Dear Arabidopsis Networkers,

LEHLE SEEDS sells two Columbia wild type backgrounds, one 
which is glabrous (cat. no. WT-1A) and one which carries
no markers (cat. no. WT-2).  The glabrous trait of WT-1A has 
always been attributed to the gl1 mutation.  Several of 
our customers asked for confirmation of this so we crossed 
our WT-1A background to another strain known to contain gl1.  
Results indicated that all F1 plants (11 were examined) 
were glabrous.  All 84 F2 progeny randomly selected from 
the 11 F1 families were also glabrous.  We conclude 
that the glabrous marker in our cat. no. WT-1A is gl1.
We use cat. no. WT-1A as the background for the following 
mutated seed products:

Cat. no.        Description              Batch #   Comment

M2E-1A          EMS M2 Columbia            89C     Retired
M2E-1A-1        EMS M2 Columbia            89D     Retired
M2E-1A-2        EMS M2 Columbia            92G     Available
M2E-1A-3        EMS M2 Columbia            92K     Available
M2F-1A-1        Fast Neutron M2 Columbia   92D     Available

Note: Cat. no. M2F-1A-1 was formally identified as simply M2F-1. 

Sincerely,      Fred Lehle
