c-836956 - a deficiency that is not male transmitted --Peter A. Peterson That a deficiency is not male transmitted is no surprise. This arose from a C-I allele where changes in C-I were isolated. The female transmission is slightly disturbed. Where a linked marker (Bz) is expected in 50% of the progeny, this deficiency appears approximately 38-45% of the time. Many embryos do not develop a seed. It is ambivalent. The deficiency has a variable penetrance.
