Basic Information
CGSNL Gene Symbol PL
Gene Symbol Synonym Pl, Pl1
Gene Name Synonym Purple leaf, Purple leaf-1
Protein Name
Allele Pl-w, Pl-i, Pl-j
Chromosome No. 4
Explanation Make leaf blade, leaf sheath, leaf collar, auricles, ligule, node and internode purple. Pl-w and Pl-i are alleles at Pl locus. Pl-w makes leaf blade, leaf sheath, auricles, ligule, and pericarp purple. Pl-i makes leaf blade, leaf sheath, ligule and internode colored.
