A novel class of MADS box genes is involved in ovule development in petunia.
We isolated and characterized two ovule-specific MADS box cDNAs from petunia, designated floral binding protein (fbp) genes 7 and 11. The putative protein products of these genes have approximatelyExpand

ODORANT1 Regulates Fragrance Biosynthesis in Petunia Flowersw⃞
Floral scent is important to plant reproduction because it attracts pollinators to the sexual organs. Therefore, volatile emission is usually tuned to the foraging activity of the pollinators. InExpand

Identification of the SAAT Gene Involved in Strawberry Flavor Biogenesis by Use of DNA Microarrays
Fruit flavor is a result of a complex mixture of numerous compounds. The formation of these compounds is closely correlated with the metabolic changes occurring during fruit maturation. Here, weExpand

The petunia MADS box gene FBP11 determines ovule identity.
In contrast to the wealth of information relating to genes regulating floral meristem and floral organ identity, only limited data are available concerning genes that are involved in determining andExpand

Modification of flavonoid biosynthesis in crop plants.
Flavonoids comprise the most common group of polyphenolic plant secondary metabolites. In plants, flavonoids play an important role in biological processes. Beside their function as pigments inExpand

Regulation of floral scent production in petunia revealed by targeted metabolomics.
Petunia hybrida line W115 (Mitchell) has large white flowers that produce a pleasant fragrance. By applying solid phase micro extraction (SPME) techniques coupled to GC-MS analysis, volatile emissionExpand

Differential expression of two MADS box genes in wild-type and mutant petunia flowers.
We isolated and characterized two flower-specific genes from petunia. The protein products of these genes, designated floral binding protein 1 (FBP1) and 2 (FBP2), are putative transcription factorsExpand

Co-suppression of the petunia homeotic gene fbp2 affects the identity of the generative meristem.
The function of the petunia MADS box gene fbp2 in the control of floral development has been investigated. Inhibition of fbp2 expression in transgenic plants by a co-suppression approach resulted inExpand

Petal and stamen formation in petunia is regulated by the homeotic gene fbp1.
For Arabidopsis and Antirrhinum, the so-called ABC model has been developed, which postulates that the determination of floral organ primordia is controlled by the action of three classes of homeoticExpand
