	I work with Nto.  I have germinated wt and transgenic Nto on basal 
M&S both with and without Km-100.  They grow fine without the Km, but with 
Km is a bit complicated.  The wt plants start to grow, and remain green, but 
stagnate at the cotyledon stage.  This is quite different from Ath which 
turn white and die. 
	I have never tried the precice experiment of transfering them after 
germination, but based on the mild response of seeds germinated on Km, I
would be cautious about it.  Good luck, and email me direct if you wish to 
discuss this further.
