The developmental and morphogenetic process of pistil formation was examined by analysing flowers of wild type and six flower mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana, a small crucifer. The wild type is suggested to originate from two 'pistil-forming units' (carpels) arranged laterally against the axis of the inflorescence at a pistil primordium. Aberrant structures of the pistils of mutants indicate that a set of genes regulate each step of pistil development and morphogenesis, namely arrangement of… CONTINUE READING
