Phenotypes of sporophytes and gametophytes bombarded with various plasmids. (A) Chloroplasts of non-bombarded gametophyte. (B) Chloroplastsof gametophyte ~3 weeks after bombardment with the 35S:irintCrFtsZ plasmid. (C) Hermaphrodite prothallus ~3 weeks after bombardment with 35S:irintCrFtsZ. (D), (E) Gametophyte 7d after bombardment with 35S:irtantiCrUrod before (D) and after (E) staining for GUS activity. The lesion associated with the inactivation of the CrUrod gene is indicated by an arrow.
