Gametophytic maternal effect mutants
Plant female gametophytes give rise to a diploid embryo and triploid endosperm. Our capulet mutants disrupts normal endosperm development.
The peroxiredoxin antioxidant AtPER1
Peroxiredoxins (Prx) - thiol-dependent antioxidants with one or two conserved cysteine residues - protect lipids, enzymes, and DNA against reactive oxygen species. We have studied 1-Cys Prxs, expressed during late seed development.
