  1. Reciprocal testcrosses were performed with plants homozygous for one or two AtMIKC* mutations, and heterozygous for another AtMIKC* mutation. The total number of progeny analyzed (n) and transmission efficiency (TE; expressed as percentage, as defined by Howden and coworkers [59]) of the segregating mutant allele relative to that of the wild-type allele are presented, together with the χ2 value for transmission in each cross. Significant differences are identified between transmission of mutant and wild-type alleles at *α = 0.10 and **α = 0.01. ND, not done.
