Xyloglucan (amyloid) formation in the cotyledons of Tropaeolum majus L. seeds

Hoth, A. ; Blaschek, W. ; Franz, Gerhard


Mature seeds of Tropaeolum majus L. contain the cell wall polysaccharide xyloglucan (amyloid), protein and lipid as storage substances. The transitory occurrence of starch during the process of seed development could be substantiated. [U-14C]-labelled xylose, glucose and glucuronic acid were fed to ripening seeds and the incorporation of radioactivity into xyloglucan, starch and the sugar ...
