Seed Coat Ruthenium Red Staining Assay
Authors:  Heather E. McFarlane, Delphine Gendre and Tamara L. Western, date: 04/05/2014, view: 14920, Q&A: 0
The goal of this protocol is to assay for defects in synthesis/secretion/release of seed coat mucilage by ruthenium red staining of mature whole seeds.

The mucilage secretory cells of the Arabidopsis seed coat synthesize and ...
