Basic Information
CGSNL Gene Symbol BC3
Gene Symbol Synonym bc3, bc-3, OsDRP2B, DRP2B
Gene Name Synonym brittle culm3, brittle culm 3, brittle culm-3, dynamin-related protein 2B
Chromosome No. 2
Explanation A brittle or soft culm. Rather short height and imperfect emergence of panicles. The brittleness of culm and panicle axis of this mutant is not so distinct as that of bc1 and bc2.
