The Texas (T) male sterile cytoplasm of maize is distinguished by a mitochondrially synthesized 13-kd polypeptide and a high susceptibility to the toxin produced by the fungal pathogen Helminthosporium maydis. Fertile, toxin-resistant revertants show an altered restriction profile for mitochondrial DNA and do not produce the 13-kd polypeptide. Characterization of cosmid clones from CMS T maize and a revertant shows that a heavily transcribed open reading frame named T-URF13, potentially coding… CONTINUE READING
