In contrast, mature coconuts contain less water, and their endosperm
thickens quickly to white edible meat.
With the progress of biotechnology, an Aspergillus niger-derived phytase expressed in the endosperm
of corn has recently been developed (Chen et al.
enter the central cell, allowing normal endosperm
Specifically, the project aims to: 1) improve the eating quality of the present high protein quality corn by monitoring the level of different starch components using near infra red spectroscopy, 2) enhance the effectiveness of selection for higher lysine and tryptophan content in the high protein quality corn breeding population using molecular markers and near infra red spectroscopy, 3) monitor the level of different endosperm
components related to nutritional feature of flint corn as food grain, and 4) develop inbred lines with improved nutritional quality using molecular markers technology.
It was reported that GA3 might enhance the growth potential by inducing degradation of food reserves in endosperm
by stimulating hydrolytic enzyme activity .
A cereal is a member of the grass family, grown for the edible components of its grain which consists of the endosperm
, germ, and bran.
It consists of the 'aleurone' layer that surrounds the starchy endosperm
of the wheat kernel and is proven to contain the grain's highest content of valuable nutrients, including dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals.
A whole grain is a cereal grain that contains the germ, endosperm
, and bran, in contrast to refined grains, which retain only the endosperm
Together with its partners, NCAUR is also investigating new procedures for separating out components of the corn kernel itself--including the germ, hull, and endosperm
fiber--to obtain residue oil, protein, gum, and useful compounds like ferulic acid, used as an antioxidant in skincare products and as a synthetic vanilla flavoring agent.
Aim 3)The role of TE easiRNAs in the protection of the embryos genome from the transposition of female active TEs in the endosperm
or/and the embryo.
Whole grains consist of the intact, ground, cracked, or flaked caryopsis, whose principal anatomical components such as the starchy endosperm
, germ, and bran.
The significance of genic balance to endosperm
development in interspecific crosses.
