The formation and patterning of leaves: recent advances.

Abstract:

Leaves, the plant's major photosynthetic organs, form through the activity of groups of pluripotent cells, termed shoot apical meristems (SAMs), located at the growing tips of plants. Leaves develop with a dorso-ventral asymmetry, with the adaxial surface adjacent to the meristem and the abaxial surface developing at a distance from it. Molecular genetic studies have shown that the correct specification of adaxial/abaxial polarity requires communication between the incipient leaf and the meri...
