Conserved expression of a TASSELSEED2 homolog in the tapetum of the dioecious Silene latifolia and Arabidopsis thaliana.

Abstract

To investigate the genetics of male sex determination and stamen development in the dioecious plant Silene latifolia (white campion), male-specific transcripts were isolated from developing flowers by cDNA subtraction. One of the cDNAs identified, STA1, had high DNA and amino acid sequence homology to the male sex determining gene of Zea mays (maize… (More)
