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!
