alb4 for clonal sector analysis?

Hello everyone,
I have an undergrad trying to generate clonally marked sectors, and we were
hoping to irradiate alb4 (cs215) hets since alb4/+ plants are yellow-green.
The hope was to find twin spots, ie, a green sector (+/+) adjacent to a
white one (-/-) within a yellow field of cells (+/-). In the first expt,
she saw no sectors of any sort (while another mutant line did).

One explanation is that alb4 is non-cell autonomous. Has anyone else tried
to generate sectors in alb4 hets?

Thanks,
Mike
