The shrunken gene of wheat encodes a large enzyme that converts glucose to starch in its grains.
How would insertion of a 1 kb transposon into codon 23 of this gene affect the protein produced from
this allele?
A. The protein would be longer and still functional.
B. The protein would be much shorter and nonfunctional.
C. The shrunken protein would function as a transposase.
D. The gene would not be transcribed or translated.
E. More protein would be made.
