Novel marker genes for early leaf development indicate spatial regulation of carbohydrate metabolism within the apical meristem.


To identify genes expressed at the earliest stages of leaf development, we have performed a differential display analysis using portions of meristems destined to form leaves. Our analysis led to the identification of five genes showing an asymmetric pattern of gene expression within the meristem associated with leaf formation. Surprisingly, three of these… (More)
