Encodes a MADS-box transcription factor involved in flower and ovule development.
Multiple mutant: sep1
multiple mutant produces flowers in which all organs develop as sepals. [Pelaz et al., 2000] Function:
Probable transcription factor. Functions with SEPALLATA2/AGL4 and SEPALLATA3/AGL9 to ensure proper development of petals, stamens and carpels, and to prevent the indeterminate growth of the flower meristem. Forms a heterodimer via the K-box domain with AGAMOUS, that could be involved in genes regulation during floral meristem development. [Data from UniProt]
