Unformatted text preview: roots or leaves. This mutation is caused by the inability to transport the hormone, auxin in a polar direction. The differentiation of juvenile and mature leaf patterns is also associated with gene controls. The juvenile line will be retained in areas of the plant even after the apical meristem will have undergone a "phase change" since each node has "unique" meristem. As discussed in our section on flower structure, the same pattern genes differentially activate flower part differentiation. It is believed that selective transcription factors control the gene combinations for flower pattern....
