  • Expression analyses of ALCATRAZ, HECATE, REPLUMLESS and SPATULA homologues in four species of Solanaceae with dry dehiscent and fleshy fruits. 

    Carpel and fruit development genes in Solanaceae

    The genetic basis underlying fruit diversity is not yet fully understood, as mainly unrelated model species have been studied. Scientists have identified in Arabidopsis major transcription factors controlling valve identity (i.e. FRUITFULL), replum development (i.e. REPLUMLESS) and the differentiation of the dehiscence zones (i.e. SHATTERPROOF, INDEHISCENT and ALCATRAZ). This gene regulatory network in other flowering […] More
