Etched2 (et2), a new etched endosperm/albino seedling mutant, is located on 2S

This maize mutant, designated et*-2352, was found segregating on the selfed ear of a Mutator outcross plant. Mutant grains gave rise to off-white albino seedlings, with occasional greening of leaf tips. Some mutant seedlings had fine, green revertant sectors typical of Mu-induced seedling mutants. Mutant seedlings died after the grain nutrient reserves had been exhausted.
