Flower monosymmetry contributes to specialized interactions between plants and their insect pollinators. In the magnoliids, flower monosymmetry is exhibited only in the Aristolochiaceae (Piperales). Aristolochia flowers develop a calyx-derived monosymmetric perianth that enhances pollination success by a flytrap mechanism. Aristolochia arborea forms additionally a special perianth outgrowth that mimics a mushroom to attract flies, the mushroom mimicry structure (MMS). In core eudicots, members…

Evolutionary diversification of CYC/TB1-like TCP homologs and their recruitment for the control of branching and floral morphology in Papaveraceae (basal eudicots).

A comparative functional study in Ranunculales between Eschscholzia californica and Cysticapnos vesicaria, two species of Papaveraceae with actinomorphic and zygomorphic flowers, provides evidence of the importance of TCP/CYC-like genes in the promotion of morphological diversity across angiosperms.

CYCLOIDEA 2 Clade Genes: Key Players in the Control of Floral Symmetry, Inflorescence Architecture, and Reproductive Organ Development

Data from literature is discussed to suggest that CYC-like genes are also co-opted to regulate stamen and carpel differentiation likely throughout their interaction with the cell cycle and flower organ identity genes.

Flower Development and Perianth Identity Candidate Genes in the Basal Angiosperm Aristolochia fimbriata (Piperales: Aristolochiaceae)

Aristolochia fimbriata (Aristolochiaceae: Piperales) exhibits highly synorganized flowers with a single convoluted structure forming a petaloid perianth that surrounds the gynostemium, putatively

Class II TCP gene evolution in perianth-bearing Piperales and their contribution to the bilateral calyx in Aristolochia.

expression analyses of all paralogs of class II TCP genes in Aristolochia fimbriata point to a role of CYC and CIN genes in maintaining differential perianth expansion during mid and late flower developmental stages by promoting cell division in the distal and ventral portion of the limb.

The expression and interactions of ABCE ‐ class and CYC 2 ‐ like genes in the capitulum development of Chrysanthemum lavandulifolium

It is indicated that A-class genes in chrysanthemums interacted with CYC2-like genes and might be involved in the identity of reproductive organs and ray florets, especially the differentiation of disc and Ray floret corollas.

Comprehensive Bioinformatics and Expression Analysis of TCP Transcription Factors in Liriodendron chinense Reveals Putative Abiotic Stress Regulatory Roles

A pivotal role for the TCP gene family during external environmental stresses in L. chinense is suggested, paving the way for further research on the functional verification of Liriodendron chinense TCPs.

Insights into angiosperm evolution, floral development and chemical biosynthesis from the Aristolochia fimbriata genome

A new, high-quality genome sequence of Aristolochia fimbriata is presented, a species that, similar to Amborella trichopoda, lacks further whole-genome duplications since the origin of extant angiosperms and is an excellent reference for inferences of angiosperm genome evolution.

Evolution and Expression Patterns of TCP Genes in Asparagales

This is the first large scale analysis of TCP-like genes in Asparagales that will serve as a platform for in-depth functional studies in emerging model monocots by comparison with previously reported functions in core eudicots and monocot.

Phytoplasma SAP11 effector destabilization of TCP transcription factors differentially impact development and defence of Arabidopsis versus maize

It is shown that a SAP11 homolog of Maize Bushy Stunt Phytoplasma (MBSP), which has a range primarily restricted to maize, destabilizes only TB1/CYC TCPs, and class II TCPs have overlapping but also distinct roles in regulating development and defence in a dicot and a monocot plant species that is likely to shape SAP11 effector evolution depending on the phy toplasma host range.



Evolution and diversification of the CYC/TB1 gene family in Asteraceae--a comparative study in Gerbera (Mutisieae) and sunflower (Heliantheae).

Comparison analysis of the CYCLOIDEA/TEOSINTE BRANCHED1 (CYC/TB1) gene family in Gerbera hybrida and Helianthus annuus, two species that represent distant tribes within Asteraceae, suggests that the expansion and the apparent conservation of especially the CYC2 clade CYC/ TB1-like genes are associated with the evolution of the increased complexity of the Asteraceae inflorescence architecture.

Diversification of CYCLOIDEA-like TCP genes in the basal eudicot families Fumariaceae and Papaveraceae s.str.

Phylogenetic analysis of the "ECE" (CYC/TB1) clade reveals duplications predating the core eudicots.

Bayesian analyses indicate that there are three major copies of "CYC" in the ECE clade, and that duplications leading to these copies predate the core eudicots, and the phylogenetic placement of major duplications in the "ECE" (CYC/TB1) clade of TCP transcription factors is determined.

Functional diversification of duplicated CYC2 clade genes in regulation of inflorescence development in Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae).

Functional analysis indicates that modification of the ancestral network of TCP factors has, through gene duplications, led to the establishment of new expression domains and to functional diversification of the GhCYC5 gene.

Diversity and Evolution of CYCLOIDEA-Like TCP Genes in Relation to Flower Development in Papaveraceae[C][W][OA]

Hypotheses concerning the ancestral pattern of expression and function of CYC-like genes and their possible role in floral development of Papaveraceae species leading to bisymmetric buds are discussed.

A TCP domain transcription factor controls flower type specification along the radial axis of the Gerbera (Asteraceae) inflorescence

Both expression patterns and transgenic phenotypes suggest that GhCYC2 is involved in differentiation among Gerbera flower types, providing the first molecular evidence that CYC-like TCP factors take part in defining the complex inflorescence structure of the Asteraceae, a major determinant of the family's evolutionary success.

Gradual disintegration of the floral symmetry gene network is implicated in the evolution of a wind-pollination syndrome

It is proposed that changes in the expression of duplicated CYC-like genes led to the evolution of radial flower symmetry in Aragoa/Plantago, and that further disintegration of the symmetry gene pathway resulted in the wind-pollination syndrome of Plantago.

Analysis of occasionally occurring peloric Iberis flower variants and comparative functional studies of TCP homologs in Arabidopsis demonstrate the importance of an altered temporal IaTCP1 expression within the Brassicaceae to govern the formation of a monosymmetric corolla.

Evolution of fruit development genes in flowering plants

A comprehensive search of SHP, IND, ALC, SPT, and RPL homologs across core-eudicot, basal eudicots, monocots and basal angiosperms is done to hypothesize what parts of the network for fruit development in Brassicaceae, in particular regarding direct and indirect targets of FUL, might be conserved across angios perms.

Changes in expression pattern of the teosinte branched1-like genes in the Zingiberales provide a mechanism for evolutionary shifts in symmetry across the order.

This study adds to the growing body of evidence that CYC/TB1-like genes have been repeatedly recruited throughout the course of evolution to generate bilateral floral symmetry (zygomorphy).
