Basic mutant information   
Mutant name nyc3
Mutant/Transgenic mutant
Ecotype rice (O. sativa L. cv Nipponbare)
Mutagenesis type EMS
(Semi-)Dominant/Recessive recessive
Description nyc3 retained a higher chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b content than the wild-type but showed a decrease in other senescence parameters during dark incubation, suggesting that it is a non-functional stay-green mutant
1: Morita R, Sato Y, Masuda Y, Nishimura M, Kusaba M
Defect in non-yellow coloring 3, an alpha/beta hydrolase-fold family protein, causes a stay-green phenotype during leaf senescence in rice.
