A detrimental mitochondrial-nuclear interaction causes cytoplasmic male sterility in rice. When the egg cells of one plant cannot be easily fertilised by the pollen grains from another, the scope for developing hybrids through crossing of parents from divergent genetic pools is restricted. The cytoplasmic and nuclear male sterility is limited by maintenance of multiple lines, partial and unstable male sterility and limited fertility restoring gene sources, all of which restrict the economic benefits of the hybrid 6.

The achievement of complete male-sterility in the female-parent and the restored-fertility in F1-hybrids are the major bottlenecks in the commercial hybrid seed production. Several restoration systems have been reported to redeem male fertility by inactivating the male sterility protein 1819degrading transcripts of the male sterility gene 141751 and site-specific recombination in the male sterility gene 8 The expression syetem Supplementary Fig.

Several approaches have been explored to limit self-fertilization in the female parent line for the development of an effective hybrid seed production system, such as emasculation manual narstar of male reproductive organschemical-induced male sterility, cytoplasmic and nuclear male sterility, and biotechnological approaches for pollen abortion. Nat Genet 45— Sstem using barnass site, you barsrar to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Transgenic Res 991— These would then be reviewed by both the subcommittee and the GEAC, before a final decision is taken.


Mol Breed 14— Fluorimetric Barnade assay was performed as previously described by Harstar weakly expressed in vegetative tissue resulted yield penalty in the plants Just as nothing calamitous has happened to us from ingesting Bt proteins all these years, there is eystem evidence of the Barnase, Barstar and Bar proteins being toxic to either humans or animals.

Structure of the transition state for unfolding of barnase analysed by a protein engineering procedure”. Interestingly in anther, tapetal layer remained intact with empty pollens in the pollen sac Fig. Infiltration was done in 2: UBIQ10 was used as an internal control. Relative expression was calculated from threshold cycle values Plant Sci— It is important to point out here that India annually imports over 3.

Error bars indicate standard deviation SD.

The control and plants showed normal growth and development except male sterility in transgenics arrows indicate the dying and detachment of flower that are unsuccessful in fertilization due to male sterility.

Plant Cell 17— Plant Mol Biol 76— Barnase catalyzes hydrolysis at diribonucleotide GpN sites. Hence, it is desirable to develop a hybrid seed system that is equipped with capabilities of complete pollen abortion in a biologically safe and tightly controlled manner, as well as efficient male fertility restoration in the F1 hybrid.

In control plants, bagging of a young inflorescence before anthesis results in normal seed setting Fig. The pollen viability of F1 was low, but the seed setting was found to be comparable to the control plants Fig. Proc Natl Acad Sci U. Barnase a portmanteau of “BActerial” “RiboNucleASE” is a bacterial protein that consists of amino acids and has ribonuclease activity.

Cell 68— barhase Error bars indicate SD. Protoplasma— The system gave several-fold enhancement of expression over the native tapetum-specific promoter Fig. The tightly bound complex between barnase and its inhibitor barstar.


The system can be deployed for hybrid seed production in agricultural crops.

DMH could just be the start, as the Barnase-Barstar system can enable the development of hybrids from a wide range of Indian and East European mustards. Several of the transgenic systems possess the male fertility—restoring constituent 8910111213141516 Plantlets of selected crosses were transferred into pots in a transgenic house. Characterization and Use of male sterility in hybrid rice breeding. The two most important residues involved in catalysis are Glu73 and His, which are both essential for enzymatic activity.

Pictures were adjusted using adobe paint NET software.

A syetem of biotechnological strategies have been deployed to restrict self—fertilization in plants 7. The transgenic lines showed considerably low pollen viability Fig. Split-gene system for hybrid wheat seed production.

The vacuole gets enlarged with demarked wall formation in stage 3 microspores in narnase of control Fig. Footnotes Author Contributions S. We successfully deployed this system to express the desired gene we earlier demonstrated for male sterility Arabidopsis BECLIN1 15which generates the complete male sterile parent by altering the tapetal degeneration program.

This is over and above the 30 lt imports of soyabean oil that is entirely GM.

Glu73 is the general base whilst His is the general acid. S1b-cand S3a-d. Like Liked by 1 person.

Samples were washed thrice in 0. This simplicity, in combination with its reversible folding transition, means that barnase has been extensively studied in order to understand how proteins fold.
