Molecular and genetic characterization of Mu transposable elements in Zea mays: behavior in callus culture and regenerated plants.


Active Mutator lines of maize (Zea mays L.) have a high mutation rate and contain multiple hypomethylated 1.4-kb and 1.7-kb Mu transposable elements. Correlated with the inactivation of the Mutator system, these Mu elements cease to transpose and become more methylated. To determine whether the shock of tissue culture can affect Mutator activities, F1… (More)
