Figure 2.

The approximate chromosomal locations of the endo-(1,4)-β-glucanase genes in maize. Similarly coloured regions indicate areas of homoeology, as determined by linkage mapping, between the two ancient genomes for areas of the maize genome that contain endo-(1,4)-β-glucanase genes [26]. Sections of the chromosomes without endo-(1,4)-β-glucanase genes are coloured black. Hatching indicates areas of possible genome reversal [27]. Coloured lines link homoeologues or duplicate endo-(1,4)-β-glucanase genes.
