Abstract: Primary seed dormancy is acquired during seed development and maturation, which is important for plant fitness and survival. DELAY OF GERMINATION1 (DOG1) plays a critical role in inducing seed dormancy. DOG1 expression increases rapidly during seed development, but the precise mechanism underlying this process remains elusive. In this study, we showed that mutants with a loss or reduced function of the chromatin-remodeling factor PICKLE (PKL) exhibit increased seed dormancy. PKL associat…
