- The physics of organoids: a biophysical approach to understanding organogenesis
Summary: This Spotlight article discusses some interesting applications of physics in organoid research, from computational modeling of organoid biology to understanding mechanical aspects of organ development.
- Endosperm turgor pressure decreases during early Arabidopsis seed development
Summary: Arabidopsis endosperm turgor pressure can be calculated from whole-seed indentation measurements, is elevated during seed expansion and decreases at the onset of cellularisation.
- Mechanical stress mediated by both endosperm softening and embryo growth underlies endosperm elimination in Arabidopsis seeds
Summary: Elimination of the Arabidopsis endosperm during seed development involves a developmental programmed cell death process requiring cell wall modifications and mechanical stresses imposed by embryo growth.
