The maize P gene, which specifies red pigmentation of the kernel pericarp, cob, and other floral organs, has been an important model since the early days of modern genetics. Here we show that P encodes a Myb homolog that recognizes the sequence CCT/AACC, in sharp contrast with the C/TAACGG bound by vertebrate Myb proteins. P binds to and activates(More)
Transcription factors containing the Myb-homologous DNA-binding domain are widely found in eukaryotes. In plants, R2R3 Myb-domain proteins are involved in the control of form and metabolism. The Arabidopsis genome harbors >100 R2R3 Myb genes, but few have been found in monocots, animals, and fungi. Using RT-PCR from different maize organs, we cloned 480(More)
The pl gene encodes a regulatory protein that controls the transcription of a number of structural genes of the anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway in maize. pl alleles have been classified phenotypically into two categories: dominant (Pl) alleles lead to intense, light-independent pigmentation in vegetative and floral organs of the plant; recessive "sun-red"(More)

A research framework, or construct, provides researchers with generally accepted guidelines to organize scholarly efforts and foster methodological rigor. Originating through applications of the scientific method, many qualitative research frameworks have become fully vetted and recognized in recent years, including action research, grounded theory, and the(More)
Published as a not-for-profit service of the Aviation Institute. The mission of the Journal of Air Transportation (JAT) is to provide the global community immediate key resource information in all areas of air transportation. The goal of the Journal is to be recognized as the preeminent scholarly journal in the aeronautical aspects of transportation. As an(More)
The increasing density and complexity of modern radio communications systems and the crowded electromagnetic environment make electromagnetic interference (EMI) a growing concern. To ensure electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in Transport Canada (TC) installations, such as airports and air traffic control centres, improved methods for systems design,(More)
A number of problems such as planning, scheduling and system maintenance have in common a dynamic set of resources and the need to optimize the use of these resources. The Dynamic Optimal Resource Utilization System (DORUS) is an architecture suitable for the construction of expert systems for these problem domains. It allows not only for dynamic data but(More)
