Greaves, Ian K.; Gonzalez-Bayon, Rebeca; Wang, Li; Zhu, Anyu; Liu, Pei-Chuan; Peacock, W. James; Dennis, Elizabeth S.; Groszmann, Michael


Genome-wide approaches to the study of hybrid vigor have identified epigenetic changes in the hybrid nucleus in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), maize (Zea mays), and rice (Oryza sativa). DNA methylation associated with 24-nucleotide small interfering RNAs exhibits transallelic effects in hybrids of Arabidopsis and other species. Some of the transmethylation changes are inherited and some affect gene expression. Hybrids have larger leaves than those of the parents and have increases in cell...[Show more]
