The defective chloroplast and leaf-mutable (dcl-m) mutation of tomato blocks chloroplast differentiation in leaf mesophyll cells and a signaling system that appears to be required for morphogenesis of palisade cells during leaf growth. To dissect the function of DCL, mutants with stable dcl alleles (dcl-s) were generated and examined for their phenotype. DCL/dcl-s plant produce dcl-s/dcl-s seeds with embryos arrested at the globular stage of development. The levels of several chloroplast- and… CONTINUE READING
