Mutations in a floral homeotic gene DUPLICATED (DP) in the Japanese morning glory (Ipomoea nil) cause a substitution of reproductive organs to perianth organs (petals and sepals). This phenotype is similar to loss-of-function phenotypes of the C-function MCM1, AGAMOUS, DEFICIENS and SRF (MADS)-box gene family of transcription factors. DP was isolated using the consensus sequence of C-function MADS-box genes. Its intron-exon structure was well conserved beyond species, and it belongs to the… CONTINUE READING
