Photoperiod-sensitive male sterility (PSMS) is a valuable germplasm for hybrid rice breeding. Recently, we cloned pms3, a locus controlling PSMS, which encodes a long non-coding RNA called LDMAR required for normal male fertility of the rice plant under long-day conditions. Increased methylation in the promoter of LDMAR in the PSMS rice (Nongken 58S) relative to the wild-type (Nongken 58) reduced expression of LDMAR leading to male sterility under long-day conditions. In this study, we… CONTINUE READING
