  • a All seedlings were homozygous for rad51A2-98E7d4 and segregated for rad51A1-54F11d.

  • b Kernels obtained via self-pollinations of plants heterozygous for rad51A1-54F11d1 and homozygous for rad51A2-98E7d4 were irradiated, germinated, and genotyped. The five kernels that failed to germinate are not included.

  • c Two seedlings were less than half normal height and had aberrantly shaped leaves.
