The transformation of anthers in the msca1 mutant of maize


In normal anther development in maize (Zea mays L), large hypodermal cells in anther primordia undergo a series of proscribed cell divisions to form an anther containing microsporogenous cells and three distinctive anther wall layers: the tapetum, the middle layer and the endothecium. In homozygous msca1 mutants of maize, stamen primordia are initiated… (More)
