A Gateway Cloning Vector Set for High-Throughput Functional Analysis of Genes in Planta[w]
The current challenge, now that two plant genomes have been sequenced, is to assign a function to the increasing number of predicted genes. In Arabidopsis, approximately 55% of genes can be assignedExpand

Maternal control of embryogenesis by MEDEA, a polycomb group gene in Arabidopsis.
The gametophytic maternal effect mutant medea (mea) shows aberrant growth regulation during embryogenesis in Arabidopsis thaliana. Embryos derived from mea eggs grow excessively and die during seedExpand

The Arabidopsis Somatic Embryogenesis Receptor Kinase 1 Gene Is Expressed in Developing Ovules and Embryos and Enhances Embryogenic Competence in Culture
We report here the isolation of the Arabidopsis SOMATIC EMBRYOGENESIS RECEPTOR-LIKE KINASE 1 (AtSERK1) gene and we demonstrate its role during establishment of somatic embryogenesis in culture. TheExpand

Arabidopsis MSI1 is a component of the MEA/FIE Polycomb group complex and required for seed development
Seed development in angiosperms initiates after double fertilization, leading to the formation of a diploid embryo and a triploid endosperm. The active repression of precocious initiation of certainExpand

The Polycomb-group protein MEDEA regulates seed development by controlling expression of the MADS-box gene PHERES1.
The Polycomb-group (PcG) proteins MEDEA, FERTILIZATION INDEPENDENT ENDOSPERM, and FERTILIZATION INDEPENDENT SEED2 regulate seed development in Arabidopsis by controlling embryo and endospermExpand

Regulation of Arabidopsis tapetum development and function by DYSFUNCTIONAL TAPETUM1 (DYT1) encoding a putative bHLH transcription factor
In flowering plants, male fertility depends on proper cell differentiation in the anther. However, relatively little is known about the genes that regulate anther cell differentiation and function.Expand

The FERONIA Receptor-like Kinase Mediates Male-Female Interactions During Pollen Tube Reception
In flowering plants, signaling between the male pollen tube and the synergid cells of the female gametophyte is required for fertilization. In the Arabidopsis thaliana mutant feronia (fer),Expand

Cellular efflux of auxin catalyzed by the Arabidopsis MDR/PGP transporter AtPGP1.
Directional transport of the phytohormone auxin is required for the establishment and maintenance of plant polarity, but the underlying molecular mechanisms have not been fully elucidated. PlantExpand

The Arabidopsis thaliana MEDEA Polycomb group protein controls expression of PHERES1 by parental imprinting
The maternally expressed Arabidopsis thaliana Polycomb group protein MEDEA (MEA) controls expression of the MADS-box gene PHERES1 (PHE1). Here, we show that PHE1 is mainly paternally expressed butExpand
