I've been working with Landsberg erecta wild type and the tt4 flavonoid
deficient (uv-b sensitive) mutant which was derived from it.  It appears
that in most of my studies, the wild type performs better (growth and
reproduction) than the mutant -- under all treatment scenerios.  Is this a
common phenomenon?  If so, does anybody know of any papers on the subject?
I need to try to explain this phenomenon in my dissertation (and subsequent
papers which will come out of it).

Thanks for your help!
