Comparison of Genomic Clones Derived from the Sh Gene in Zea Mays L. and of Two Mutants of this Gene which are Caused by the Insertion of the Controlling Element Ds

Transposable DNA sequences have been studied extensively biochemically in the last 10 years, particularly in bacteria (17), and later in yeast (6), Drosophila (8), and vertebrates. However, transposable elements were first discovered and thoroughly investigated in maize, and were designated “controlling elements” by B. McClintock (10,11,12,15). The tremendous amount of genetic and physiological information accumulated by McClintock, Peterson, Brink, Rhoades, and other authors led to the understanding of the capabilities of the maize transposable elements.
