Genetic studies demonstrate that two Arabidopsis genes, CAULIFLOWER and APETALA1, encode partially redundant activities involved in the formation of floral meristems, the first step in the development of flowers. Isolation of the CAULIFLOWER gene from Arabidopsis reveals that it is closely related in sequence to APETALA1. Like APETALA1, CAULIFLOWER is expressed in young flower primordia and encodes a MADS-domain, indicating that it may function as a transcription factor. Analysis of the… CONTINUE READING
