Cloning of genes involved in the specification of floral meristem and organ identity and in the transition to flowering in some model plants such as Arabidopsis, Antirrhinum, and Petunia during the last decade represents an unprecedented step forward towards an understanding of floral development. Most of these genes belong to conserved and widespread gene families encoding transcription factors, such as the MADS-box genes, FLO-like, and AP2-like genes. Current work on the molecular genetic… CONTINUE READING
