  • Key message
    • Quantitative RT-PCR and GUS staining analyses exhibited that OsPK1 was expressed mainly in leaf mesophyll cells, phloem companion cells in stems, and cortical parenchyma cells in roots
    • Here, we identified a novel rice dwarf mutant, designated as ospk1, showing dwarfism, panicle enclosure, reduced seed set, and outgrowth of axillary buds from culm nodes
    • The contents of glucose and fructose were markedly accumulated in flag leaf blade and panicle of ospk1
    • Downregulation of OsPK1, a cytosolic pyruvate kinase, by T-DNA insertion causes dwarfism and panicle enclosure in rice
    • The sucrose level in panicle of ospk1 was decreased by approximately 84%
