Normal tobacco leaf (left) and germinated formation (right).

Homeobox genes know that they intervene in the separation of embryo cells. In plants are also found in meristema and govern the separation of cells into all-one.

But when the Homeobox gene plays its role in leaf cells, the result is curious. Instead of giving the defined normal leaf, a germinated formation is obtained. The image shows the tobacco grass.
