The involvement of nuclear genes in mitochondrial gene expression was investigated by identifying alterations in mitochondrial gene expression that occur when teosinte cytoplasms are introduced into certain maize inbred nuclear backgrounds. The cytoplasms from the teosintes Zea perennis, Zea diploperennis, and Zea luxurians were introduced into the maize A619 or W23 lines by recurrent backcrossing. Northern analysis revealed that the Z. perennis and Z. diploperennis mitochondrial cox2… CONTINUE READING
