The maternal-to-zygotic transition (MZT) is an essential developmental turning point in both plants and animals. In plants, the timing of MZT and parental contributions to the zygotic transcriptome remain unclear. Here, by overcoming technical limitations, we characterize the Arabidopsis egg...

Unrepaired DNA damage hinders the maintenance of genome integrity because it blocks the catalytic activity of replicase. The stalled replication fork can be processed through either translesion synthesis (TLS) with specific polymerases, or replication using the undamaged template. To investigate...

Callus cultures of Annona squamosa were induced using different explants including petals, seed contents (megagametophyte and embryo) and fruits (mesocarp). Growth of the calli induced from the explants was found to be influenced by the type, concentration and ratio of...
