Abstract

A gibberellin- and abscisic acid-regulated MYB, GAMYB, was first identified as an activator of GA-regulated genes in cereal aleurone. Here we review recent advances made in delineating the signaling events related to GAMYB expression and function in aleurone. In addition, there is a growing body of evidence that GAMYB plays an important role in other aspects of plant growth and development, including anther development, stem elongation, floral initiation and seed development.
