About the Edition

Molecular screens in Arabidopsis thaliana have typically relied on the limits of genetic variation found within this species. Here I report a novel trans-generic screen designed to identify loci that cause obvious morphological effects when transferred into A. thaliana. A genomic library was created from Sisymbrium officinale and a shotgun transformation approach was used to move these fragments into A. thaliana. Six mutants were isolated from this screen. Phenotypes include upcurled leaves, a thick stem, or early flowering. Of the six lines identified, one, exhibiting a short internode phenotype, was characterized further. Confocal imaging shows that reduced cell expansion in the internodes accounts for most of the phenotype. The transferred genomic fragment contains a NAC transcription factor homologous to ANAC003, ANAC004, and ANAC005 from A. thaliana. Future work on this line will give insight into the molecular biology of cell expansion and the evolution of NAC transcription factors.
