A Novel MYB-Related Gene from Arabidopsis thaliana Expressed in Developing Anthers Academic Article uri icon


  • A novel MYB-like gene (AtMYB103) was isolated from a genomic library of Arabidopsis. Plants transgenic for chimeric AtMYB103 promoter/GUS genes expressed the enzyme in early anthers. In situ hybridization of flower sections showed a high level of AtMYB103 mRNA in the tapetum and middle layer of developing anthers.
