The results obtained by Peng et al.1 are consistent with an increased amount of outcrossing in hth mutants ofArabidopsis thaliana. Some of the results, such as the acquisition of a novel transgene, would be difficult to explain by any other mechanism. Outcrossing was a possibility that we thoroughly explored early on in our investigation2, but we discounted it as an explanation because it was inconsistent with many of our experimental results.
