The endosperm nurtures embryo development in the seed and stores seed reserves in cereal species, and undergoes a distinctive
developmental mode controlled by elaborate epigenetic pathways. Endosperm development is coordinated with embryogenesis and
the seed teguments leading to harmonious seed development.
