A transposon insertion in the Arabidopsis SSR16 gene causes an embryo-defective lethal mutation.


The SSR16 gene of Arabidopsis has been identified as a gene encoding a ribosomal protein S16 homolog through analysis of a transposon insertion mutation. The insertion mutation is lethal, arresting embryonic development at approximately the transition from the globular to the heart stage of embryonic development. Co-segregation of the mutant phenotype with… (More)
