FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) regulates development pathways throughout the life cycle of Arabidopsis

Deng, Weiwei; Ying, Hua; Helliwell, Christopher Andrew; Taylor, Jennifer; Peacock, James; Dennis, Elizabeth


FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) has a key role in the timing of the initiation of flowering in Arabidopsis. FLC binds and represses two genes that promote flowering, FT and SOC1. We show that FLC binds to many other genes, indicating that it has regulatory roles other than the repression of flowering.We identified 505 FLC binding sites, mostly located in the promoter regions of genes and containing at least one CArG box, the motif known to be associated with MADS-box proteins such as FLC. We examined...[Show more]
