Abstract: During early flower development in Arabidopsis, floral stem cells proliferate and produce a sufficient amount of cells that are recruited for organogenesis. However, after the central organ primordia initiate, stem cell activity in the floral meristem is terminated to ensure the differentiation of a fixed number of floral organs. Underlying this process, the genetic programme regulating the fate of floral meristems undergoes a shift from a spatially balanced signalling scheme for stem cell maintenance to a temporally controlled transcriptional scheme for stem cell termination. Precise timing of stem cell termination is a key issue for flower development, which is secured by the orchestration of multiple regulators in transcriptional and epigenetic regulation. ©The Authors.
