Studies on multi-layer aleurone mutants in cereals and their nutritional significance

Ronald Chun Wai Yu
Aleurone cells in the cereal bran fraction store the greatest amount of nutritional components encompassing dietary fibre, phenolic compounds, antioxidants, minerals, phytate, B vitamins and lipid. I observed a substantial enhancement in these nutrients in a novel rice mutant thick aleurone 2 (ta2) possessing a multi-layer aleurone - from about two cells to 12 cells thick. Histological assay of ta2 showed that the aleurone cell structure and tissue organization remained similar to wild-type characteristics. Nutritional...
