Variation in upstream open reading frames contributes to allelic diversity in maize protein abundance

Joseph Gage, Merritt Khaipho-Burch, and Brandon Monier explore the variations in short open reading frames (uORFs) that lie upstream of the main coding sequence, and how that relates to differences in protein abundance.
