Cytoplasmic effects on plant performance are well-documented and result from the intimate interaction between organellar and nuclear gene products. In plants, deletions, mutations, or chimerism of mitochondrial genes are often associated with deleterious phenotypes, as well as economically important traits such as cytoplasmic male sterility used to produce(More)
Pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) 336 was identified as the candidate gene for Paternal Sorting of Mitochondria ( Psm ), a nuclear locus that affects the predominant mitochondria transmitted to progenies. Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) is a useful plant to study organellar-nuclear interactions because its organelles show differential transmission, maternal for(More)
