Plants need to adjust their growth and development in response to changes in environmental factors such as light intensity, light quality, temperature and water availability. Here I describe the identification of the BLADE-ON-PETIOLE (BOP) genes and their role in the regulation of the growth of lateral organs and stem vascular tissues. I show that the BOP genes affect leaf lamina formation through the repression of KNOX genes and JAGGED, and suppresses the formation of bracts through an interaction with the flower meristems-identity gene LEAFY. I also show that the BOP genes provide a direct link between light signal transduction and the regulation of plant development.
