The rice narrow leaf2 and narrow leaf3 loci encode WUSCHEL-related homeobox 3A (OsWOX3A) and function in leaf, spikelet, tiller and lateral root development.
· In order to understand the molecular genetic mechanisms of rice (Oryza sativa) organ development, we studied the narrow leaf2 narrow leaf3 (nal2 nal3; hereafter nal2/3) double mutant, whichExpand

ZEBRA-NECROSIS, a thylakoid-bound protein, is critical for the photoprotection of developing chloroplasts during early leaf development.
The zebra-necrosis (zn) mutant of rice (Oryza sativa) produces transversely green/yellow-striped leaves. The mutant phenotype is formed by unequal impairment of chloroplast biogenesis beforeExpand

Reduced activity of ATP synthase in mitochondria causes cytoplasmic male sterility in chili pepper
Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) is a maternally inherited trait characterized by the inability to produce functional pollen. The CMS-associated protein Orf507 (reported as Orf456 in previousExpand

Selective fertilization with phosphite allows unhindered growth of cotton plants expressing the ptxD gene while suppressing weeds
Significance An increasing number of herbicide-resistant weeds are being reported in the United States, Argentina, and Brazil. This is becoming a global challenge for the production of several majorExpand

Phenotypic and Genotypic Analysis of Rice Lesion Mimic Mutants
Lesion mimic mutant (LMM) plants display spontaneous necrotic lesions on their leaves without any pathogenic infection. Specific rice LMMs designated as spotted leaf (spl) including spl1, spl3, spl4,Expand

Genes regulating gland development in the cotton plant
Summary In seeds and other parts of cultivated, tetraploid cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), multicellular groups of cells lysigenously form dark glands containing toxic terpenoids such as gossypolExpand

A survey of natural and ethyl methane sulfonate-induced variations of eIF4E using high-resolution melting analysis in Capsicum
Allele mining is a method used to find undiscovered natural variations or induced mutations in a plant, and has become increasingly important as more genomic information is available in plants. AExpand

RNAi-mediated Ultra-low gossypol cottonseed trait: performance of transgenic lines under field conditions.
Cottonseed remains a low-value by-product of lint production mainly due to the presence of toxic gossypol that makes it unfit for monogastrics. Ultra-low gossypol cottonseed (ULGCS) lines wereExpand

ptxD gene in combination with phosphite serves as a highly effective selection system to generate transgenic cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)
Key messageThis report demonstrates the usefulness of ptxD/phosphite as a selection system that not only provides a highly efficient and simple means to generate transgenic cotton plants, but alsoExpand

Characterization and genetic analysis of a low-temperature-sensitive mutant, sy-2, in Capsicum chinense
A temperature-sensitive mutant of Capsicum chinense, sy-2, shows a normal developmental phenotype when grown above 24°C. However, when grown at 20°C, sy-2 exhibits developmental defects, such asExpand
