Gene: Allele: Locus: AGI code:

EMBL accession:


No sporophytic effect.No reduction in the transmission through the female.No or almost no transmission through the male (transmission efficiency from 0% to 1.7%).Fail to transmit the marker through pollen but produce pollen of normal size, cellular morphology and nuclear composition which defines these mutants as progamic phase mutants.Female transmission is normal and no aborted seeds or failed ovules are observed.
