Mitotype-specific sequences related to cytoplasmic male sterility in Oryza species

Plant mitochondrial genomes contain a large number of mitotype-specific sequences (MSS) which establish a mitochondrial genome structure distinct from other mitotypes. In rice, nine mitochondrial genomes have been sequenced, which provides us with the possibility of characterizing the MSS of rice and probing their relationship to cytoplasmic male sterility… CONTINUE READING
