Gene expression play significant role in lignin synthesis pathway in sorghum. Expression level of brown-midrib sorghum was studied in brown midrib sorghum bmr 6 and bmr 12 mutant of Atlas, Kansas collier, Early hagari Sart, Rox Orange. Gene expression levels for bmr 6, CAD 4, SBCAD2, bmr 12, COMT3 COMT were compared for wild sorghum genotypes with their bmr 6 and bmr 12 counterparts. bmr 6 has negative non-significant correlation with lignin content (-0.075).
