Aquaporins influence seed dormancy and germination in response to stress

Plant,Cell,Env apr19Steven Footitt, Rachel Clewes, Mistianne Feeney, William E. Finch‐Savage, Lorenzo Frigerio

Aquaporins influence water flow in plants, yet little is known of their involvement in the water-driven process of seed germination. We therefore investigated their role in seeds in the laboratory and under field and global warming conditions. We propose that the different responses of the seed tonoplast intrinsic proteins contribute to mechanisms that influence dormancy status and the timing of germination under variable soil conditions.
