Abstract

For the past two years we have been trying to determine the mechanisms by which the translation of the stored mRNA of cotton seeds is prevented until the commencement of germination. We have collected data that suggests that the stored mRNA is not completely processed until germination begins. More specifically, it does not appear to become polyadenylated prior to seed germination. Before presenting these data, we would like to summarize briefly the evidence for the existence of stored mRNA in cotton seeds.
