Among the genes controlling the differentiation and maintenance of epidermal cell fate are members of the HD-ZIP IV class family of plant-specific transcription factors, most of which are specifically expressed in the epidermis of tissues. Here, we report the functional analysis of the maize HD-ZIP IV gene OCL4 (outer cell layer 4) via the phenotypic analysis of two insertional mutants, and of OCL4-RNAi transgenic plants. In all three materials, the macrohairs, one of the three types of… CONTINUE READING
