Organization of a region of tissue in a plant that is composed of one or more undifferentiated cells capable of undergoing mitosis and differentiation, thereby effecting growth and development of a plant by giving rise to more meristem or specialized tissue.

Encodes a homolog of the yeast TOT4/KTI12 protein. Yeast TOT4/KTI12 associates with Elongator, a multisubunit complex that binds the RNA polymerase II transcription elongation complex. Ds insertion mutant has enlarged shoot apical region, 4 to 6 long slender leaves followed by spike-like structures, short roots.
Encodes acetyl-CoA carboxylase. Mutant displays uncoordinated cell divisions which are enhanced by cytokinins. Mutant also has aberrant organization of the apical region in the embryo and abnormal root and shoot development. Essential for very long chain fatty acid elongation.
Floral homeotic gene encoding a MADS domain protein homologous to SRF transcription factors. Specifies floral meristem and sepal identity. Required for the transcriptional activation of AGAMOUS. Interacts with LEAFY.Binds to promoter and regulates the expression of flowering time genes SVP, SOC1 and AGL24.
Encodes a novel protein of unknown function that is essential for embryonic development. Severe loss of function alleles are embryo lethal. Analysis of a partial loss of function allele indicates a role for EMB1611 in regulation of endoreduplication and maintenance of meristem cell fate. It appears to be required for maintaining the CLV-WUS regulatory pathway.
Encodes a protein most similar to the POLTERGEIST locus. Double mutant analysis of loss of function alleles indicate PLL1 functions redundantly with POL to regulate meristem size and pedicel length. Acts in a dose dependent manner with POL to suppress the clv1, clv2 and clv3 phenotypes.
Encodes a member of the YABBY family of transcriptional regulators that is involved in abaxial cell type specification in leaves and fruits. YAB1 acts in a non-cell autonomous fashion within the meristem to affect phyllotactic patterning. The non-autonomous effect on the central region of the meristem is mediated through the activity if Lateral Suppressor (LAS).
Encodes a protein with an important role in cell division control and plant morphogenesis and may also play a role in genome maintenance. May be involved in mitosis through interaction with TSA1. In cells synchronized for cell division, TSA1 and TSK relocalize to ends of spindle microtubules that are ahead of separating chromatids during metaphase and anaphase of mitosis.
Encodes a protein belonging to SART-1 family. The gene is expressed in the basal region of the developing embryo during heart stage. Phenotypic analyses of dot2 mutants suggest that this protein plays a role in root, shoot, and flower development. dot2 mutants are dwarved plants that display an aberrant spurred leaf venation pattern and fail to flower. In the roots DOT2 appears to be require for normal meristem organization and maintenance and the proper expression of PIN and PLT genes.
Encodes a transmembrane protein of the tetraspanin (TET) family, one of 17 members found in Arabidopsis. Double mutant analysis showed that TRN1 and TRN2 act in the same pathway. Required for the maintenance of both the radial pattern of tissue differentiation in the root and for the subsequent circumferential pattern within the epidermis.
Encodes a protein that is homologous to Cog7, a subunit of the conserved oligomeric Golgi (COG) complex, which is required for the normal morphology and function of the Golgi apparatus. It is likely to be involved in transport or retention of Golgi-localized proteins and in maintenance of Golgi morphology.
Encodes a large plant-specific protein of unknown function, with conserved domains also found in a variety of signaling proteins, In trn mutants, the leaf venation network had a severely reduced complexity: incomplete loops, no tertiary or quaternary veins, and vascular islands. The leaf laminas were asymmetric and narrow because of a severely reduced cell number. TRN1 is required for the maintenance of both the radial pattern of tissue differentiation in the root and for the subsequent circumferential pattern within the epidermis. Double mutant analysis showed that TRN1 and TRN2 act in the same pathway.
Chromatin Assembly Factor-1 (CAF-1) p60 subunit. Involved in organization of the shoot and root apical meristems. In Arabidopsis, the three CAF-1 subunits are encoded by FAS1, FAS2 and, most likely, MSI1, respectively. Mutations in FAS1 or FAS2 lead to increased frequency of homologous recombination and T-DNA integration in Arabidopsis.
The process that gives rise to the configuration of the constituent parts of an anatomical structure. This process pertains to the physical shaping of a rudimentary structure. Anatomical structures can be macroscopic such as a carpel, or microscopic such as an acrosome.
