The maize mutable allele bz-m2 (Ac), which arose from insertion of the 4.6 kb Ac element in the bz (bronze) locus, gives rise to stable bz (bz-s) derivatives that retain an active Ac element closely linked to bz. In the derivative bz-s:2114 (Ac), the Ac element is recombinationally inseparable from bz and transposes to unlinked sites at a frequency similar to that in the progenitor allele bzm2 (Ac). Both alleles have been cloned and sequenced. The bz-s:2114 (Ac) mutation retains Ac at the… CONTINUE READING
