Genetic and molecular mechanisms of pattern formation in Arabidopsis flower development



Genetic and molecular mechanisms of pattern formation in Arabidopsis flower development



Journal of Plant Research 111(1102): 233-242, June



One of the great unanswered questions in the biology of both plants and animals is "How do simple groups of embryonic cells develop into complex and highly structured organisms, or parts of organisms?" The answers are only beginning to be known; the processes involved include establishment of positional information, and its interpretation into patterns of cell division and cellular differentiation. One remarkable and attractive example of the formation of a complex structure from a simple group of cells is the development of a flower, with its characteristic types, numbers and patterns of floral organs. Because of the ease with which plants (especially the plant Arabidopsis thaliana) can be manipulated in the laboratory, flowers provide a unique opportunity to learn some of the fundamental rules of development
