Genetic and molecular analyses of an Arabidopsis thaliana mutant with necrotic cotyledons from the collection of insertion mutants obtained earlier were conducted. The mutation under study showed incomplete dominance and represented a single insertion of the T region of pLD3 vector used for transformation of germinating seeds to the plant genome during the creation of the collection. Using TAIL-PCR, a fragment of the mutant DNA adjacent to the left border of the T-DNA insertion was isolated and sequenced. Computer r-aided analysis showed that the insertion was located on the left arm of chromosome 1. The open reading frame containing the insertion has one exon and encodes a protein of 446 amino acids, whose function is unknown.
