Title: Sequence regulating the anther-specific expression of a gene and its use in the production of androsterile plants and hybrid seeds

Abstract: The regulatory sequence is useful for the specific expression in anther of a nucleotide sequence of interest, for example, a sequence whose controlled expression under the regulatory sequence causes complete ablation of the anther in the early development stages and allows a user to obtain androsterile plants that are useful for producing hybrid seeds.
