At5g16780: DOT2 (DEFECTIVELY ORGANIZED TRIBUTARIES 2)
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.
