Abstract:

The switch from vegetative to reproductive development ultimately results in the production of the reproductive structures, the flowers. This switch necessitates an identity change of the primordium precursor cells in the shoot apical meristem. The identity change likely requires large scale signaling and transcriptional changes downstream of the meristem identity regulator and plant specific transcription factor LEAFY. Here we describe our progress towards identification and characterization of factors acting immediately downstream of LEAFY in regulating meristem identity.
