Gene Symbol a3f ( Allele )
Gene Name a3-flecked
Chr.No 5 Map Position 12.4 ± 1.2
Feature Allelic to a-3. Hypocotyl and stem sometimes striped. Flower with fine anthocyanin spots or sectors. An mutable allele and it often reverts to wild-type.
Notes An En/Spm-related transposon, Tpn1 is inserted in DFR-B gene controlling anthocyanin biosynthesis. Somatic excision causes flecked petals (Inagaki et al. 1994)
