Linkage relationships between regulatory and structural gene loci involved in zein synthesis in maize


The synthesis of at least 15 zein polypeptides is under the control of regulatory gene loci. One of these, Opaque-2 (chromosome 7, position 16) strongly reduces the zein accumulation without modifying the zein molecular components. The linkage relationship between the regulatory gene 02 and the 5 structural loci (Zp1, Zp2, Zp3, Zp6, Zp12) segregating with… (More)
