Analyzing the Expression Levels of Glossy2 and Glossy2 like in Silks and Leaves in Maize

The maize cuticle protects against biological stressors and is composed of fatty acids and their derivatives. Glossy2 is a gene that is necessary for elongating fatty acids that make up the cuticle. Quantitative PCR was used to measure the expression of Glossy2 in silks and leaves.
