The sorghum line IS1112C carries a male sterility-inducing cytoplasm when introduced into nuclear backgrounds that do not include fertility restoration genes. An mtDNA chimeric configuration resulting from recombination/duplication with atp9 resulted in the formation of orf107, a chimeric open reading frame. Transcription of orf107 is driven by three(More)
RNA editing and cytoplasmic male sterility are two important phenomena in higher plant mitochondria. To determine whether correlations might exist between the two, RNA editing in different tissues of Sorghum bicolor was compared employing reverse transcription-PCR and subsequent sequence analysis. In etiolated shoots, RNA editing of transcripts of plant(More)
