Study of the effect of the gene ERECTA2 on the development of Arabidopsis thaliana shoot

Study of the effect of the gene ERECTA2 on the development of Arabidopsis thaliana shoot The role of the gene ER2 in plant development has been studied by the analysis of the erecta2 (er2) mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. It was shown that the mutation er2 provides pleiotropic effect on the development of all aboveground organs. It induces shortening and thickening of the stem, leaves and all flower organs, though it does not change the sensitivity to gibberellin. Changes in the morphology of the shoot organs are due to the changes in cell polarity. The cells get wider and shorter compared to the wild type. It was found that the gene ER2 is located in the lower arm of the chromosome 1. It complementarily interacts with the gene ER that plays an important role in the control of intercellular interactions. Russian Journal of Developmental Biology Springer Journals
