Disruption of an Arabidopsis cytoplasmic ribosomal protein S13-homologous gene by transposon-mediated mutagenesis causes aberrant growth and development.
Ito T, Kim GT, Shinozaki K. Plant J. 2000 May;22(3):257-64.

...... a Dissociation (Ds) transposon-inserted Arabidopsis mutant of a gene (AtRPS13A) homologous to cytoplasmic ribosomal protein (RP) S13. We named our mutant pointed first leaf (pfl) 2 because of its similar phenotype to the pfl1 mutant of the RPS18 gene. This mutant caused multiple phenotypic changes, including aberrant leaf and trichome morphology, retarded root growth, and late flowering. Microscopic analysis showed that the first leaf blade of pfl2 contained a significantly ......
