A Genetic Screen for Pre-mRNA Splicing Mutants of Arabidopsis
roles in pre-mRNA splicing in plants. To gain more information about plant splicing factors, we are conducting a forward genetic screen to identify mutants showing modiﬁed splicing of an alternatively spliced GFP re-porter gene in Arabidopsis. So far this screen has yielded mutations in putative U5 snRNP protein PRP8, a large, con-

Products from the primary PCR were used as templates for the secondary PCR using ETC2-T/ETC2-R as primers (Tm = 65 °C, 23 cycles) (Fig. 6 , lower panel).
Mutagenesis as a Tool in Plant Genetics, Functional Genomics
Plant mutagenesis is rapidly coming of age in the aftermath of recent developments in high-resolution molecular and biochemical techniques. By combining the high variation of mutagenised populations with novel screening methods, traits that are almost impossible to identify by conventional breeding are now being developed and characterised at the molecular level.
Increased telomere length and hypersensitivity to DNA damaging
Plants homozygous for the T‐DNA insertion in AtKU70 are phenotypically normal but hypersensitive to DNA damaging agents. Furthermore, when we investigated the length of the telomeres in such plants we found that rather than being shortened they were much longer than found in wild‐type Arabidopsis plants.
Stimulation of homologous recombination in plants expressing
Jul 16, 2020 · Current excitement about the opportunities for gene editing in plants have been prompted by advances in CRISPR/Cas and TALEN technologies. CRISPR/Cas is widely used to knock-out or modify genes by inducing targeted double-strand breaks (DSBs) which are repaired predominantly by error-prone non-homologous end-joining or microhomology-mediated end joining resulting in mutations that may alter or ...

Self-compatibility in plants homozygous for the S f2 haplotype has been ascribed to the fact that these plants do not produce SRK transcripts (Nasrallah et al., 1994b). It is thought that this nonfunctional S f2 haplotype was selected along with self-compatibility in the course of cultivation ( Hinata and Prakash, 1984 ).
Mutagenomics: A Rapid, High-Throughput Method to Identify
The screen selects M2 lines homozygous for the mutation of interest if recessive. Alternatively, homozygotes can be selected from M3 rescreens for dominant mutations. Thus, as one sequences additional sibling lines, they will all be homozygous for the mutation of interest (as the phenotype selected for this), with other random mutations segregating.

The idea behind the sibling analysis is that in the mutagenesis process, the M1 plant acquires randomly allocated heterozygous mutations. Upon selfing, this will produce M2 offspring segregating for all mutations, including the mutation of interest. The screen selects M2 lines homozygous for the mutation of interest if recessive.
