Genetic and molecular genetic analysis of a lethal root mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana was carried out. The mutant was obtained from a collection created earlier by means of insertion mutagenesis. The mutation was found to be recessive. It was caused by an insertion of the T region of vector pLD3 used for transformation of germinating seeds when creating the collection of insertion mutants. A 118-bp DNA fragment flanking the left border of the insertion was isolated using the TAIL PCR technique, and its nucleotide sequence was determined. Computer analysis of this DNA region demonstrated that it was located in exon 32 of the YUP8H12R.44 gene in chromosome 1.
