CGSNL Gene Symbol RF3
Gene Symbol Synonym Rf3* (R2, Rf2), Rf2, R2, Rf3, Rf-3
Gene Name Synonym Pollen fertility restoration-3
Protein Name
Chromosome No. 1
Explanation additive. Fertility restoration (WA cytoplasm). duplicate. Fertility restoration for WA cytoplasm, Pollen fertility restoration for WA cytoplasm. PO:0009066; anther. Four genes viz. mitochondrial-processing peptidase subunit alpha (Os01g0191500), pollen-specific protein (Os01g0192600), and two pentatricopeptide (PPR) genes, (Os01g0197450; Os01g0205200) were considered as candidate genes in the Rf3 locus (Suresh et al. 2012).
