Bronze-2 Gene Expression and Intron Splicing Patterns in Cells and Tissues of Zea mays L.

Abstract

A large fraction of the transcripts of the Bronze-2 (Bz2) gene of maize (Zea mays L.) are unspliced in purple husk tissues. The accumulation of unspliced messages could have destructive potential if the intron-bearing mRNAs are translated into aberrant proteins. Our initial studies suggested that both genetic and physiological factors may influence the… (More)
