Genetic placement and mapping of Mutator-induced defective kernel mutants

--M. J. Scanlon, M. James, P. S. Stinard and D. S. Robertson

For use in transposon tagging experiments of seed developmental loci we have generated a large number of defective kernel mutants (dek's) of these putative Mu-induced deks. Towards this end we have utilized B-A translocations, the waxy series of reciprocal translocations, linkage analyses and tests of allelism to previously described mutants to map or place a number of these deks. In the accompanying columns are listed those deks which have been placed to chromosome arm. Those deks which have tested positive for allelism to a known endosperm mutant are listed according to our original designations, followed by the name of the previously described mutant in parentheses. More detailed map locations are indicated in the footnotes.
