Formatted abstract
A new report details the interaction between two isoforms of an important BRANCHED1 (BRC1) transcription factor gene in potato. The regular long form inhibits lateral branching, like BRC1 in other species, but a modified protein that originates from alternative BRC1 splicing inhibits the long form and promotes lateral branching.
