Transgenic hairy root system is important in several recalcitrant plants, where Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated plant transformation and generation of transgenic plants are problematic. Jute (Corchorus spp.), the major fibre crop in Indian subcontinent, is one of those recalcitrant plants where in vitro tissue culture has provided a little success, and(More)
Anther development leading to pollen maturation, anther dehiscence and pollen dispersal depends upon the precise timing of programmed cell death (PCD) in specified anther tissues. The PCD necessitates a properly tuned transcriptional regulation of some crucial genes. However, the detailed genetic regulation of this PCD in rice anther is yet to be(More)
The GS3, a major quantitative trait locus (QTL) for grain length and weight and a minor QTL for grain width in rice has been reported to encode a transmembrane protein that acts as a negative regulator of grain size. On the basis of different mutations, 4 different types of GS3 alleles have been documented so far. In this study, we report the evidence of a(More)
The biosynthetic pathway of tetrapyrrole is under stringent regulation in living systems. Heme, one of the products of this branched pathway is well known to regulate the pathway through feedback inhibition. Since the accumulation of intermediates of tetrapyrrole biosynthetic pathway is found to be cytotoxic and inducer of plant programmed cell death(More)
