Pollen grains of angiosperm plants represent a good model system for studies of chromatin structure and remodelling factors, but very little is known about the DNA methylation status of particular genes in pollen. In this study, we present an analysis of the DNA methylation patterns of the MROS1 gene, which is expressed in the late phases of pollen development in Silene latifolia (syn. Meladrium album). The genomic sequencing technique revealed similar DNA methylation patterns in leaves… CONTINUE READING
