Identification of a genetic element that controls the organ-specific expression of adh1 in maize



Identification of a genetic element that controls the organ-specific expression of adh1 in maize



Genetics 98(2): 357-378



Allozyme balances serve as markers of quantitative behavior of electrophoretically distinguishable alleles. By the use of ADH Set I allozyme balances, it is demonstrated that all Adh1-S/Adh1-F individuals from more than 20 diverse S/F families exhibit a reciprocal correlation between Adh1 quantitative behavior in two maize organs: the scutellum and primary root. Within an electrophoretic mobility class, the Adh1 allele that is relatively underexpressed in the scutellum is relatively overexpressed in the primary root, and vice versa. Segregation tests prove that this "reciprocal effect" is the property of a cis-acting site that is closely linked to or within the Adh1 structural gene, and it is not affected by diverse genetic backgrounds. Immunological and [(3)H]-leucine incorporation experiments establish that Adh1 quantitative variants differ in ADH1.ADH1 synthetic rates in the anaerobic primary root. The reciprocal-effect phenomenon suggests that the cis-acting loci controlling Adh1 quantitative expression in each respective organ are at least in close proximity, or may share common DNA sequences. We discuss the possibility that the reciprocal-effect locus is a regulatory component of the Adh1 cistron.
