Plant reproduction also requires RNAi machinery, in which Argonaute1 acts in effecting the full expression of LEAFY (LFY), APETALA1 (AP1), and AGAMOUS (AG), encoding transcription factors to determine meristem identity, flowering transition, and/or flower organ identity.
In Arabidopsis, the CCCH-type protein HUA1 is involved in the processing of AGAMOUS pre-mRNA as an RNA-binding protein during flower development.
