Brock M, Maloof J, Weinig C. Genes underlying quantitative variation in ecologically important traits: PIF4 (phytochrome interacting factor 4) is associated with variation in internode length, flowering time, and fruit set in Arabidopsis thaliana. Mol Ecol. 2010;19:1187-99 pubmed publisher
..In sum, the results suggest that PIF4 causally affects early internode lengths on the primary inflorescence, potentially via effects on reproductive timing and that these traits in turn affect fitness. ..
Brock M, Kover P, Weinig C. Natural variation in GA1 associates with floral morphology in Arabidopsis thaliana. New Phytol. 2012;195:58-70 pubmed publisher
..This pattern suggests that GA1 could contribute to the greater strength of petal-stamen correlations relative to other floral-length correlations observed in some Brassicaceous species. ..
