A rice male-sterile mutant msp1-4 (MULTIPLE SPOROCYTE) with japonica cultivar '9522' background, was obtained in M(3) population treated with (60)Co gamma-ray. Results of genetic analysis indicated that the male-sterile phenotype was controlled by a single recessive locus. To map this locus, an F(2) population was constructed from the cross between the msp1-4 (japonica) and 'LongTeFu B' (indica). This locus was mapped between the two InDel markers, WY-4 and WY-8, with physical distance of 247 kb. A deletion with 10 base pairs between 758 bp and 767 bp in MSP1 open reading frame was confirmed by sequence analysis, which led to pre-termination of MSP1 translation. Phenotype analysis of msp1-4 indicated that it was similar to the msp1 mutant. To insight the expression change of rice anther developmental genes in this mutant, semi-quantitative RT-PCR analysis was carried out. The results showed that the expression level of rice UDT1 and GAMYB were reduced in msp1-4, implying that UDT1 and GAMYB are possibly the downstream genes of MSP1 gene in rice pollen development.
