Associated Polymorphisms

When available, select a locus to display it at the AIP or view the EMBL record at the EBI.

Allele: Locus: AGI code:
  • ap1-1
  • lfy-6
EMBL accession:




double mutant, both alleles are strong, sterile, enhancement of lfy mutant phenotype; flowers transformed into inflorescences; effect stronger on early-arising flowers; no clear transition between secondary inflorescences and flower-like structures; the first two organs of the later-arising, transformed flowers arise laterally, similar to wild type; most organs are very leaf-like, similar to the first-whorl organs of ap1-1 single mutant; in the axils of the leaf-like organs, secondary buds arise; more severe phenotype under short days and lower temperature; maintained as heterozygote (homozygous for ap1-1, heterozygous for lfy-6).
