Abstract

The study of the process of protein synthesis in seed plant embryos is interesting for two reasons. First, the mechanism operative in eukaryotic protein synthesis has not been worked out in the detail achieved with bacterial systems. Obviously, it is important to explore possible differences in the mechanisms and to establish how the whole machinery fits in the context of the cells of these organisms. The second reason is more relevant to the specific system reported on here. The involvement of protein synthesis in the trigger mechanism of germination that changes dormant seed embryos into highly active seedlings offers an opportunity to study protein synthesis in relation to dramatic and fundamental developmental events.
