Arabidopsis flowers develop from groups of undifferentiated cells on the flank of an inflorescence meristem. The cells in these flower primordia must somehow assess their position within the primordium and differentiate accordingly to produce a flower with a precisely defined pattern of organ types and positions. The molecular mechanisms by which this is accomplished are largely unknown. We are studying a set of genes whose mutations give homeotic phenotypes in Arabidopsis flowers. A genetic… CONTINUE READING
