Genetic analyses of endoreduplication in Zea mays endosperm: evidence of sporophytic and zygotic maternal control.

Abstract

Flow cytometry was used to assess the variability of endoreduplication in endosperms of maize inbred lines. Little variation was found between midwestern dent types, and high levels of endoreduplication were observed in popcorns. Endoreduplication is different between inbred lines by 13-18 days after pollination, and flow cytometric analysis of ploidy level… (More)
