Environmental growing conditions affect groat percentages. As development proceeds, the level of miR156 decreases, ultimately leading to downregulation of GL15 and the development of adult leaf characteristics. in rows or are tied up in bundles. Each spikelet contains two florets enclosed by two leaf-like organs called glumes. asp1‐5, and asp1‐6. It is possible that HDAC activity is lowered in asp1 because the ability of the transcriptional co‐repressors to recruit HDAC is reduced overall due to loss of function of ASP1. The groat is that portion of the oat kernel after removal of the hull (Figure 6). The basal region of the spikelets is magnified in (c) and (i). The 1,000-grain weight was hardly influenced by the addition or removal of Si regardless of the growth stage. In turn, each spikelet pair meristem produces spikelet meristems. ASP1 was expressed strongly in the outer layer of the meristem, especially the L1 layer, the presumptive region of organ primordia initiation in the meristem, and the apical region of organ primordia. Panicle exsertion (PE) is an important morphological trait that is closely associated with spikelet fertility and grain yield. Learn more. Fine mapping and candidate gene analysis of a novel PANICLE AND SPIKELET DEGENERATION gene in rice. Examination of the RNA and protein expression patterns of IDS1 in ts4 compared to wild type indicates that miR172e likely controls IDS1 activity primarily by translational repression (Chuck et al., 2007b), similar to how miR172 is postulated to function in Arabidopsis to regulate AP2. Developmental transcriptional profiling reveals key insights into Triticeae reproductive development, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-313X.2011.04872.x, http://www.shigen.nig.ac.jp/rice/oryzabase/top/top.jsp, TPJ_4872_sm_legendSupplementaryMaterial.doc. Arrowheads indicate axillary buds or axillary shoots. It is worth noting that some of the TFs identified so far, which appear to regulate GRF transcription in Arabidopsis are involved in floral meristem identity and flower patterning (Pajoro et al., 2014; Schiessl et al., 2014; Winter et al., 2011; Yant et al., 2010). We observed that the BM and the SM are often prematurely terminated as meristem‐like structures in the early stages of inflorescence and spikelet development. rg, Figure 1. 2007). The widths of the shoot apical. Genes offering the potential for designing yield-related traits in rice. These results clearly indicate that the supply of Si during the reproductive stage is most important for plant growth. (e) Axillary bud growth in seedlings treated with TSA in liquid culture. Some primary and secondary branches became bleached and stopped growing. Here, we showed that mutations in the ASP1 gene caused pleiotropic phenotypes in rice development, such as a disorganized branching pattern, aberrant spikelet morphology, disarrangement of phyllotaxy, and release of axillary bud dormancy. In Arabidopsis, TPL has been shown to be involved in auxin signaling (Szemenyei et al., 2008). (m–q) asp1‐1 spikelets arrested at various developmental stages. International Journal of Molecular Sciences. (c) Subcellular localization of ASP1. Stem cell maintenance is regulated by a negative feedback loop of WUS and CLAVATA (CLV) genes. A dominant‐negative mutation of TPL (tpl‐1) causes severe defects in embryo development: for example, a shoot pole is transformed into a second root pole in the tpl‐1 embryo (Long et al., 2002, 2006). Functional diversification of the two C‐class genes. In both the inflorescence and spikelet, asp1 mutants showed pleiotropic phenotypes, which are thought to be associated with fate of the reproductive meristems. The rel2 mutation enhances branching of the ear in ra1 and ra2 mutants, suggesting that this mutation converts the determinate fate of the spikelet pair meristem into indeterminate BM fate. 2012). Oat kernel on the left has been split longitudinally to reveal the approximate size and location of the major tissues. To identify the T‐DNA insertion positions in asp1‐5 and asp1‐6, primers listed in Table S2 were used. In the seedling stage, ASP1 transcript was detected in leaf primordia from the P0 stage, but no or very weak expression was detected in the SAM (Figure 6h). 2. Grasses produce florets on a structure called a spikelet, and variation in the number and arrangement of both branches and spikelets contributes to the great diversity of grass inflorescence architecture. We thank K. Ohsawa‐Yamamoto for technical assistance and technicians at the Institute for Sustainable Agro‐Ecosystem Services of the University of Tokyo for cultivation of rice. One nucleotide (G) at an exon–intron junction was changed to A in asp1‐2. miR172 also influences floral organ identity as evidenced by failure of carpel abortion from the male inflorescence. Spikelets are the basic inflorescence units in rice and typically consist of a flower of interlocked lemma and palea forming a husk, two lodicules, six stamens, and one pistil. When Si was removed during the reproductive stage, the dry weights of straw and grain decreased by 20 and 50% respectively, compared with those of plants cultured in the solution with Si throughout the growth period (Figure 7.5). Characterization and Gene Mapping of non-open hull 1 (noh1) Mutant in Rice (Oryza sativa L.). Neofunctionalization of the Btr1 and Btr2 genes then conferred new roles in determining the development of AZ. However, tedious manual intervention is necessary in some parts of image processing. Procedures that increase gap junction conductance (e.g., reduced extracellular calcium) tend to increase the number of dye-coupled neurons. As discussed above, meristem fate is affected by asp1 mutation in rice, but the effects were much milder than the meristem defects observed in sparse inflorescence mutants of maize. In other cases, the spikelet consisted of one lemma, one elongated sterile lemma and one rudimentary glume (Figure 3o). In ids1 mutants, the spikelet meristem is indeterminate in that it is not completely consumed when it gives rise to two floral meristems; instead, the spikelet meristem persists between the florets and produces two additional florets. (b) Junction between the embryo and endosperm. A number of studies have reported mutants with sparse inflorescences in maize. (k) Basal region of the shoot, where the crown roots initiate (arrowheads). Occasionally tertiary kernels develop, but are smaller than the primary and secondary kernels. St Paul, MN: American Association of Cereal Chemists, with permission. Although single mutants of sid1 are largely aphenotypic, sid1 enhances the ids1 phenotype; ids1 sid1 double mutants fail to initiate floral meristems and instead produce multiple bract-like organs in their place (Chuck et al., 1998, 2008). Early in development, the level of miR156 is high which results in low levels of the SPL genes and miR172, and high levels of GL15. If the gap junctions were located at remote sites on the dendrites of pyramidal cells, then the electrical-filtering properties of the dendrites would result in slower kinetic properties of the spikelets. Spikelet development was roughly synchronized within a primary branch in wild‐type, whereas various developmental stages of spikelet and branch were observed within a primary branch in asp1‐1 (Figure 4e,f). Abstract: Spikelet number per panicle (SPP), differentiated spikelet number per panicle (D-SPP), and prefl owering aborted spikelet number per panicle (A-SPP) were examined in fi ve rice cultivars at three planting densities (HD; high, MD; medium, LD; low planting density) in the field condition. In floret the grain is enclosed between two pales (the palea, from the inside, and the lemma, from the outside). Ma et al. greater in IR36 and Hinohikari than in Akenohoshi and Takanari. 4). Background: Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is a staple food crop worldwide. L.-F. Li, K.M. Article Google Scholar Bread wheat ( Triticum aestivum ) inflorescences, or spikes, are characteristically unbranched and normally bear one spikelet per rachis node. Genome-wide analysis of Gro/Tup1 family corepressors and their responses to hormones and abiotic stresses in maize. These spatiotemporal programmed cellular processes con- Inflorescence architecture and spikelet formation are unique features of grasses such as rice, maize and wheat. Cultivated barleys belong to the subspecies vulgare, whereas the wild forms of barley belong to the subspecies spontaneum. The position of spikelets on a panicle viz. TPL plays a role in auxin signaling by directly binding to IAA12/BODENLOS (BDL), and by repressing transcription of AUXIN RESPONSE FACTOR5 (ARF5)/MONOPTEROS (MP) (Szemenyei et al., 2008). Further studies on rice ASP1 and maize REL2 should reveal the common and distinct roles of these transcriptional co‐repressors in grasses, and provide a deeper understanding of their function in plant development. In asp1‐2, axillary shoots grew from not only the lower nodes (arrows) but also the upper nodes (arrowheads). On the other hand, panicle nitrogen fertilizer regulates spikelet development by regulating the temporal and spatial distribution of auxin and CTK in rice young panicle (Gu et al., 2018; Zhang et al., 2019), which shows that plant hormones play a very important role in nitrogen fertilizer regulation of rice spikelet development. There are ~12 PBs in a panicle; each PB bears several SBs and spikelets, and SBs also bear several spikelets. Arrowheads indicate the position of the bract. These observations suggest that dormancy of the AM is de‐repressed in asp1‐2. Thin kernels with high hull content and low test weight generally result from dry conditions after heading. In some asp1‐1 spikelets, the sterile lemma had a chimeric surface comprising the suface of the sterile lemma and the lemma or a similar surface to that of the lemma in wild‐type (Figure 3d‐f, j, k). The ACTIN1 gene was used as a control, and the primers used are listed in Table S2. Its yield and quality are affected by its tillering pattern and spikelet development. (3) DAPI staining of the nucleus. LeBeau, in Encyclopedia of Neuroscience, 2009. A number of high-yielding japonica rice strains, characterized by an erect panicle (EP) of their architecture, have been released as commercial varieties in China. Outlines of the rudimentary glume are shown by dotted pink lines in (n) and (o). branch meristems (Zhang and Yuan, 2014). To determine the transcript levels of OsIAA20, RNA was isolated from the basal part of a 7‐day‐old seedling using TRIsure reagent (Bioline, http://www.nippongenetics.eu/) and treated with DNase I (Takara, http://www.takara‐bio.com/) to remove genomic DNA. Dark and light green indicate primary and secondary branches, respectively. The full text of this article hosted at iucr.org is unavailable due to technical difficulties. Groat weight of the primary kernel is higher than the groat weight of either secondary or tertiary kernels. Targeted downregulation of OsGRF1 by RNA interference resulted in small leaves and a delay in flowering, indicating that OsGRF is involved in regulating not only organ growth and development at the vegetative and reproductive phase, but also may be involved in flowering time regulation in rice (Luo et al., 2005).
