  • Genbank accession number
  • Key message
    • Here we report that decreased expression of OsPDCD5 caused by antisense technology could induce pollen sterility in photoperiod-sensitive rice
    • Constitutive expression of OsPDCD5 from the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S promoter induced programmed cell death (PCD) in transgenic rice
    • Down-regulation of the OsPDCD5 gene induced photoperiod-sensitive male sterility in rice
    • In F1 hybrids made from transgenic plants with antisense-OsPDCD5 and japonica rice varieties, lower transcript inhibition could restore fertility, under certain photoperiod and temperatures
    • OsPDCD5, is an ortholog to mammalian programmed cell death 5 gene
    • ) programmed cell death 5 (OsPDCD5) gene in rice plant
    • Overexpression of the OsPDCD5 gene induces programmed cell death in rice
