BGS 723, Multiovary 5, mov5

BGN  43:218
Stock number: BGS 723
Locus name: Multiovary 5
Locus symbol: mov5

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

Multiovary o = mov.o (1).


Monofactorial recessive (1).
Location is unknown.


Spikelets of the mov5.o (FN532) mutant have three carpels with the lodicules being somewhat abnormal. The lodicules do not form clear sepal-like structures as occurs in mov1.f (multiovary 1) mutant (BGS 043). Stamens are absent. The mov5.o plants appear nearly normal although they are somewhat shorter than normal segregates (1). The mutant does not set seed and needs to be maintained as a heterozygote (1). Based on the distinct morphological features of the mov5.o spikelets, this mutant is unlikely to be allelic to previous named multiovary loci (1).
