Whether the caryopsis of barley is naked or covered is controlled by the Nud gene encoding an ethylene response factor (ERF) family transcription factor (TF) of the AP2/ERF TF superfamily that is involved in the lipid biosynthesis pathway. In covered barley, lipids on the surface of caryopses act as a glue for their tight adhesion with hulls. Separation of hulls in naked barley is due to the absence of surface lipids on caryopses. A natural deletion event of Nud was found to be the determinant… Expand
