The filifolium1 mutation perturbs shoot architecture in Zea mays (Poaceae).

Abstract:

Plant architecture is elaborated through the activity of shoot apical meristems (SAMs), which produce repeating units known as phytomers, that are comprised of leaf, node, internode, and axillary bud. Insight into how SAMs function and how individual phytomer components are related to each other can been obtained through characterization of recessive mutants with perturbed shoot development. In this study, we characterized a new mutant to further understand mechanisms underlying shoot develop...
