Figure 2. Tissue-specific peroxidase activity during cress seed germination.

(A) Germination kinetics of cress seeds in continuous light at 18 °C in medium without (CON = control) or with 10 µM ABA added; the percentage of endosperm rupture was scored over time.

(B) and (C) Peroxidase activity of protein extracts from micropylar endosperm caps (B) and radicles (C) dissected at different points during the germination process after imbibition in medium without (CON) or with 10 µM ABA added. Means ±SE of at least three biological replicates are presented
