Phenotypes of T-DNA insertion alleles. In 9-d-old siliques, wild-type Arabidopsis ovules were green (A), but in siliques from sco1-2 (B) and sco1-3 (C) heterozygotes, white ovules were found intermixed with normal green ovules, indicating that chloroplast development is disrupted during embryogenesis in these alleles. White ovules accounted for approximately 25% of the total observed (sco1-2, 88 white ovules out of 360; sco1-3, 36 white ovules in 166). The upstream T-DNA insertion in 5-d-old sco1-4 seedlings (D, right) resulted in significantly stunted growth and pale cotyledons when compared to wild-type seedlings of similar age (D, left).
