In order to study gene silencing in a monocot system we introduced a waxy (Wx) gene into rice. In the pollen grain of the transgenic wild-type plants, two types of Wx gene silencing were observed: Type I in which all the pollen grains showed the mutant (wx) phenotype, and Type II in which 50% of the pollen grains showed the wx phenotype. Analysis of Wx gene expression in the progeny of selfing and outcrossing indicated that Wx gene silencing was meiotically transmitted to the offspring. The… CONTINUE READING
