- Chuck G, Cigan A, Saeteurn K, Hake S. The heterochronic maize mutant Corngrass1 results from overexpression of a tandem microRNA. Nat Genet. 2007;39:544-9 pubmed publisher..By altering the relative levels of both microRNAs, it is possible to either prolong or shorten juvenile development in maize, thus providing a mechanism for how species-level heterochronic changes can occur in nature...
- Chuck G, Muszynski M, Kellogg E, Hake S, Schmidt R. The control of spikelet meristem identity by the branched silkless1 gene in maize. Science. 2002;298:1238-41 pubmed..Its expression pattern suggests that signaling pathways regulate meristem identity from lateral domains of the spikelet meristem. ..
- Chuck G, Candela H, Hake S. Big impacts by small RNAs in plant development. Curr Opin Plant Biol. 2009;12:81-6 pubmed publisher..Integrating these unique functions into the overall scheme for plant growth will give a more complete picture of how they have evolved as unique developmental systems. ..
- Chuck G, Meeley R, Hake S. Floral meristem initiation and meristem cell fate are regulated by the maize AP2 genes ids1 and sid1. Development. 2008;135:3013-9 pubmed publisher..Thus, although the targets of the AP2 genes are conserved between maize and Arabidopsis, the genes themselves have adopted novel meristem functions in monocots...
