Characterization of the maize gene sugary1, a determinant of starch composition in kernels

The Plant Cell

Apr 1, 1995

Martha G JamesA M Myers

Abstract

In maize kernels, mutations in the gene sugary1 (su1) result in (1) increased sucrose concentration; (2) decreased concentration of amylopectin, the branched component of starch; and (3) accumulation of the highly branched glucopolysaccharide phytoglycogen. To investigate further the me...read more

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.
