A description is given of morphological changes which occur in the nucellar projection and crease aleurone cells of barley caryopses between 10 and 35 days after anthesis. Transfer cells are found in the nucellar projection at all stages. Some cells of the nucellar projection bordering the endosperm cavity have stacked cisternae of endoplasmic reticulum. The massive wall thickening observed in young cells of crease aleurone and in some cells of the nucellar projection appears to be composed of… CONTINUE READING
