The effect of varying gene dosage on aleurone colour in maize
1. A new dominant geneDt interacts with recessivea1 in the presence of the dominant allels of the other factors concerned with aleurone colour to give coloured dots scattered over the aleurone layer.Dt is specific in its interaction with recessivea1.
2. The effect on the dotted character of varying the dosage of recessivea1 was additive. Data on three dosages ofa1 were obtained.
3. The effect on the number of dots of varying the dosage of theDt gene was non-additive.
