Abstract

Postembryonic development of plants depends on the activity of apical meristems established during embryogenesis. The shoot apical meristem (SAM) and the root apical meristem (RAM) have similar but distinct cellular organization. Arabidopsis FASCIATA1 (FAS1) and FAS2 genes maintain the cellular and functional organization of both SAM and RAM, and FAS gene products are subunits of the Arabidopsis counterpart of chromatin assembly factor-1 (CAF-1). fas mutants are defective in maintenance of the expression states of WUSCHEL (WUS) in SAM and SCARECROW (SCR) in RAM. We suggest that CAF-1 plays a critical role in the organization of SAM and RAM during postembryonic development by facilitating stable maintenance of gene expression states.
