Title:
A Molecular Signal Integration Network Underpinning Arabidopsis Seed Germination. 
Abstract:
Seed dormancy is an adaptive trait defining where and when plants are established. Diverse signals from the environment are used to decide when to initiate seed germination, a process driven by the expansion of cells within the embryo. How these signals are integrated and transduced into the biomechanical changes that drive embryo growth remains poorly understood. Using Arabidopsis seeds, we demonstrate that cell-wall-loosening EXPANSIN (EXPA) genes promote gibberellic acid (GA)-mediated germina...    »
