Molecular identification and isolation of the Waxy locus in maize

Cell

Nov 1, 1983

M ShureN Fedoroff

PMID: 6313224

Abstract

The Waxy (Wx) locus in maize determines the amylose content of pollen and endosperm tissue. There are several mutant alleles of the locus caused by insertion of transposable controlling elements. In the present study, we have used the properties of controlling element alleles to identif...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.
