Question: the lancet mutant of tomatoes has simple narrow leaves instead...

Question details

The lancet mutant of tomatoes has simple narrow leaves instead of compound (-branched). The mutant lancet allele is dominant, but a homozygote cannot be retrieved. Characterization of the wild-type LANCET allele demonstrated that it encodes a transcription factor (a regulatory protein). The mutant lancet allele displays a nucleotide change that results in loss of the start codon (this means that no protein is made from this allele). This suggests that lancet plants havea transcription factor. amount of LANCET double the normal O absolutely no the same one third the normal half the normal
