Thirty-day-old seedlings raised in the field were transplanted on 12 June into the tanks at a hill spacing of 0. Proteomic studies have identified cold and heat shock proteins that may be involved in conferring tolerance to heat in N22 Jagadish et al. The duration of anthesis from the first spikelet to the last on a panicle was 7 d for both genotypes.
In addition, daily flowering time is also shown to be connected with the heat tolerance. The spikelets flowered before or after high temperature stress were all carefully removed on the afternoon of August 5 and August 6, respectively.
After pollination, it takes about 30 min for the pollen tube to reach the embryo sac Cho, Plants were moved to the shade net and raised for 3d, and then transferred back to the field. In general, the relative amount of assimilates uploaded from the pericarp after remobilization should be rather small and of minor influence on grain development.
Photographs were taken with a Nikon D70 camera Nikon Corp. Two pots six plants were used for scoring spikelet fertility both at high and control temperatures while the remaining 15 pots were used to sample spikelets for the morphological and proteomic analyses.
In general, indica rice cultivars show much better heat-tolerance than japonica cultivars. The high transcriptional activity of gibberellic acid GA metabolism genes suggests a role in establishing and maintaining differentiation of mitotically active into elongating cells.
Therefore, 2D gel electrophoresis has been used to study differential protein expression under varying conditions in different crops with diverse objectives Tsugita et al.
Genotypic differences in pollen number and germinating pollen on the stigma Matsui et al. The observation was repeated in two days, August 6 and August 7. Along with them, the hexose transporter HvSTP2 was found to be preferentially expressed throughout the pericarp, whereas HvSTP1 transcripts were distinctly localized in the syncytium and later also in the NP Weschke et al.
All spikelets were transferred immediately into fixative containing 1: However, the cause-and-effect relationship between ethylene emission from rice spikelets and the development of the spikelets has not been investigated.
Measurement methods were the same as described above. Altogether, these findings suggest that proper expression of protective chaperones in anthers is needed before anthesis to overcome stress damage and to ensure fertilization. Addressing the physiological and molecular mechanisms conferring heat tolerance during anthesis will help to develop rice germplasm capable of adapting to changing climates.
Samples for proteomic analyses were stored. In this study, three traits i.
Genes putatively controlling this process were identified and are valuable candidates to consider for molecular breeding of highly productive heat-tolerant cultivars. Temperature of the ambient air cycled from outside into the cabinets was warmed with the help of heaters.
However, extraordinary weather occurred during heading stage, the frequent rainy and low temperature made it difficult to identify the phenotype under heat stress. The effect of cold stress on young microspores was studied at the anther protein level Imin et al.
A cold and a heat shock protein were found significantly up-regulated in N22, and this may have contributed to the greater heat tolerance of N Images were captured under UV illumination.
Genotypic differences in pollen number and germinating pollen on the stigma Matsui et al. Means for each replication in three environments were calculated for each trait and used in data analysis.
Means for each replication in three environments were calculated for each trait and used in data analysis. The similar variations were also observed in Table 1Supplemental Fig.
After that, potted plants were transferred to the cement roof of the laboratory on the third floor. It consists of several layers of parenchymatic cells including the inner chlorenchyma and the vascular tissues Gubatz et al. Longer stigmas may also be important for the same reason.
The morphology of the reproductive organs and pollen number, and changes in anther protein expression, were studied in response to high temperature at anthesis in three rice Oryza sativa L. Therefore, improving rice germplasm in order to guarantee rice production under harsh environmental conditions is of top priority.
All the photographs were taken at 1. We planted the materials in late seasons to avoid heat stress in August.
Morphologically, large anthers Hashimoto, ; Suzuki, and longer stigmas Suzuki, contribute to increased tolerance to cold stress during the booting stage, and the same may be true for high temperature tolerance at flowering Matsui and Omasa, A high ethylene evolution rate has frequently been related to abortion in maize Zea mays Chen and Lur, and reduction in grain weight in wheat Triticum aestivum Xu et al.
Genotypic variation in the time of day of anthesis is considered an escape mechanism from thermal stress, but little is known on its dependency on environmental conditions. In general, indica rice cultivars show much better heat-tolerance than japonica cultivars. Anthesis – the series of events between the opening and closing of the rice flower (spikelet).
Also referred to as flowering. Aromatic (scented) Rice Arkansas Rice Production Handbook - MP - Chapter 19 Keywords: arkansas,division,agriculture,rice,production,handbook,mp was to evaluate the effect of pre-anthesis water stress on pollen quality of cultivated varieties and weedy rice strains.
Two widely cultivated Malaysian varieties of MR and MR (Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica), and two weedy rice strains of Bertam and Ketara. Anthesis.
Anthesis is the most sensitive stage of rice to high temperatures (Yoshida et al., ) and the heat-sensitive processes of anthesis are anther dehiscence, pollination, pollen germination, and to a lesser extent pollen tube growth, which is completed within 45min of the opening of a rice spikelet (Ekanayake et al., ).
Episodes of high temperature at anthesis, which in rice is the most sensitive stage to temperature, are expected to occur more frequently in future climates. The morphology of the reproductive organs and pollen number, and changes in anther protein expression, were studied in response to high temperature at anthesis in three rice (Oryza sativa L.) genotypes.
