Genetic Control of Flower Development by Homeotic Genes in Antirrhinum Majus

Genetic Control of Flower Development by Homeotic Genes in Antirrhinum Majus

Z Schwarz-Sommer et al. Science.

Abstract

Homeotic mutants have been useful for the study of animal development. Such mutants are also known in plants. The isolation and molecular analysis of several homeotic genes in Antirrhinum majus provide insights into the underlying molecular regulatory mechanisms of flower development. A model is presented of how the characteristic sequential pattern of developing organs, comprising the flower, is established in the process of morphogenesis.
