The early diversification of monocot LOFSEP genes and their distinct expression patterns suggests that they might have contributed to generate diversity in the reproductive development among monocots.

Based on these observations, we postulate that grass-specific LOFSEP genes sequentially control spikelet development, in particular leafy organs in the spikelet. The five rice MADS-box genes are expressed sequentially from the initiation of spikelet meristem to floral organ development, so that they may control the entire process of spikelet development. This is in contrast to the four SEP genes of Arabidopsis, which redundantly act to regulate floral meristem identity and organ identities of all four whorls Pelaz et al.

Our study also supports the idea that the LOFSEP subgroup of SEP genes, a class of genes specific to grasses, plays a crucial role in the control of spikelets that are unique to grasses. Analysis of the function of PAP2 orthologs in other grasses will facilitate our understanding of the molecular basis of the evolution of spikelet development.

Similarly, rice SEP proteins could form a tetrameric complex to regulate spikelet and floret development. The significance of an AP1 and LHS1 combination for the determination of glumes and florets in grasses has been demonstrated Preston and Kellogg Identifying partners of PAP2 in the transcription factor complex will be a prerequisite for further elucidation of the role of PAP2.

Moreover, isolation of the PAP1 gene and determination of genetic and molecular interactions between PAP1 and PAP2 will lead to a more comprehensive understanding of rice spikelet development.

Plants grown in a glasshouse under natural conditions were used for the analysis of pap phenotypes. For mRNA extraction and in situ hybridization analysis, plants cv. Spikelets in wild-type cv. Nipponbare and pap were fixed in 2.

Subsequently, samples were dried at critical point, sputter-coated with platinum and observed under a scanning electron microscope S; Hitachi, Japan at an accelerating voltage of 10 kV. Rough mapping of the PAP2 locus was performed with simple sequence repeat SSR markers using the mutant F 2 plants obtained from a cross between pap and wild-type cv.

Kasalath plants. For fine mapping, cleaved amplified polymorphic sequence CAPS markers were generated based on single nucleotide polymorphisms identified in nucleotide sequences between Nipponbare and Kasalath. The fragment containing the whole region of the OsMADS34 gene including the promoter, the coding region and the terminator was cloned into the binary vector pPZP Fuse et al. In situ hybridizations were carried out as previously described Kyozuka et al.

Abstract In rice panicle development, new meristems are generated sequentially in an organized manner and acquire their identity in a time- and position-dependent manner.

Introduction The basic architecture of the inflorescence is determined by the identity and activity of meristems. Open in a separate window. Results The panicle of the pap mutant produces more rachis branches A wild-type panicle contains several primary rachis branches that are produced by the inflorescence meristem IM. Abnormal morphology of the pap spikelet The spikelet meristem produces lateral organs in a distichous phyllotaxy.

Expression pattern of the five rice SEP genes during early stages of panicle development For a better understanding of the functions of the rice SEP genes in panicle development, the expression patterns of the five SEP genes during early stages of panicle development were examined Fig. Discussion PAP2 is a positive regulator of spikelet meristem identity in rice Here we describe pap2 , a new rice mutant that exhibits abnormal development of the panicle.

Function of SEP subfamily MADS-box genes in rice panicle development A large number of studies have shown that molecular mechanisms controlling the development of inner floral organs are relatively well conserved between grasses and eudicots Kater et al.

He speculated, lost his own fortune and funds entrusted to him by poor seafaring men, and died disgraced, leaving his children nothing. But when all was said, he had come up from the sea himself, had built up a proud little business with no capital but his own skill and foresight, and had proved himself a man.

In his daughter, John Bergson recognized the strength of will, and the simple direct way of thinking things out, that had characterized his father in his better days.
