  • Key message
    • The ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter OsABCG3 is essential for pollen development in rice.
    • Here we identified two osabcg3 allelic mutants and demonstrated that OsABCG3 was required for pollen development in rice
    • The expression of some genes required for pollen wall formation was examined in osabcg3 mutants
    • Base on the genetic and cytological analyses, OsABCG3 was proposed to transport the tapetum-produced materials essential for pollen wall formation
    • OsABCG3 encodes a half-size ABCG transporter localized on the plasma membrane
    • Loss-function of OsABCG3 caused abnormal degradation of the tapetum
