Genetics of dominant gibberellin-insensitive dwarfism in maize.

Abstract:

D8 and Mpl1 are two dominant dwarfing mutations of maize. Although they differ in severity of dwarfism, both D8 and Mpl1 mutants are unresponsive to gibberellin (GA). Because of their close phenotypic resemblance to the recessive GA-sensitive dwarf mutants these dominant mutations may identify a gene whose product is involved in the reception of GA. With this possibility in mind we have studied the genetic properties of D8 and Mpl1. Both mutations map close to Adh1 on chromosome 1L. By markin...
