[2004]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Morphology of Flowering - 3 - Question 4

In campylotropous ovule, the body is curved but the embryo sac is straight eg. Capsella. In Anatropous, the body of ovule is inverted and gets fused with funiculus along its whole length on one side (most of the angiosperms). In orthotropous condition the body of ovule lies straight and upright over the funicle. e.g. Piperaceae, Polygonaceae.

The aleurone layer in maize grain is specially rich in  

[2003]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Morphology of Flowering - 3 - Question 5

The aleurone layer in maize grain is specially rich in proteins.
Aleurone (from Greek aleuron, flour) is a protein found in the endosperm of many seeds. It forms the outermost layer of the seed coat in some grains. During seed germination, hydrolysis in the seed causes the aleurone cells to break down into amino acids. Once triggered by hormones released from the embryo the aleurone synthesises enzymes in order to break down the starchy endosperm supplying sugars to drive the growth of roots and the acrospire. 

Aleurones can have two different morphological features, Homogenous and Heterogenous. The homogenous aleurone is consisted of similar protein bodies (e.g. Phaseolus vulgaris) while the heterogenous aleurone consisted different shape and type of proteins covered with a membrane (e.g. Ricinus communis).
