    SBC: Dna Plant Technologi            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO USE TRANSPOSON-TAGGING TO ISOLATE NUCLEAR MALESTERILE GENES FROM CORN. WE HAVE GENERATED 21 MALE STERILE MUTANTS IN LINES CARRYING THE TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS AC OR SPM. SOME OF THESE MUTANTS WERE MOST LIKELY GENERATED BY THE INSERTION OF AN AC OR SPM ELEMENT. GENETIC EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT IN AT LEAST ONE CASE AC HAS TAGGED A MALE STERILE GENE. WE HAVE USED AC AS A PROBE TO CLONE THIS ...
