To provide an insight into the molecular basis of heterosis, we investigated gene expression in primary root tips of a heterotic maize hybrid (B73 .times. Mo17) and its parental lines (B73 and Mo17). This analysis was carried out (i) by differenti...

Lindstrom, E.W., 1935: Genetic experiments on hybrid vigor in maize. The distribution of ear weight was studied in the F1 and F2 populations from two crosses between inbred lines of maize, shewing pronounced heterosis in the F1. If heterosis is to be explained in terms of dominance of size genes, a pronounced skew...
