Genetic and molecular analysis of a three-component transposable-element system in maize

Abstract

Two different factors control the mutability of an unstable allele (c2-m8810581) of the C2 gene of maize. Both an autonomous En/Spm element and an unrelated independent factor, named Mediator, are coordinately required for the excision of the insert in c2-m881058Y. According to genetic analysis, Mediator does not have the suppressor (S) function or mutator… (More)
