Promoters of two anther-specific genes confer organ-specific gene expression in a stage-specific manner in transgenic systems


Differential screening of a stage-specific cDNA library of Indica rice has been used to identify two genes expressed in pre-pollination stage panicles, namely OSIPA and OSIPK coding for proteins similar to expansins/pollen allergens and calcium-dependent protein kinases (CDPK), respectively. Northern analysis and in situ hybridizations indicate that OSIPA… (More)
