Abstract. In maize, the endosperm region next to the placento-chalaza is characterised by the presence of cells with extensive cell wall ingrowths (transfer cells). Specific genes, collectively named as BETL (for Basal Endosperm Transfer Layer) genes, are expressed in these cells in a way that coincides with the temporal development of the transfer cell layer. The BETL-1 gene encodes a polypeptide of 7 kDa, exclusively expressed in the transfer cell region and possibly involved in the… CONTINUE READING
