Verification of genotype/phenotype relationship in the Cm-PDS gene. Chromatograms of wild type (WT), homozygous mutants (M) and heterozygous are shown for the C 560 T transition altering codon 227 S (serine) to F (phenylalanine) and predicted to affect the protein function. Segregation of the mutation was confirmed in M3 seeds from a heterozygous M2 plant. The albino was the only plant homozygous for the mutant allele; the remaining M3 plants were wild type or heterozygous.
