Deletions of Tp2
--Mark Dudley, Deverie Bongard-Pierce and Scott Poethig

Tp2-x2 and Tp2-x16 are X-ray-induced revertants of Tp2 which are not transmissible through pollen and are transmitted through the egg at a reduced frequency. Both of these revertants are missing the php20719 band present in the parental Tp2 g stock, indicating that they are deletions. The Tp2-proximal npi264 and umc155 loci are not deleted in Tp2-x16. We have yet to analyze these markers in Tp2-x2.
