Endosperms and embryos of mature dry castor bean ricinus communis seeds contain active ribosomes



Endosperms and embryos of mature dry castor bean ricinus communis seeds contain active ribosomes



Phytochemistry (Oxford) 18(10): 1617-1620



Mature dry endosperms and embryos of castor bean contain ribosomes which are capable of catalyzing protein synthesis in vitro. This observation contradicts previous reports that ribosomes are absent from mature dry endosperms. On hydration of the mature seeds the polyribosome content of both embryos and endosperms increases. These polyribosomes are lost on subsequent dehydration but, again, ribosomes are conserved.
