Summary of potential candidate genes involved in AI cell specification. A schematic of an ovule from aposporous Hieracium depicting postulated conditions required for the initiation of AI cell development. The relaxation of sporophyte identity (blue shading), in conjunction with the perception of signals to initiate gametophyte development (orange shading), leads to specification of AI cells with a mitotic gametophyte identity. Potential genes and pathways identified in this analysis that may play a role in leading to the postulated conditions required for AI cell specification are listed on the right (Additional file 5)
