  1. Dorca Fornell C, Gregis V, Grandi V, Coupland G, Colombo L, Kater M. The Arabidopsis SOC1-like genes AGL42, AGL71 and AGL72 promote flowering in the shoot apical and axillary meristems. Plant J. 2011;67:1006-17 pubmed publisher
    ..Our data reveal roles for AGL42, AGL71 and AGL72 in the floral transition, demonstrate their genetic interactions with SOC1 and suggest that their roles differ in the apical and axillary meristems...
  2. Battaglia R, Brambilla V, Colombo L, Stuitje A, Kater M. Functional analysis of MADS-box genes controlling ovule development in Arabidopsis using the ethanol-inducible alc gene-expression system. Mech Dev. 2006;123:267-76 pubmed
  3. Brambilla V, Battaglia R, Colombo M, Masiero S, Bencivenga S, Kater M, et al. Genetic and molecular interactions between BELL1 and MADS box factors support ovule development in Arabidopsis. Plant Cell. 2007;19:2544-56 pubmed
    ..We propose a model for ovule development that explains how the balance between carpel identity activity and ovule identity activity is established by a MADS box homeodomain protein complex. ..
  4. Colombo M, Masiero S, Vanzulli S, Lardelli P, Kater M, Colombo L. AGL23, a type I MADS-box gene that controls female gametophyte and embryo development in Arabidopsis. Plant J. 2008;54:1037-48 pubmed publisher
    ..Electron microscopy analysis revealed that this phenotype is due to the absence of chloroplasts, strongly suggesting that AGL23 is involved in controlling the biogenesis of organelles during embryo development. ..
  5. Gregis V, Sessa A, Colombo L, Kater M. AGAMOUS-LIKE24 and SHORT VEGETATIVE PHASE determine floral meristem identity in Arabidopsis. Plant J. 2008;56:891-902 pubmed publisher
    ..Furthermore, our results explain how AP1 switches from a floral meristem identity factor to a component that controls floral organ identity. ..
  6. Gregis V, Sessa A, Dorca Fornell C, Kater M. The Arabidopsis floral meristem identity genes AP1, AGL24 and SVP directly repress class B and C floral homeotic genes. Plant J. 2009;60:626-37 pubmed publisher
  7. Matias Hernandez L, Battaglia R, Galbiati F, Rubes M, Eichenberger C, Grossniklaus U, et al. VERDANDI is a direct target of the MADS domain ovule identity complex and affects embryo sac differentiation in Arabidopsis. Plant Cell. 2010;22:1702-15 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results provide insights into the pathways regulated by the ovule identity factors and the role of the downstream target gene VDD in female gametophyte development. ..
  8. Favaro R, Pinyopich A, Battaglia R, Kooiker M, Borghi L, Ditta G, et al. MADS-box protein complexes control carpel and ovule development in Arabidopsis. Plant Cell. 2003;15:2603-11 pubmed
    ..Together, these results indicate that the SEP proteins, which are known to form multimeric complexes in the control of flower organ identity, also form complexes to control normal ovule development. ..
  9. Colombo M, Brambilla V, Marcheselli R, Caporali E, Kater M, Colombo L. A new role for the SHATTERPROOF genes during Arabidopsis gynoecium development. Dev Biol. 2010;337:294-302 pubmed publisher
    ..In quadruple mutant flowers, the inner whorl is composed of unfused carpels which lack almost completely apical and medial tissues, a phenotype similar to the previously reported fil ant and lug ant double mutants. ..
