Fellow Arabidopsans,

In collaboration with Steve Jacobsen in Elliot Meyerowitz's lab we would like
to test whether a mutation in a putative dsRNase gene affects antisense (or
cosuppression) mechanisms in Arabidopsis.  To address this question, we are
in search of plants containing antisensed (or cosuppressed) genes with as
many of the following characteristics as possible:

1) decreased target mRNA levels in antisensed (or cosuppressed) plants
2) transcript found in leaves
3) transgene at a single genetic locus
4) Wassilewskija (WS) background preferable, not required

Any offer of transgenic seed that might be helpful will be greatly
appreciated.  Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
