Abstract

The CCLS4 gene of white campion is specifically expressed in anther epidermis and endothecium from pre- to post-meiotic stages. We report on a detailed in situ analysis of the gene's expression and show that it is a marker of the floral third whorl. The gene is expressed (1) in the anther (epidermis, parietal cells and the derived endothecium) in normally developing stamens and (2) in distinct sub-domains of third-whorl epidermis in mutants exhibiting aberrant states of parietal differentiation. Our results suggest that CCLS4 may fulfil different functions during pre- and post-meiotic anther development and reveal the complex role parietal cells may play during early stamen formation.
