  • Publication number: 20180258445
    Abstract: Nucleotide sequences, amino acid sequences, and an associated promoter sequence are useful in methods of controlling male fertility in plants. Recombinant expression cassettes, vectors, plant cells, and plants comprise a disclosed nucleotide sequence and may encode a disclosed amino acid sequence. The recombinant expression cassettes are useful in controlling fertility, especially male fertility of annual crops. The promoter is useful in driving expression of an operably-linked heterologous polynucleotide. Constructs comprising homology to the promoter sequence are useful for downregulation of a polynucleotide associated with the promoter.
