    Rye B chromosomes and heat tolerance in microsporogenesis

    Rye supernumerary (B) chromosomes possess an accumulation mechanism involving the subtelomeric domain enriched by B chromosome specific DNA sequence families, D1100 and E3900. Pereira et al. show that presence of rye B chromosomes may protect pollen mother cells at meiosis against heat stress induced damage. Heat resulted in equal up-regulation of heat shock protein Hsp101 […] More
