C-type cytoplasmic male sterile (CMS-C) line plays an important role in hybrid seed production in maize. However, mechanisms of pollen abortion and fertility restoration remain unclear. This study aimed to investigate the mechanisms of CMS-C pollen abortion and fertility restoration, particularly based on epigenetics, and to understand the relationship between male fertility performance and DNA methylation status. Methylation-sensitive amplification polymorphism (MSAP) technique was conducted… CONTINUE READING
