Protein Name ARGONAUTE 7
Allele shl4-1, shl4-2, sho2
Chromosome No. 3
Explanation EF486281. AB353924. Q75HC2. In embryogenesis, shoot apical meristem is not differentiated. Coleoptile and epiblast are lost. Scutellum and radicle are normal. Expression of homeobox gene, OSH1 is normal. Morphology of embryo of the mutant is the same as shl1 or shl2. GRO:0007044; 06-heading stage ; GRO:0007042; 08-dough stage ; GRO:0007045; 09-mature grain stage ; GRO:0007046; 07-milk stage. a predicted lethal-phenotype gene in Lloyd et al. 2015. TO:0006064: rolled leaf.
