cv. Rheinlands Ruhm
flacca (flc) ABA ABA deficiency. Defective for maturation of ABA-aldehyde oxidase Mo cofactor LA0673
cv. Rheinlands Ruhm
notabilis (not) ABA ABA deficiency. Defective for NCED (carotenoid cleavage enzyme). LA0617
cv. Lukulus
gibberellin deficient 1 (gib1) GA GA deficiency. Defective for ent-copalyl diphosphate synthase (CPS) LA2893

gibberellin deficient 2 (gib2) GA GA deficiency. Defective for conversion of ent-7α-hydroxykaurenoic acid to GA12-aldehyde LA2894
cv. Moneymaker
gibberellin deficien t3 (gib3) GA GA deficiency. Defective for ent-kaurene synthase (KS) LA2895
cv. Moneymaker
procera (pro) GA Constitutive response. Contains a point mutation in a gene that converts the VHVID putative DNA-binding domain of the tomato DELLA gene into VHEID LA0565
cv. Condine Red
curl 3 (cu3) BR Decreased sensitivity. Defective for BR receptor (LeBRI1) found in S. pimpinellifolium LA2398
