Flowering plants exhibit one of two types of inflorescence architecture: indeterminate, in which the inflorescence grows indefinitely, or determinate, in which a terminal flower is produced. The indeterminate condition is thought to have evolved from the determinate many times, independently. In two mutants in distantly related species, terminal flower 1 in Arabidopsis and centroradialis in Antirrhinum, inflorescences that are normally indeterminate are converted to a determinate architecture… Expand

Inflorescence Meristem Fate Is Dependent on Seed Development and FRUITFULL in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is shown that the indeterminate growth habit of Arabidopsis inflorescences is a facultative condition imposed by the meristematic arrest directed by FUL and the correlative signal of seeds. Expand
A conserved genetic pathway determines inflorescence architecture in Arabidopsis and rice.
TLDR
A conserved regulatory pathway that determines inflorescence architecture in flowering plants is revealed and it is demonstrated that the orthologs of these MADS-box genes in rice determine panicle branching by regulating TFL1-like genes. Expand
The inflorescence architecture of Petunia hybrida is modified by the Arabidopsis thaliana Ap2 gene.
TLDR
Results indicate that theAp2 gene plays a role in the determination of inflorescence meristem identity, but not as a typical A-like function, adding to the existing doubt about the general role of Ap2 gene(s) in floral development. Expand
Floral initiation and inflorescence architecture: a comparative view.
TLDR
This review aims to present a summarized view on what is known about floral initiation genes in different plants, particularly dicotyledonous species, and aim to emphasize their contribution to plant architecture. Expand
Analysis of TFL 1 mutants in Arabidopsis
In Arabidopsis (Flowering Plant) shoot apical meristem (SAM) is converted into inflorescence meristem. Study has been revealed that there are various genes which control this transition. Two types ofExpand
Inflorescence architecture: A developmental genetics approach
TLDR
Six Pisum sativum mutants that alter inflorescence architecture are described that affect morphologically and architecturally distinct aspects of the inflorescence, and interactions among these genes are analyzed. Expand
Turning Meristems into Fortresses.
TLDR
The role of the TFL1-mediated protection of meristem indeterminacy throughout plant development is contextualized and its characterization in numerous species revealed that the T FL1- mediated regulation ofMeristem fate has broader impacts on plant development than originally depicted in A. thaliana. Expand
New insights into the regulation of inflorescence architecture.
TLDR
How the relevant new players and mechanisms account for the development of appropriate inflorescence structures in flowering plants in response to environmental and developmental signals is discussed. Expand
VEGETATIVE1 is essential for development of the compound inflorescence in pea.
TLDR
It is shown that in pea this function is controlled by VEGETATIVE1 (VEG1), whose mutation replaces secondary inflorescences by vegetative branches, suggesting a model for compound inflorescence development based on antagonistic interactions between VEG1 and genes conferring primary inflorescence and floral identity.

TLDR
How little is known concerning the identity of these primordia, the timing of FM specification and commitment in relation to the establishment of FM identity, and the interplay between bract and FM founder cell recruitment and development is outlined. Expand

Control of inflorescence architecture in Antirrhinum
TLDR
It is shown that centroradialis is expressed in the inflorescence apex a few days after floral induction, and interacts with the floral-meristem-identity gene floricaula to regulate flower position and morphology. Expand
terminal flower: a gene affecting inflorescence development in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is proposed that the TFL gene product supports the activity of an inhibitor of flower primordium initiation, which would normally prevent flowers from arising on the inflorescence apex but in tfl mutants it may readily fall below its threshold of activity. Expand
Genetic analysis of the floral initiation process (FLIP) in Arabidopsis
TLDR
Besides their role in establishing the floral program, phenotypes of flower-like lateral shoots in mutant inflorescences suggest that all three, LEAFY, APETALA1 and APETalA2, influence expression of whorl identity genes. Expand
LEAFY controls floral meristem identity in Arabidopsis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that LEAFY is the Arabidopsis homolog of the FLORICAULA gene, which controls floral meristem identity in the distantly related species Antirrhinum majus. Expand
A Mutation in the Arabidopsis TFL1 Gene Affects Inflorescence Meristem Development.
TLDR
The initial phenotypic characterization of an Arabidopsis mutation, terminal flower 1-1 (tfl1-1), that identifies a new genetic locus, TFL1, is presented, suggesting that tFL1 perturbs the establishment and maintenance of the inflorescence meristem. Expand
A developmental switch sufficient for flower initiation in diverse plants
TLDR
Transgenic plants in which the flower-meristem-identity gene LEAFY of Arabidopsis is constitutively expressed are generated, suggesting a new level of regulation during flower development, as indicated by the competence of the main shoot to respond to LEAFy activity. Expand
Early flower development in Arabidopsis.
The early development of the flower of Arabidopsis thaliana is described from initiation until the opening of the bud. The morphogenesis, growth rate, and surface structure of floral organs wereExpand
Complementary floral homeotic phenotypes result from opposite orientations of a transposon at the plena locus of antirrhinum
TLDR
Plena and ovulata phenotypes result from opposite orientations of the transposon Tam3 inserted in the large intron of ple, suggesting that ple is sufficient for promoting sex organ development within the context of the flower. Expand
Morphology of flowers and inflorescences
TLDR
The flower as a formal and functional entity - aspects of the biology of pollination and dispersal mechanisms of self- pollination mechanisms which facilitate cross-pollination the fruit (the flower at the stage when the seeds are ripe) infructescences. Expand
Purification, cloning, and tissue distribution of a 23-kDa rat protein isolated by morphine affinity chromatography.
TLDR
Northern blot analysis revealed p23k transcripts in rat brain, liver, and the mouse x rat neuroblastoma-glioma NG108-14 cell line, suggesting this protein may be associated with such a receptor or be related to a protein that has been shown to be cross-linked to the opioid peptide beta-endorphin.
