Although allelic sequences can vary extensively, it is generally assumed that each gene in one individual will have an allelic counterpart in another individual of the same species. We report hereExpand
Resistance to Turnip Crinkle Virus in Arabidopsis Is Regulated by Two Host Genes and Is Salicylic Acid Dependent but NPR1, Ethylene, and Jasmonate Independent
Inoculation of turnip crinkle virus (TCV) on the resistant Arabidopsis ecotype Dijon (Di-17) results in the development of a hypersensitive response (HR) on the inoculated leaves. To assess the roleExpand
Genetic and developmental control of anthocyanin biosynthesis.
Directed tagging of the Arabidopsis FATTY ACID ELONGATION1 (FAE1) gene with the maize transposon activator.
The FATTY ACID ELONGATION1 (FAE1) gene of Arabidopsis is required for the synthesis of very long chain fatty acids in the seed. The product of the FAE1 gene is presumed to be a condensing enzyme thatExpand
HelitronScanner uncovers a large overlooked cache of Helitron transposons in many plant genomes
Significance Helitrons are unusual rolling-circle eukaryotic transposons with a remarkable ability to capture gene sequences, which makes them of considerable evolutionary importance. BecauseExpand
Gene movement by Helitron transposons contributes to the haplotype variability of maize.
Different maize inbred lines are polymorphic for the presence or absence of genic sequences at various allelic chromosomal locations. In the bz genomic region, located in 9S, sequences homologous toExpand
Jittery, a Mutator Distant Relative with a Paradoxical Mobile Behavior: Excision without Reinsertion
The unstable mutation bz-m039 arose in a maize (Zea mays) stock that originated from a plant infected with barley stripe mosaic virus. The instability of the mutation is caused by a 3.9-kb mobileExpand
Recombination rates between adjacent genic and retrotransposon regions in maize vary by 2 orders of magnitude
Genetic map length and gene number in eukaryotes vary considerably less than genome size, giving rise to the hypothesis that recombination is restricted to genes. The complex genome of maize containsExpand

  • 1 August 1986
The bronze (bz) locus in maize, located in the short arm of chromosome 9 (9S), is the structural gene for the anthocyanin biosynthetic enzyme UFGT. The gene has been cloned and its physical map hasExpand
Recombination occurs uniformly within the bronze gene, a meiotic recombination hotspot in the maize genome.
The bronze (bz) gene is a recombinational hotspot in the maize genome: its level of meiotic recombination per unit of physical length is > 100-fold higher than the genome's average and is the highestExpand
