Suppose that a homeotic gene from Drosophila is introduced into an Arabidopsis embryo that has a pre-existing mutation in one of its homeotic flower genes. What effect would you expect and why?

▸ rescue (or negating) of the phenotype of the mutant because the fly Hox gene supplies the missing protein

▸ correction of the sequence in the mutant by recombination with the Drosophila gene sequence

▸ expression of the Drosophila homeotic gene correcting the mRNA of the mutant plant

▸ a mixture of roughly equal numbers of Drosophila and plant gene product, producing an intermediate phenotype

▸ no effect, because Hox genes are different from MADS box genes
