RESYNTHESIS OF THE R-NAVAJO PHENOTYPE IN MAIZE (ZEA MAYS L.)

Published on

R-iQ phenotype was restored when the two R-iQ components, Sc and Nj, were brought together in
the same individual in trans conrJlUration. This complementation has demonstrated that these
two
compo~nts, Sc and Nj, are closely linked independent genes with different functions. ne Sc
gene is responsible for anthocyanin pigment production in the aleurone tissue, while Nj gene is
regulatory
in nature controlling the onset, termination or period of Sc gene action.  

Keywords: R-nj, resynthesis, complementation, maize.
