Although the molecular basis of carpel fusion in maize ovary development remains largely unknown, increasing evidence suggests a critical role of microRNAs (miRNAs). In this study, a combination of miRNA sequencing, degradome and physiological analyses was used to characterize carpel fusion development in maize ovaries showing incompletely (IFC) and(More)
We have isolated a new mutation in maize, incompletely fused carpels (ifc), which results in an open stylar canal on the ovary and an incomplete pericarp at the top of the kernel. The maize ovary derives from the fusion of three carpels; however, the molecular networks regulating maize carpel fusion remain largely unclear. In this study, RNA sequencing(More)
Maize is an important crop worldwide. Its grain yield is susceptible to decrease under conditions of abiotic stress, such as shade in subtropical and temperate zones. The genetic basis of shade tolerance has not been determined in maize. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are known to play critical roles in plant stress responses, including responses to environmental(More)
