Western blot/RT-PCR anther development up-regulated N/A Overexpression of Zm401p10 in maize retarded tapetal degeneration and caused microspore abnormalities. The Zm401 gene is one of the major components of the molecular network regulating maize anther development and male fertility, and that Zm401p10 is expressed from the longest ORF of the gene. Zm401p10 plays a major role in pollen development. Overexpression of Zm401p10 in maize resulted in several severe phenotypes, including retardation of tapetum degeneration, accompanied by pollen abortion or pollen grains with low viability. These data suggest that Zm401p10 acts within the tapetum to promote normal pollen development and postmeiotic tapetal degradation.the overexpression of Zm401p10 did not affect ear development or fertilisation. Zm401p10 might play a role in guiding normal early anther development by maintaining the transcription of cysteine proteinases. Zm401p10 overexpression might abolish tapetum flavonoid biosynthesis and lead to male sterility. 10.1071/FP08187 PLNlncRbase
