Is the lodicule a petal: molecular evidence?
Tsukuba, Japan. In Plant Sci, 2012
Recent studies in rice, maize, and barley further demonstrated that the molecular genetic mechanism of lodicule development includes the PI-lineage of B-class, C-class, SEP-like, AGL6-like, and AP2-like genes.
Transcriptional and hormonal signaling control of Arabidopsis seed development.
Saint Paul, United States. In Curr Opin Plant Biol, 2010
In this review, we shall discuss the regulation of endosperm proliferation by a few newly identified pathways involving transcriptional, epigenetic, and imprinting regulators, the regulation of integument or seed coat development by a few transcription factors, and the regulation of embryo proliferation by AP2-like and bHLH proteins and phytohormones.
Small RNAs and developmental timing in plants.
Philadelphia, United States. In Curr Opin Genet Dev, 2009
These miRNAs target two families of plant-specific transcription factors (respectively, SBP-box and AP2-like factors) that cooperate to regulate phase-specific vegetative traits, as well as genes involved in flowering.
