Basis for the diversity of states of controlling elements in maize


In maize the insertion of a controlling element such as the regulatory element, En, (Enhancer) at a locus generates diverse derivatives. These derivatives include stable phenotypes that range from colorless to full color. Distinguishable patterns are determined by timing and frequency of mutation events. It has been hypothesized that diverse expressions are… (More)
