Mutation in the particle thicknesses and weight 2 (GW2) locus generated by recombinant enhances the aleurone layer or grains nutritional quality in rice.
Crop productivity and nutritive value are the most essential components of a crop improvement strategy for meeting future food demand and increasing human health. Crop yield and nutritive values are largely determined by grain development and embryo growth. A thick aleurone layer with high grain protein June be seen with the endosperm of GW2-KO mutation seed. Moreover, while OsGW2 is disabled, the embryos of grain accumulate more critical dietary metals (Fe,Zn,K,P, & Ca). The mutations also had a phenotypic of initial growth vigor, and also better shoot and root architecture. Our results suggest that GW2 could be an important modulator of plant traits and a significant regulator of improved grains architectural and nutritive values. The investigation proposes an approach for the production of enhanced rice varieties having enhanced nutritional quality, but also its potential application to other cereals.Author(s): Grayson Lucas
