been located to chromosome 2 on the basis of linkage with wt. In
an attempt to establish linear sequence, crosses were made to v4. Unexpectedly,
the F2 of this cross segregated 15+:1gl. This suggests that what
has been designated gl14 is really a double recessive, gl14 gl14,
gl24 gl24. If this is true gl24 is commonly present in recessive form,
as in all previous crosses gl14 has behaved as a single locus recessive.
Apparently wt is not expressed in v4 seedlings as no wt v4
plants were observed in a population of over 400 seedlings.
