Expression of the zein genes of maize



Expression of the zein genes of maize



Kulturpflanze 32: S67-S68



Using lambda vectors, 140 zein-specific genomic clones from maize DNA have been isolated; of these, 10 have been analysed and shown to be unique. Zein mRNAs, present in maize endosperms principally as large precursor mRNAs, contain no intervening sequences. The origin of the smallest of these precursor RNAs (twice the size of the final 900 base zein mRNA) has been studied in detail using a genomic clone containing a 21 000 dalton zein gene.
