Identification of the bm5 gene. a The SNP-index for the F2 progeny of bm5-504J. b Genomic location of Zm4CL1 (GRMZM2G075333) on maize chromosome 5. The base pair number was referred to the Phytozome database version 1.8. c Exon and intron structure of the Zm4CL1 gene. Black boxes indicate exons and lines between the boxes indicate introns. Insertion sequences of bm5 are indicated by inverse triangles. d S1 PCR products amplified from B73, bm5-504I, and bm5-505J genomic DNA and S2 PCR products amplified from B73 and bm5-504J genomic DNA. e S1 PCR products amplified from B73, bm5-504I, and bm5-504J cDNA. f RT-PCR analysis of Zm4CL1 expression in midribs of B73 wild-type and bm5 mutants. g qRT-PCR analysis of Zm4CL1 expression in midribs of B73 wild-type and bm5 mutants. The primer pair was designed in 3′ untranslated region. Midribs of the fourth leaves were collected from 60-day-old B73 wild-type and bm5 mutants
