Abstract:
In contrast to mammals, genomic imprinting primarily occurs in the endosperm in flowering plants. Nevertheless, the imprinting drivers and functions of imprinted genes remain poorly understood. Batista et al. identified the type I MADS-box transcription factor (TF) PHERES1 (PHE1) as a key regulator of some imprinted and nonimprinted genes required for endosperm development.
