Embryo lethal phenotypes in early abp1 mutants are due to disruption of the neighboring BSM gene

PMCID: 4642851
PMID: 26629335
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.7695.r10911

[…] to 5 th developmental stage were used. Siliques were dissected using a sharp needle and seeds were extracted and transferred onto microscopic slides into the drop of the Hoyer’s solution ( and cleared for 1 h similarly as described ( ). The embryos were analyzed under 20 × magnification using a digital camera system of the Olympus BX53 microscope by Normansk […]


Global scale transcriptome analysis of Arabidopsis embryogenesis in vitro

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4404573
PMID: 25887996
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-1504-6

[…] at encode for essential and non-redundant function, the subset of genes that were expressed at a higher level in somatic embryos were probed with the embryo defective mutant gene list reported in the SeedGenes database ( This database provides information on 481 essential genes and 888 mutants. It was evident that 101 (21%) of those genes are expressed at a higher level […]


Molecular Foundations of Reproductive Lethality in Arabidopsis thaliana

PLoS One
PMCID: 3229588
PMID: 22164284
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0028398

[…] on is particularly difficult with lethal mutants because homozygous mutant tissue cannot be readily analyzed. We therefore decided to record the insert locations for mutant alleles represented in the SeedGenes database, with the assumption that on average, disruptions in the beginning (A region) and middle (B region) of a gene may be more likely to eliminate protein function than those at the end […]


Identification of imprinted genes subject to parent of origin specific expression in Arabidopsis thaliana seeds

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 3174879
PMID: 21838868
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2229-11-113

[…] like also displays sequence similarity with the sulphur deficiency-induced gene AtSDI1 [].The maternally expressed imprinted gene PDE120 is annotated as a pigment defective embryo (pde) mutant in the SeedGenes database [,]. The nuclear encoded PDE120 locus encodes the TIC40 protein which is a component of the protein import apparatus of the inner envelope of the chloroplast []. The identification […]
