BGN  45:117
Stock number: BGS 230
Locus name: Globosum-e
Locus symbol: glo-e

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:



Monofactorial recessive (1).
Located in chromosome 3HL or 1HS (1); glo-e.15 is associated with SNP markers 1_0646 to 1_0694 (positions 239.73 to 248.51 cM) in 3H bin 15 and with SNP markers 2_0373 to 2_1067 (positions 0.10 to 3.18 cM) in 1H bin 01 in Bowman backcross-derived line BW396 (1).


Plants appear normal, but kernels are larger and more rounded than those of normal sibs (3). No morphological differences were noted between Bowman and the Bowman backcross-derived line for glo-e.15, BW396, except kernels seemed a little wider (2).

Origin of mutant:

A neutron induced mutant in Foma (NGB 14659, CIho 11333) (4).

Mutational events:

glo-e.15 (glo-e.1010, NGB 115633, GSHO 1755) in Foma (NGB 14659, CIho 11333) (3, 4).

Mutant used for description and seed stocks:

glo-e.15 (NGB 115633, GSHO 1755) in Foma; glo-e.15 in Bowman (PI 483237)*7 (GSHO 2050, BW396, NGB 20634).
