Basic Information
CGSNL Gene Symbol OPS
Gene Symbol Synonym ops
Gene Name Synonym open hull sterile
Protein Name
Chromosome No. 5
Explanation Due to an abnormal shape of palea and lemma, they are open before anthesis. After anthesis, there are many spikelets incompletely closed causing sterility. PO:0009038; palea ; PO:0009037; lemma ; PO:0006318; floret (sensu Poaceae). GRO:0007148; 05-booting stage ; GRO:0007044; 06-heading stage.
Trait Class Reproductive organ - Pollination, fertilization, fertility - Other sterilities
