Dear Arabidopsis netters:
We have found an abnormal floral form in F4 progeny
from a cross between two ecotypes. We have found one plant
with 7 sepals, 8 petals, 7 stamens, and normal stigma/style.
All flowers on the plant look like this. Its f4 siblings will
come into flower shortly, so we can see if it is heritable.
I did not find comparable mutants listed in aatdb.
Has anyone observed mutants or deformities like this in the past?
Thanks for your help.
