Cytokinin Oxidase Regulates Rice Grain Production
Most agriculturally important traits are regulated by genes known as quantitative trait loci (QTLs) derived from natural allelic variations. We here show that a QTL that increases grain productivityExpand

GIBBERELLIN INSENSITIVE DWARF1 encodes a soluble receptor for gibberellin
Gibberellins (GAs) are phytohormones that are essential for many developmental processes in plants. It has been postulated that plants have both membrane-bound and soluble GA receptors; however, noExpand

Green revolution: A mutant gibberellin-synthesis gene in rice
The chronic food shortage that was feared after the rapid expansion of the world population in the 1960s was averted largely by the development of a high-yielding semi-dwarf variety of rice known asExpand

Loss of Function of a Rice brassinosteroid insensitive1 Homolog Prevents Internode Elongation and Bending of the Lamina Joint
Brassinosteroids (BRs) are plant growth–promoting natural products required for plant growth and development. Physiological studies have demonstrated that exogenous BR, alone or in combination withExpand

An Overview of Gibberellin Metabolism Enzyme Genes and Their Related Mutants in Rice1[w]
To enhance our understanding of GA metabolism in rice (Oryza sativa), we intensively screened and identified 29 candidate genes encoding the following GA metabolic enzymes using all available riceExpand

The ethylene response factors SNORKEL1 and SNORKEL2 allow rice to adapt to deep water
Living organisms must acquire new biological functions to adapt to changing and hostile environments. Deepwater rice has evolved and adapted to flooding by acquiring the ability to significantlyExpand

slender Rice, a Constitutive Gibberellin Response Mutant, Is Caused by a Null Mutation of the SLR1 Gene, an Ortholog of the Height-Regulating Gene GAI/RGA/RHT/D8
The rice slender mutant (slr1-1) is caused by a single recessive mutation and results in a constitutive gibberellin (GA) response phenotype. The mutant elongates as if saturated with GAs. In thisExpand

Rice plant development: from zygote to spikelet.
Rice is becoming a model plant in monocotyledons and a model cereal crop. For better understanding of the rice plant, it is essential to elucidate the developmental programs of the life cycle. ToExpand

Accumulation of Phosphorylated Repressor for Gibberellin Signaling in an F-box Mutant
Gibberellin (GA) regulates growth and development in plants. We isolated and characterized a rice GA-insensitive dwarf mutant,gid2. The GID2 gene encodes a putative F-box protein, which interactedExpand

The OsTB1 gene negatively regulates lateral branching in rice.
Although the shoot apical meristem (SAM) is ultimately responsible for post-embryonic development in higher plants, lateral meristems also play an important role in determining the final morphologyExpand
