Discovery of Key Genetic Sequence Essential for Plant Reproduction

Thale cress

A research group led by Associate Professor Ryushiro Kasahara, PhD, at Nagoya University in Japan, has identified a genetic sequence in thale cress that is essential for plant reproduction. As this region is found in virtually all plant species, it is expected to contribute to future cross-breeding between plant species. The results were published on May 8, 2023 in Frontiers in Plant Biology. The open-access article is titled “Discovery of a Cis-Regulatory Element SaeM Involved in Dynamic Regulation of Synergid-Specific MYB98.”
