Opposing effects of reduced DNA methylation on flowering time in Arabidopsis thaliana

Genger, Ruth; Peacock, W James; Dennis, Elizabeth; Finnegan, E. Jean

Description

Demethylation of DNA promotes flowering in plants from the vernalization-responsive ecotype C24 of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh., but delays flowering in the ecotype Landsberg erecta which is not responsive to vernalization. To investigate these contrasting effects of low methylation we have monitored flowering times and expression of two repressors of flowering, FLC and FWA, in low-methylation plants from three late-flowering mutants in the ecotype Landsberg erecta. Demethylation of DNA...[Show more]
