Figure 1. Phylogeny of the genus Lepidium, the distribution of the DOG1 gene, and infructescence morphology of Lepidium sativum and Lepidium papillosum.
A, Distribution of DOG1 homologs in representatives of all major lineages, subclades, and geographic ranges of Lepidium. Shown is the Bayesian 50% majority rule consensus tree based on ITS-sequence analysis, with mean posterior probability values (clade credibilities) below branches; phylogeny redrawn from Mummenhoff et al. (2009). For DOG1 gene sequences see Supplemental Table S1.
B-E, Comparison of infructescences and seeds of L. sativum and L. papillosum. Within the 'well-ordered' infructescences of L. papillosum the seed maturation gradient is accompanied by primary dormancy induction.
