Unlike animals, whose gametes are direct products of meiosis, plant meiotic products undergo additional rounds of mitosis, developing into multicellular haploid gametophytes that produce egg or sperm cells. The complex development of gametophytes requires extensive expression of the genome, with DNA-dependent RNA polymerases I, II, and III being the key enzymes for nuclear gene expression. We show that loss-of-function mutations in genes encoding key subunits of RNA polymerases I, II, or III… CONTINUE READING
