  • Crosses between emb mutants that complemented each other are indicated by the symbol C, and crosses between mutants that did not complement each other are indicated by the symbol A because these mutants appear to be in the same gene and are therefore allelic. The number of symbols in each “box” of the table indicates the number of replicas of that cross. The numbers in parentheses next to each symbol correspond to the corresponding cross with its detailed results shown in Table S1. The entries in bold are based on the result observed with the reciprocal cross. For example, when UND-4 was crossed onto UND-9 (crosses 29 and 30), allelism was inferred and this is indicated in the box in the table for the cross of UND-4 as the pollen parent onto UND-9 as the ear parent, and is also shown in bold in the box in the table for UND-9 as the pollen parent and UND-4 as the ear parent, although this latter cross was not performed. Some entries enclosed in parenthesis reflect the allelism observed for UND-1 and UND-10 as well as UND-4 and UND-9. NA, not applicable.
