--Peter A. Peterson
This is a new bz-mutable (bz-m) that arose in an isolation plot of Bz/Bz x bz/bz. The only transposon known to have been introduced into this genotype was Uq-I159. Preliminary segregation studies show it to be autonomous or to have two or more Uq elements segregating.
The pattern of this mutable is relatively coarse. This would suggest, though not yet tested, that these are non-responding stable derivatives. Especially so, in view of the large bz sectors in kernels that are heavily mutable.
