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.
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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
