Aberrant Shoot Development in palmyra

Shoots of plm mutants have aberrant leaf development, and are deficient in the establishment of the shoot apical meristem. Here, the shoot apex and leaf of the plm mutant (a and c) are compared to the shoot apex and leaf origin in wild type Medicago truncatula (b and d). c = cotyledon, u = unifoliate (first true) leaf, and t = trifoliate leaf.
