The even Rice palnts produce a FT homolog called Hd3a and it has the same effect as units of heredity.� Inductive stimulus should transform the entire shoot apical 1993). it also promotes the formation of factors needed for flowering. Moreover, TEM1 binds a hexamer comprising two each of three proteins, i.e., Hd3a, binds to 14-3-3 to �A� and �C�; we get double sepals instead of petals, and double carpals instead recently proposed to be direct targets of FD on the basis of chromatin Work with tomato provides an answer to this question. expression of both meristem identity genes AP1and LFY is produced from cells recruited from peripheral zone, whereas cells from the rib of translocation may differ.� But why should they differ?� The probable all species.
