A Maize Homolog of Mammalian CENPC Is a Constitutive Component of the Inner Kinetochore
Genes for three maize homologs (CenpcA, CenpcB, and CenpcC) of the conserved kinetochore assembly protein known as centromere protein C (CENPC) have been identified. The C-terminal portion of maize… Expand

Neocentromere activity is a classic example of nonkinetochore chromosome movement. In maize, neocentromeres are induced by a gene or genes on Abnormal chromosome 10 (Ab10) which causes… Expand
Independently Regulated Neocentromere Activity of Two Classes of Tandem Repeat Arrays Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at www.plantcell.org/cgi/doi/10.1105/tpc.010373.
Tandem repeat arrays often are found in interstitial (i.e., normally gene-rich) regions on chromosomes. In maize, genes on abnormal chromosome 10 induce the tandem repeats that make up knobs to move… Expand
The plant kinetochore.
Kinetochores are large protein complexes that bind to centromeres. By interacting with microtubules and their associated motor proteins, kinetochores both generate and regulate chromosome movement.… Expand
Plant neocentromeres: fast, focused, and driven
Plant neocentromeres are large heterochromatic domains that associate with microtubules and move rapidly poleward during meiotic cell division. In maize, neocentromeres are part of a process that… Expand
The Meiotic Drive System on Maize Abnormal Chromosome 10 Contains Few Essential Genes
In maize, a distal portion of abnormal chromosome 10 (Ab10) causes the meiotic drive of itself as well as many unlinked heterochromatic regions known as knobs. The Ab10 drive system, which encodes… Expand

The meiotic drive system on maize abnormal chromosome 10 (Ab10) is contained within a terminal domain of chromatin that extends the long arm of Ab10 to ∼1.3 times the size of normal chromosome 10L.… Expand
Four loci on abnormal chromosome 10 contribute to meiotic drive in maize.
We provide a genetic analysis of the meiotic drive system on maize abnormal chromosome 10 (Ab10) that causes preferential segregation of specific chromosomal regions to the reproductive megaspore.… Expand
Monoclonal antibodies incorporated into Neotyphodium coenophialum fungal cultures: inhibition of fungal growth and stability of antibodies.
Three monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) produced against proteins from the tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) fungal endophyte Neotyphodium coenophialum hybridize exclusively to a fungal protein… Expand
Tissue Culture of Secondary Xylem Parenchyma of Four Species of Southern Pines
Callus was grown from increment core explants of longleaf pine ( Pinus palustris Mill.), slash pine ( P. elliottii Engelm.), loblolly pine ( P. taeda L.), and shortleaf pine ( P. echinata Mill.)… Expand
