Growth inhibition following microinduction of RBR gene expression

Meristems from Tet∷RBR or Tet∷GUS transgenic plants were either treated with lanolin impregnated with AhTet (+AhTet) or mock induced (−AhTet). Growth response after 5 weeks was classified as either total repression (no new leaf primordia formed); growth retardation (four to five new leaves formed); or normal growth (seven to nine new leaves formed).
