Intron-independent genes

I am looking for Arabidopsis genes whose expression is not influenced by
the presence or absence of introns. For instance, GUS fusions to either the
TCH3 or Cor15a promoters give similar GUS expression if GUS is fused
upstream or downstream of endogenous introns. Are you aware of any other
examples, published or unpublished, of intron-independent Arabidopsis
genes? Thanks in advance.
