Abstract

Flowers and shoots are derived from specialized groups of stem cells termed meristems. Recent studies in Arabidopsis have identified factors that contribute to meristem structure and identity, such as CLAVATA1, CLAVATA3, and SHOOTMERISTEMLESS, which act in both shoot and flower meristems, as well as LEAFY and APETALA1 which specifically determine a floral fate.
