MuDR controls transposition of the Mu transposable element family in Zea maysL. It produces two major transcripts: mudrA and mudrB. mudrA encodes the MURA transposase, but no specific function has been ascribed to mudrB, which lacks strong homology to known genes. Using transient expression assays in onion epidermal cells, we defined three monopartite nuclear localization signals (NLSs) of MURA; each was functionally sufficient for nuclear targeting of MURA:GUS fusion proteins.
