Genetic analysis and high-resolution mapping of a premature senescence gene Pse(t) in rice (Oryza sativa L.).


A rice mutant, designated pse(t) (premature senescence, tentatively), was isolated from a T-DNA-inserted transgenic population. Senescence advanced more markedly in pse(t) than in wild-type ('Zhonghua 11', japonica) plants. Genetic analysis of pse(t) revealed that the premature senescence mutation was controlled by a single recessive nuclear gene, but that… (More)
