Title: PHOTOSENSITIVITY GENE Hd1 OF PLANT AND UTILIZATION THEREOF
Abstract:
A rice photosensitivity gene Hd1 is successfully isolated by linkage analysis. It is found out that the photosensitivity of a plant can be modified by transferring this gene or controlling the expression thereof. It is further found out that the photosensitivity of a plant can be evaluated by examining the presence/absence of this functional gene.
