- A member of the maize isopentenyl transferase gene family, Zea mays isopentenyl transferase 2 (ZmIPT2), encodes a cytokinin biosynthetic enzyme expressed during kernel development. Cytokinin biosynthesis in maizeNorbert Brugière
Discovery Group Agronomic Traits, Pioneer Hi Bred International, Inc, A DuPont Business, Johnston, IA 50131 0522, USA
Plant Mol Biol 67:215-29. 2008..The expression pattern of ZmIPT2 in the BETL, endosperm and embryo during kernel development will be discussed with an emphasis on the suggested role of CKs in determining sink-strength and grain production in crop plants...
- Cytokinin oxidase gene expression in maize is localized to the vasculature, and is induced by cytokinins, abscisic acid, and abiotic stressNorbert Brugière
Pioneer Hi Bred International, Agronomic Traits, 7250 N W 62nd Avenue, P O Box 552, Johnston, Iowa, 50131 0552, USA
Plant Physiol 132:1228-40. 2003..In addition, we suggest that under environmental stress conditions, cytokinin oxidase gene induction by abscisic acid results in aberrant degradation of cytokinins therefore impairing normal development...
