Timing of the Maternal-to-Zygotic transition during Early Seed Development in Maize

Grimanelli, Daniel; Perotti, Enrico; Ramirez, Jorge; Leblanc, Olivier


In animals, early embryonic development is largely dependent on maternal transcripts synthesized during gametogenesis. Recent data in plants also suggest maternal control over early seed development, but the actual timing of zygotic genome activation is unclear. Here, we analyzed the timing of the matemal-to-zygotic transition during early Zea mays seed development. We show that for 16 genes expressed during early seed development, only maternally inherited alleles are detected during 3 d after...[Show more]
