Use in Literature CotyledonsIt can be shown that plants most widely different in habit and general appearance, and having strongly marked differences in every part of the flower, even in the pollen, in the fruit, and in the cotyledons, can be crossed.ndash;Charles Darwin in On the Origin of Species.The former sees a tree in all its glory, where the latter sees an exogen with a pair of cotyledons.ndash;John Fiske in The Unseen World and Other Essays.The natural system, as finally propounded by them, is based on the number of cotyledons, the structure of the seed, and the insertion of the stamens.ndash;Henry Smith Williams in A History of Science, vol 2. Nonfiction Usage Patent UsageEarly seed 5' regulatory sequence: Patented by Colleen G. Santino and Timothy W. Conner on August 1, 1996. Abstract: A cotyledon-enhanced 5' regulatory sequence obtainable from soybean that strongly drives gene expression in cotyledons throughout seed development is provided. Also provided are recombinant DNA constructs comprising this 5' regulatory sequence for transformation of plants cells and the production of transgenic plants, as well as an intron and 3' non-coding region useful in modulating gene expression in transformed plant cells.Laundry And/or Fabric Care Compositions Comprising Crude Cotyledon Extracts: Patented by Mary V. Barnabas, Kotikanyadanam Sreekrishna and Johan Smets on July 26, 2000. Abstract: Laundry, fabric care and/or color care compositions containing crude cotyledon extract from the family Fabaceae are claimed. The extract can be obtained from indoor or outdoor grown mung bean cotyledons.Method for soybean transformation and regeneration: Patented by Maud A. Hinchee and Dannette Connor-Ward on February 4, 1995. Abstract: A method for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and regeneration of soybean is disclosed. The method utilizes a cotyledon explant which is prepared by first removing the hypocotyl and then tearing the two cotyledons apart at the cotyledonary node. The explant may be inoculated with either a smear of the disarmed Agrobacterium vector or of liquid culture of the bacterium.Method of regeneration of Medicago sativa and expressing foreign DNA in same: Patented by Charisse M. Buising and Dwight Tomes on May 5, 1999. Abstract: The invention relates to improved transformation and regeneration of alfalfa, Medicago sativa. Regeneration and transformation of alfalfa is made possible by use of immature cotyledons of alfalfa. By using immature cotyledon tissue, it is possible to regenerate and transform varieties of alfalfa never before capable of regeneration and transformation.PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF GROUND MEAT ANALOG: Patented by Jeffree Lee and Laura Lee on March 1, 1989. Abstract: A simulated ground meat analog derived from sprouted whole grain kernels and the process for making it is disclosed. The sprouted grain kernels are soaked in water and sprouted until the cotyledons are approximately one half inch in length. The sprouted kernels are then ground and kneaded to a meat-like texture. Suitable meat-like flavors and nutritional supplements may then be added to produce a ground meat analog which closely resembles ground meat in taste, texture, and appearance.Promoter: Patented by Andrew James Greenland, Didier Rene Thomas and Ian Jepson on March 2, 1997. Abstract: A promoter comprising the DNA sequence of an oil seed rape cysteine protease gene promoter of class 1, 2 or 6 is described. The promoter may be used in an expression system for at least the tissue or tissues of a germinating seedling or developing grain or plant (e.g. in the root, cotyledons, leaves and stem). In a preferred embodiment, the expression system comprises a disrupter gene fused to a promoter according to the present invention.Transformation and Regeneration of Sunflower from Cotyledons: Patented by Gurdip Brar and Gail Roberts on February 12, 2002. Abstract: The present invention relates to improved methods for prod
