Endosperm development

Curr Opin Plant Biol. 1999 Feb;2(1):28-32. doi: 10.1016/s1369-5266(99)80006-5.


There is a renewal of interest in endosperm development. Recent studies are leading the way to a better understanding of fundamental processes such as cell cycle control and the mechanisms of imprinting. A more global view of interactions between the endosperm and the embryo is emerging and will initiate an integrated approach to the study of seed development.
