Expression of many proteinases has been documented during anther development. Although their roles are not completely understood, their inhibition could possibly result in impairment of anther development leading to male sterility. We proposed that such an impairment of anther development can be engineered in plants resulting in male sterile plants that can(More)
The catalytic role of various inert solid supports on acceleration of alcohol fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated. The enhanced rate of alcohol production was dependent on the nature of the support as well as on the amount used. Among all the tested supports, chitosan flakes showed the maximum yield of alcohol (93% of theoretical(More)
HetR gene is a key regulator of heterocyst differentiation in filamentous cyanobacteria. It has been previously isolated and characterized from heterocystous cyanobacterium like Anabaena that has intercalary heterocysts and from non-heterocystous cyanobacteria like Trichodesmium and Symploca PCC 8002. This study reports the characterization of hetR gene(More)
T-urf13, a well-documented cms-associated gene from maize, has been shown to render methomyl sensitivity to heterologous systems like rice, yeast and bacteria when expressed constitutively. Since these transgenic plants were fertile, it was hypothesized that T-urf13 gene if expressed in anthers may result in male sterility that could be used for hybrid seed(More)
