OsRR24/LEPTO1 type-B response regulator is essential for rice meiosis (Plant Cell)

In rice, successful completion of meiosis to generate haploid cells is essential for seed production and propagation. This process is complex, requires precise regulation, and produces visible changes in the structure of chromosomes. In this paper, Zhao et al., characterize a sterile rice mutant with defects in leptotene, an early stage of prophase I in […]

Plant Science Research Weekly: December 21st
