Explanation lax-1: all lateral spikelets are absent, but fertile terminal spikelets are produced. lax-2: formation of panicle branches and spikekelets is severely reduced. Lateral spilelets are occasionally produced in lax-4 and lax-5. LAX locus is located on chromosome 1 in the region of 82 kb stradding marker C191A. Q7XAQ6. Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor. AB115668, Axillary meristem formation. orthologue of maize BARRENSTALK1 (BA1).
