What makes it split?... Insights into anther dehiscence


Fertilization is the key for seed production and therefore factors contributing to successful fertilization are very important. Male sterility is caused not only because of lack of viable pollen but also due to failure of anther opening (anther dehiscence) and releasing otherwise functional pollen on the stigma. Anther dehiscence is a multistep process requiring localized cell differentiation and degeneration and it is under control of various factors, which will be discussed in this talk.
