Genes controlling shoot meristem development sHooT MERTSTEMLESS (STM) lacks SAM, required to prevent stem cells from differentiating wuscHEL (wus) loss of stem cells in the SAM; forms new flanking meristems to compensate, that are soon used up as well, hence the bushy phenotype. GLAVATA (CLV) 1,2,3 Have enlarged SAM meristems due to an enlarged central zone, i.e. more stem cells
