  1. ncbi request reprint The heterochronic maize mutant Corngrass1 results from overexpression of a tandem microRNA
    George Chuck
    Plant Gene Expression Center, 800 Buchanan St, Albany, California 94710, USA
    Nat Genet 39:544-9. 2007
    ..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...
  2. ncbi request reprint The control of spikelet meristem identity by the branched silkless1 gene in maize
    George Chuck
    Plant Gene Expression Center, U S Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service, 800 Buchanan Street, Albany, CA 94710, USA
    Science 298:1238-41. 2002
    ..Its expression pattern suggests that signaling pathways regulate meristem identity from lateral domains of the spikelet meristem...
  3. ncbi request reprint The maize tasselseed4 microRNA controls sex determination and meristem cell fate by targeting Tasselseed6/indeterminate spikelet1
    George Chuck
    Plant Gene Expression Center, United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service and the University of California, Albany, California 94710, USA
    Nat Genet 39:1517-21. 2007
    ..Finally, IDS1 protein is expressed more broadly in ts4 mutants compared to wild type. Our results demonstrate that sexual identity in maize is acquired by limiting floral growth through negative regulation of the floral homeotic pathway...
  4. ncbi request reprint Regulation of developmental transitions
    George Chuck
    Plant Gene Expression Center, USDA ARS and UC Berkeley, 800 Buchanan Street, Albany, California 94710, USA
    Curr Opin Plant Biol 8:67-70. 2005
    ..Examples of these transitions include changes from juvenile to adult leaf formation, vegetative to inflorescence meristem development, and inflorescence to floral meristem initiation...
  5. doi request reprint Floral meristem initiation and meristem cell fate are regulated by the maize AP2 genes ids1 and sid1
    George Chuck
    Plant Gene Expression Center, United States Department of Agriculture Agriculture Research Service and the University of California, Albany, CA 94710, USA
    Development 135:3013-9. 2008

    Plant Cell 18:574-85. 2006
    ..The ra2 expression pattern is conserved in rice (Oryza sativa), barley (Hordeum vulgare), sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), and maize, suggesting that ra2 is critical for shaping the initial steps of grass inflorescence architecture...

    Plant Gene Expression Center, United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service, Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, University of California at Berkeley, Albany, California, USA
    Plant Signal Behav 5:979-81. 2010
    ..The tasselsheath4 (tsh4) gene accomplishes this through regulation of the ramosa2 (ra2) meristem determinacy gene, whereas tasselsheath1 (tsh1) appears to function differently...
