The regulation of cell differentiation at meristems is crucial to developmental patterning in plants. Rapid progress has been made in identifying the genes that regulate differentiation and the receptor-mediated signalling events that have a key role in this process. In particular, we are now learning how the CLAVATA receptor kinase signalling pathway promotes stem cell differentiation in balance with the initiation of stem cells by the transcription factor WUSCHEL.
