xs1 is a male-sterile rice mutant derived from a spontaneous mutation. The floret of the mutant, consisting of 6 stamens and 1 pistil, looks the same as that of the wild type except that the filaments are long and thin and the anthers are withered in white transparence. It is confirmed that xs1 is a no-pollen type of male-sterile mutant, for no pollen grains can be stained with I(2)-KI solution and the anther locules are always hollow. Anther transverse sections indicate that the mutant… CONTINUE READING
