About the cover: WOX1 is a WUS family transcription factor. Using a gain-offunction mutant wox1-D, Zhang et al (pp 493–506) showed that WOX1 plays an important role in meristem development of Arabidopsis, possibly through regulating the activity of SAdenosylmethionine decarboxylase (SAMDC). Using transgenic plants carrying a GUS reporter gene, these authors showed that WOX1 is actively expressed in cells that are active in divisions.
