    The Arabidopsis AGL3 gene was previously identified on the basis of sequence similarity to the floral homeotic gene AGAMOUS (AG), which encodes a protein with a conserved MADS domain that is also found in human and yeast transcription ..

    ..Thus the evolutionary developmental genetics of B(sister) genes can probably only be understood as part of a complex and redundant gene network that may govern ovule formation in a conserved manner, which has yet to be fully explored. ..
