Cloning of the Arabidopsis WIGGUM gene identifies a role for farnesylation in meristem development.

Abstract

Control of cellular proliferation in plant meristems is important for maintaining the correct number and position of developing organs. One of the genes identified in the control of floral and apical meristem size and floral organ number in Arabidopsis thaliana is WIGGUM. In wiggum mutants, one of the most striking phenotypes is an increase in floral organ… (More)
