The YABBY gene family was identified recently by homology to CRABS CLAW, a gene involved in carpel and nectary development in Arabidopsis. Several of the transcription factors encoded by the YABBY genes appear to have conserved roles in specifying abaxial cell fate in leaves, floral organs and ovules.
