The molecular mechanisms of vernalization induced flowering in temperate cereals

Greenup, Aaron Geoffrey

Description

Plants coordinate development with environmental cues to ensure flowering occurs under optimal seasonal conditions. Many plants from temperate regions only flower after exposure to prolonged cold: vernalization. While the molecular mechanisms of the vernalization response have been studied extensively in the model plant Arabidopsis, this seasonal flowering response has probably evolved independently in other plants. For instance, no homologues of FLOWER LOCUS C (FLC), the gene central to the...[Show more]
