pMADS3, a petunia class C gene, is the candidate homologue of Arabidopsis AGAMOUS (AG), which is involved in the specification of stamens and carpels. We report the characterization of loss-of-function phenotype of pMADS3 that resulted from silencing of this gene. Silencing of pMADS3 resulted in homeotic conversion of stamens into petaloid structures, whereas the carpels were only weakly affected. Ectopic secondary inflorescences emerged from the interstamenal region in the third whorl, which… CONTINUE READING
