The rice genome carries at least two active GA20ox genes namely GA20ox1 and GA20ox2. It was found that GA20ox2 was located on the long arm of chromosome 1, tightly linked to the sd1 locus whereas GA20ox1 does not correspond to the sd1 locus as it is mapped on chromosome 3 of rice genome (Matsuoka et al., 2002).
