抄録

The <i>speckled</i> mutant of the Japanese morning glory blooms pale yellow flowers with fine and round colored spots, or speckles, distributed over the corolla. Since it also occasionally produces flowers with colored sectors apparently due to somatic mutations, the mutable <i>speckled</i> allele is thought to carry a transposable element. In this paper, we show that the appearance of the variegation phenotypes in the <i>speckled</i> mutant was controlled not only by the recessive <i>speckled</i> allele but also by a dominant genetic element, termed <i>speckled-activator</i>. Our results also indicated that the recessive <i>c-1</i> mutation affecting pigmentation of flowers and mapped near the <i>speckled</i> locus causes a defect in a regulatory gene controlling the expression of structural genes for anthocyanin biosynthesis.<br>
