Auxin response factor (ARF) and Auxin/INDOLE-3-ACETIC ACID (Aux/IAA) proteins are the foremost regulators of auxin action and play an essential role in the coordination of many aspects of plant growth and development. Though many members of both ARF and Aux/IAA gene families have been identified and characterized in tomato, they are less studied in other(More)
Pyridoxal phosphate (PLP)-dependent enzymes are one of the most important enzymes involved in plant N metabolism. Here, we explored the evolution of group II PLP-dependent decarboxylases (PLP_deC), including aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, glutamate decarboxylase, and histidine decarboxylase in the plant lineage. Gene identification analysis revealed a(More)
Isolation and functional characterization of tissue- and stage-specific gene promoters is beneficial for genetic improvement of economically important crops. Here, we have characterized a putative promoter of a ripening-induced gene RIP1 (Ripening induced protein 1) in tomato. Quantification of the transcript level of RIP1 showed that its expression is(More)
