Abstract

The development of the floral organs is specified by the combinations of three classes of gene for organ identity in the 'ABC' model. Recently, molecular genetic studies have shown this model is applicable to grass plants as well as most eudicots. Transcription factor complexes of ABC and homologous proteins form the molecular basis of the ABC model.
