accumulation of anthocyanins (purple colouration) in cotyledons of developing embryos; dark-grown seedlings resemble light-grown wild-type seedlings having short hypocotyl, open and enlarged cotyledons, accumulation of anthocyanins, chloroplast-like plastid differentiation; high expression of light-induced genes in dark-grown plants; light-grown seedlings have open (purple) cotyledons, short roots, small abnormally shaped purple shoots, usually produce several small leaves before development is arrested (lethal); maintained as heterozygote; same as fus7-1 and emb143.
