Jump to: navigation, search

A layer found in some plant seeds that excretes enzymes used to promote embryonic growth. Gibberellin, a family of growth hormones, enters the aleurone Layer which induces the release of these enzymes. These promote the breakdown of starch into sugar that can be used by the embryo as energy.
