TOPLESS mutant in plants

Post by hullcityfan » Mon Jan 15, 2007 9:00 pm

Hiya guys,

Not sure if any of you have heard of this but a mutant in plants known as TOPLESS was recently discovered in plants. The original study is attached below.

The TOPLESS gene usually encodes a co-repressor transcription factor which silences genes required for root development in the top half of the plant.

TOPLESS mutants effectively have a root system where the shoots should be!!

I have some courswork on this gene would anyone who maybe knows a little more about this gene/protein be willing to help me??

Thank you,
hullcityfan
