We investigated the potential of double-stranded RNA interference (RNAi) with gene activity in Arabidopsis thaliana. To construct transformation vectors that produce RNAs capable of duplex formation, gene-specific sequences in the sense and antisense orientations were linked and placed under the control of a strong viral promoter. When introduced into the(More)
Dynamins are large GTPases that act in multiple vesicular trafficking events. We identified 14 loss-of-function alleles of the C. elegans dynamin gene, dyn-1, that are defective in the removal of apoptotic cells. dyn-1 functions in engulfing cells to control the internalization and degradation of apoptotic cells. dyn-1 acts in the genetic pathway composed(More)
Mutations in the PERIANTHIA (PAN) gene of Arabidopsis thaliana specifically transform flowers from tetramerous to largely pentamerous, which is a characteristic of flowers of ancestral plants. We have cloned the PAN gene and here we show that it encodes a member of the basic region/leucine zipper class of transcription factors. Immunohistochemical analysis(More)
