Donation Date: 2008-05-08

Donated by:  University of London Enrique LopezJuez

Part of : Homozygous lines

Stock type: individual line

Material type: seed

Comment: Because the deficiency in phytochrome chromophore in hy1 recovers with age to some extent, the plants eventually grow to a considerable size and set seed without problem.

Status Price (£)
Available £7.50

Germplasm Info

Seed type: Mutant

Mutagen: ethylmethane sulfonate

Background: Ler

Segregation status: homozygous

Growth requirement: Extremely spindly and weak seedling, almost etiolated in full light. Grow early on with high moisture/under a lid cover.

Associated Polymorphisms

When available, select a locus to display it at the AIP or view the EMBL record at the EBI.

Allele: Locus: AGI code:
  • cry1
  • cry2
  • hy1
