Regulation of Gene Expression in Developing Zea mays Embryos: Protein Synthesis during Embryogenesis and Early Germination of Maize


, : Regulation of Gene Expression in Developing Zea mays Embryos: Protein Synthesis during Embryogenesis and Early Germination of Maize. Plant Physiology 82(2): 543-549

Polypeptides synthesized in dissected embryos of Zea mays at different stages of embryogenesis and early germination have been characterized by their migration in two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. This analysis has been carried out with in vivo labeled polypeptides from excised embryos and with proteins synthesized in vitro in the rabbit reticulocyte system directed by poly(A(+)) RNA isolated from the different developmental stages. We have identified three main sets of expressed polypeptides: (a) embryonic set: this group of polypeptides is synthesized in young and mature embryos but not in early germination; (b) maturation set: this group of polypeptides is not present in young embryos and appears during the maturation period. Some of these polypeptides are still present in early germination while others disappear from stored mRNAs in dry embryos. One particular group from this set can be induced prematurely in young embryos by incubation with abscisic acid; and (c) germination set: this group of polypeptides is not expressed in the maturation period and appears after brief imbibition of the dry embryos.
