lead to hybrid 15 developmental failure, and may be a factor driving speciation in angiosperms. 16 • We investigate patterns ofExpand
The effects of a novel, slow-release application method for an Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed extract biofertilizer on maize (Zea mays L.) growth and nutrient accumulation
Slow-release ANE formulations were developed, and it was hypothesized that applications of these formulations would result in greater growth in maize than the liquid formulation, suggesting that increasing physiological nitrogen use efficiency could have been the potential mode of action for enhancing growth.

Eckol - a new plant growth stimulant from the brown seaweed Ecklonia maxima
The isolated eckol from E. maxima stimulated maize growth in terms of shoot and root elongation and number of seminal roots and exhibited improvement in the biochemical activities of α-amylase compared to Kelpak®, phloroglucinol, and IBA. Expand
