The transcription factor Brn-3.1, is expressed in the inner ear hair cells throughout life and is necessary for the development of these cells. Mutant mice in which the Brn-3.1 encoding region has been deleted have no identifiable hair cells, greatly reduced numbers of spiral ganglion cells and are deaf. A mutation in the human homologue of this gene has(More)
Leaf morphology is closely associated with cell division. In rice, mutations in Narrow leaf 1 (NAL1) show narrow leaf phenotypes. Previous studies have shown that NAL1 plays a role in regulating vein patterning and increasing grain yield in indica cultivars, but its role in leaf growth and development remains unknown. In this report, we characterized two(More)
