Abstract

Reversions of the mutable allele o2-hfleading to formation of the phenotypically normal kernels or whole endosperm revertants (WER) are studied in the plant ontogeny. The pattern of WER kernel distribution on the ear maps and analysis of their progeny showed that the reversion of the mutable allele o2-hf occurs at the late premeiotic stages of the ear development. Most of whole endosperm revertants on the ears homozygous for both the mutable allele o2-hfand regulatory element Bg-hf are grouped into clusters. The WER kernels are mostly formed during the period from the gamete fusion to the first division of the primary endosperm nucleus and are not embryo revertants. This clustering of revertant kernels seems to be caused by the joint effect of two factors on the early stages of endosperm development. These factors are (1) diffusion of an additional amount of transposase into the nearby Kernels from the developing endosperm, where the level of this enzyme is sufficient to induce excision of the receptor element and (2) the high proportion of the developing kernels with supra- and subthreshold levels of the Bg-hf-encoded transposase.
