Sequence , Regulation , and Evolution of the Maize 22-kD Zein Gene Family


We have isolated and sequenced all 23 members of the 22-kD zein (z1C) gene family of maize. This is one of the largest plant gene families that has been sequenced from a single genetic background and includes the largest contiguous genomic DNA from maize with 346,292 bp to date. Twenty-two of the z1C members are found in a roughly tandem array on chromosome… (More)
