Gene : BAM2 A. thaliana

DB identifier  ? AT3G49670 Secondary Identifier  ? locus:2097310
Name  ? BARELY ANY MERISTEM 2 Brief Description  Leucine-rich receptor-like protein kinase family protein
TAIR Computational Description  Leucine-rich receptor-like protein kinase family protein;(source:Araport11)
TAIR Curator Summary  Encodes a CLAVATA1-related receptor kinase-like protein required for both shoot and flower meristem function. Very similar to BAM1,with more than 85% a.a. identity. It has a broad expression pattern and is involved in vascular strand development in the leaf, control of leaf shape, size and symmetry, male gametophyte development and ovule specification and function. Anthers of double mutants (bam1bam2) appeared abnormal at a very early stage and lack the endothecium, middle, and tapetum layers. Further analyses revealed that cells interior to the epidermis (in anther tissue) acquire some characteristics of pollen mother cells (PMCs), suggesting defects in cell fate specification. The pollen mother-like cells degenerate before the completion of meiosis, suggesting that these cells are defective. In addition, the BAM2 expression pattern supports both an early role in promoting somatic cell fates and a subsequent function in the PMCs. The mRNA is cell-to-cell mobile.
