Understanding the genetic mechanism underlying rice leaf-shape development is crucial for optimizing rice configuration and achieving high yields; however, little is known about leaf abaxial curling. We isolated a rice transferred DNA (T-DNA) insertion mutant, BY240, which exhibited an abaxial leaf curling phenotype that co-segregated with the inserted(More)
Gama-glutamylcysteine synthetase (GCS) is a rate-limiting enzyme in GSH biosynthesis. The GCS gene has been cloned in Arabidopsis thaliana and other plants, but has still not been reported in rice. From rice mutant population generated from T-DNA insertion, we cloned the rice GCS gene from mutant L395 by T-DNA tag cloning method, and named it OsGCS (Genbank(More)
