The b gene encodes a transcriptional regulator of the maize anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway. Certain b alleles participate in paramutation, an allele-specific interaction that heritably alters transcription. The moderately transcribed B' allele heritably reduces the transcription of the highly transcribed B-I allele in a B'/B-I heterozygote, such that the B-I allele becomes B'. To identify the cis-acting sequences required for paramutation, we used B' or B-I alleles to isolate intragenic… CONTINUE READING
