The maize P gene conditions red phlobaphene pigmentation to the pericarp

and cob. Starting from two unstable P alleles which carry insertions of the
transposable element Ac, we have derived 51 P null alleles; 47 of the 51 null
alleles have a 17-kb deletion which removes the 4.5-kb Ac element and 12.5
kb of P sequences flanking both sides of Ac. (1) The maize P gene is a
transcriptional regulator of genes encoding enzymes for flavonoid
biosynthesis in the pathway leading to the production of a red phlobaphene
pigment. (2) The Zea mays P gene has been postulated to regulate the
biosynthetic pathway of a flavonoid-derived pigment in certain floral tissues
[Styles, E. D. & Ceska, O. (1977) Can. J. Genet. Cytol. 19, 289-302]. We have
characterized two P transcripts that are alternatively spliced at their 3' ends.
(3) Legislation in some parts of the world now requires municipal solid waste
(MSW) to be processed prior to landfilling to reduce its biodegradability and
hence its polluting potential through leachate and fugitive emission of
greenhouse gases. (4) Recent gene expression QTL (eQTL) mapping studies
have provided considerable insight into the genetic basis for inter-individual
regulatory variation. (5) Physicians now recognize the importance and
usefulness of incorporating an assessment of health-related quality of life
(HRQL) in their clinical practice and clinical studies. (6) The maize P gene
encodes a Myb-homologous transcriptional regulator of flavonoid
pigmentation in floral organs, and different P gene alleles condition precise
tissue- and organ-specific pigmentation patterns. (7) The distributions of
residue hydrophobicity for individual domains as well as for the aggregates of
domains on a single chain have been found to exhibit well-defined second-
order hydrophobic moment profiles. (8) Exposure of plants to different biotic
and abiotic stress condition instigates significant change in the cellular redox
status; resulting in the elevation of reactive nitrogen species that play
signaling role in mediating defense responses. (9) We experienced severe
asthmatic crisis during general anesthesia in a 45-year-old man with IgG4-
related disease, COPD and athma undergoing removal of submandibular
gland. (10)
