A chlorophyll-deficient mutant line of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), named tl, displays spontaneously on leaves green, white, and twinned green/white somatic variations at high frequencies (10−3 to 10−2). The frequency of cell events leading to the somatic variations has been shown to be closely dependent on the stage of differentiation of cells during plant development. The activity of transposable elements is suspected in the tl genotype, and a study of its mutagenic ability was performed by… CONTINUE READING
