This paper reports that the opaque-6 (o6) mutation of maize, which causes seedling lethality and interferes in the endosperm with the synthesis of zeins and b-32 protein, is a proline requiring mutant functionally allelic to proline-1 (pro-1). Furthermore, immunological studies on the b-32 content of ten independently originated o6 and pro-1 alleles… CONTINUE READING
