Pulsed-field gel mapping of maize mitochondrial chromosomes

  title={Pulsed-field gel mapping of maize mitochondrial chromosomes},
  author={Charles P. Andr{\'e} and Virginia Walbot},
  journal={Molecular and General Genetics MGG},
Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) in combination with infrequently cutting restriction enzymes was used to investigate the structure of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of the maize variety Black Mexican Sweet (BMS). The mt genome of this variety was found to resemble that of the closely related B37N variety, with one recombination and five insertion/deletion events being sufficient to account for the differences observed between the two genomes. The majority of the BMS genome is organized… CONTINUE READING
