TitleGene expression between dry and imbibed seeds in vitamin C defective (vtc) mutants and wild-type Arabidopsis thaliana
Study TypeTranscriptome Analysis
Abstract In the dry state, orthodox seeds have little antioxidant capacity, relying on reduced glutathione and tocochromanols for antioxidant defences rather than ascorbate or ascorbate peroxidase (APX). Ascorbate is synthesised de novo within a few hours of imbibition resulting in rapid increases in the asc .. [more]
