In flowering plants, development of the haploid male gametophytes (pollen grains) takes place in a specialized structure called the anther. Successful pollen development, and thus reproduction, requires high secretory activity in both anther tissues and pollen. In this paper, we describe a novel member of the eukaryotic type V subfamily (P(5)) of P-type ATPase cation pumps, the MALE GAMETOGENESIS IMPAIRED ANTHERS (MIA) gene. MIA protein is highly abundant in the endoplasmic reticulum and small… CONTINUE READING
