Identification and characterization of double-stranded RNA associated with cytoplasmic male sterility in Vicia faba.

Abstract

The cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) trait of at least one line of Vicia faba plants is always associated with the presence of high molecular weight double-stranded RNA in the leaf tissue extracts. Subcellular fractions of leaf tissue from CMS and fertile maintainer plants were initially analyzed in an attempt to locate, identify, and characterize the… (More)
