  • Key message
    • The wfsl1 displayed white fine stripe leaves since tillering stage and abnormal chloroplast structure
    • RNA-seq analysis revealed that chloroplast development and photosynthesis genes were significantly affected in wfsl1 plants
    • Levels of WFSL1 and chloroplast encoded proteins were decreased in wfsl1 mutants via western blot analysis
    • Compared with WT, wfsl1 exhibits lower Chl content and defective in biogenesis of chloroplast ribosomes, which resulted in reduced grain yield
    • Taken together, our results show that WFSL1 is critical for chloroplast development, ribosome biogenesis, and light energy utilization, finally affects grain yield
    • Map-based cloning and Bioinformatic analysis indicated that WFSL1 on chromosome 1 contains an "A" to "T" substitution in protein coding region, and encodes a putative metal-dependent phosphohydrolase with HD domain at the N-terminus
    • Here, we isolated and characterized the stripe3 (st3) mutant which exhibited white-striped leaves with reduced chlorophyll content and abnormal chloroplast development during the seedling stage, but gradually produced nearly normal green leaves as it developed
