Seed mucilage polysaccharide production, storage and release in Plantago ovata is strikingly different to that of the model plant Arabidopsis. We have used microscopy techniques to track the development of mucilage secretory cells and demonstrate that mature P. ovata seeds do not have an outer intact cell layer within which the polysaccharides surround internal columellae. Instead, dehydrated mucilage is spread in a thin homogenous layer over the entire seed surface and upon wetting expandsdoi:10.1038/s41598-020-68685-w pmid:32678191 fatcat:vypm3vooubfqbjchxjqxkmnvpu
