  • We use the model to explore the parameter space that allows stem cell maintenance, and to simulate the consequences of mutations, gene misexpression and cell ablations.

  • In plants, this has been achieved by expressing Simulation for WUS misexpression in the stem cell domain.

  • Starting from an equilibrated wild-type meristem, misexpression of

  • However, all previous studies performed on various mutants or constitutive misexpression lines did not allow studying the immediate consequences of system perturbations.

  • Experimental evidence from WUS misexpression shows that only outer cell layers acquire stem cell identity.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Contrary to the cascade model of misexpression, we find that there is considerable stage-specific autonomy of regulatory breakdown in hybrids, with the larval and adult stages showing significantly more hybrid misexpression as compared to the pupal stage.

  • However, this has prompted the suggestion that misexpression in adult hybrids results from the downstream cascading effects of a subset of genes improperly regulated in early development.

  • Evidence in favour of this latter hypothesis is supported further by the misexpression of proAtHB8: GUS.

  • Furthermore, although endogenous SoxB1 limits nuclear β-catenin activity and SoxB1 misexpression strongly antagonizes it, SoxB1 morphants have greatly
