The indeterminate gametophyte1 mutation in maize has been known to disrupt development of the female gametophyte. Mutant embryo sacs have abnormal numbers and behavior of micropylar and central cell nuclei, which result in polyembryony and elevated ploidy levels in the endosperm of developing kernels. In this study, we confirm abnormal nuclear behavior and present novel findings. In contrast to the normal form, there is no obvious polarity in two-nucleate embryo sacs or in the micropylar cells… CONTINUE READING
