An allele of sh2, sh2-N2340, had been produced by Dr. Gyula Ficsor, using EMS treatment of mature kernels of a purple kernel ACR line. It expresses as a partially collapsed kernel that resembles denting or a less extreme expression of sh1. It is dominant to the reference sh2 allele and has about the same viability. Stocks are available at the Co-op.
