- Perturbation of cytokinin and ethylene-signalling pathways explain the strong rooting phenotype exhibited by Arabidopsis expressing the Schizosaccharomyces pombe mitotic inducer, cdc25Natasha D Spadafora
School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, Cardiff CF10 3AT, UK
BMC Plant Biol 12:45. 2012..Here we show, for the first time, that alterations to cytokinin and ethylene signaling explain the rooting phenotype elicited by Spcdc25 expression in Arabidopsis...
- Distinct nuclear organization, DNA methylation pattern and cytokinin distribution mark juvenile, juvenile-like and adult vegetative apical meristems in peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch)Maria Beatrice Bitonti
Dipartimento di Ecologia, Universita della Calabria, I 87030 Arcavacata di Rende, CS, Italy
J Exp Bot 53:1047-54. 2002..The extent to which the acquisition of a strongly zonated pattern of these parameters as markers of floral competence in adult SAMs is discussed...
- Differential spatial expression of A- and B-type CDKs, and distribution of auxins and cytokinins in the open transverse root apical meristem of Cucurbita maximaAdriana Chiappetta
Dipartimento di Ecologia, Universita della Calabria, Arcavacata di Rende, Cosenza, Italy
Ann Bot 107:1223-34. 2011..Here spatial expression/localization of an A-type and B-type CDK, auxin and cytokinins are reported in relation to the hitherto unexplored anatomy of RAMs of Cucurbita maxima...
- Zeatin accumulation and misexpression of a class I knox gene are intimately linked in the epiphyllous response of the interspecific hybrid EMB-2 (Helianthus annuus x H. tuberosus)Adriana Chiappetta
Dipartimento di Ecologia, , Arcavacata di Rende, 87030 Cosenza, Italy
Planta 223:917-31. 2006..These results clearly indicate that localized cytokinin accumulation and ectopic expression of HtKNOT1 are closely linked in the epiphylly of EMB-2 plants...
- Cytological investigations of the Arabidopsis thaliana elo1 mutant give new insights into leaf lateral growth and Elongator functionAndrea Falcone
Universita della Calabria, Dipartimento di Ecologia, Via ponte P Bucci, Cubo 6B, I 87036, Arcavacata di Rende, CS, Italia
Ann Bot 100:261-70. 2007..Relative expression levels of three sucrose metabolism/transport-related genes were also investigated. The aim was to determine the physiological basis of leaf morphology in this mutant, by investigating the modulatory role of sucrose...

Institute of Biology and Agricultural Biotechnology Section of Rome, National Research Council of Italy CNR, Via Salaria Km 29, 300, I 00016, Monterotondo Scalo, Rome, Italy
J Exp Bot 55:2063-73. 2004..These data suggest that PpCHL P expression was regulated by photosynthetic activity and was possibly involved in the defence response...
- Isolation and characterization of a maintenance DNA-methyltransferase gene from peach (Prunus persica [L.] Batsch): transcript localization in vegetative and reproductive meristems of triple budsDonato Giannino
