Characterization of maize defective kernel (dek) mutants affecting seed germination



Characterization of maize defective kernel (dek) mutants affecting seed germination



Maydica 41(4): 271-277



A group of maize defective kernel (dek) mutants, defective in embryo and endosperm development and showing altered or suppressed germination, was characterized with the aim of identifying genes involved in embryogenesis and related to hormone action.
