The liguleless-1 (lg1) gene affects maize leaf development. In a normal maize leaf, a ligule and auricles separate the blade and sheath. The recessive lg1 mutation prevents formation of ligules and auricles during leaf development. To determine the timing and site of lg1 gene action, we compared development of wild-type and lg1 mutant leaves, and analyzed genetic mosaics composed of wild-type and lg1 mutant cells. In wild-type leaves the first sign of differentiation of the ligular region is a… CONTINUE READING
