Abstract
The spontaneously appearing rogue phenotype in Pisum sativum L. was the first reported and studied case of the epigenetic phenomenon paramutation. Although over 80 years have passed since the determination of the aberrant, defying the Mendelian rules, inheritance of this phenotype, no research data have been published aiming at to uncover the molecular mechanisms that underlie the establishment, maintenance and inheritance of the rogue traits.
