Abstract: The cloning of the ATML1 gene, encoding an HD-ZIP class IV transcription factor, was first reported in 1996. Because ATML1 mRNA was preferentially detected in the shoot epidermis, cis-regulatory sequences of ATML1 have been used to drive gene expression in the outermost cells of the shoot apical meristem and leaves, even before the function of ATML1 was understood. Later studies revealed that ATML1 is required for developmental processes related to shoot epidermal specification and differentiation. Consistent with its central role in epidermal development, ATML1 activity has been revealed to be restricted to the outermost cells via several regulatory mechanisms. In this review, we look back on the history of ATML1 research and provide a perspective for future studies.
