  3. Aubert M, Coventry S, Shirley N, Betts N, Würschum T, Burton R, et al. Differences in hydrolytic enzyme activity accompany natural variation in mature aleurone morphology in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). Sci Rep. 2018;8:11025 pubmed publisher
    ..The results reveal a link between molecular pathways influencing early aleurone development and increased levels of free ?-amylase enzyme, potentially highlighting the aleurone as a repository of free ?-amylase at grain maturity. ..

    ..Reduced SQN expression levels in Col-0 correlate with transposon insertions adjoining the transcriptional start site, which may contribute to stem cell maintenance in other ZLL-independent accessions. ..
