this chemical compound is found in the integument of the seed
Hosts may be infected via the integument or via the gut epithelium.
During development of the ovule, the inner of the two integuments disappears, while the outer integument differentiates into different layers of the seed coat.
The integument is a layer of tissue found in all seeds; it is produced by the parent plant, and develops into the seed coat.
The outer integument remains two cell layers thick throughout development and does not contribute to the micropyle.
Almost all early integumentary systems have some kind of laminar bone or cartilage as a base layer.
Legumes possess highly differentiated seed coats that arise from the inner and outer integuments of the ovule.
As a result, their integumentary system may be compromised.
Pigmentary effectors enable crustaceans to display rapidly reversible integumental color changes and retinal screening pigment movements.
The integumental wounds were easily detected on the body of infested bee pupae by vital staining with Trypan blue.
