Ethylene: a gaseous signal molecule in plants.
Biotechnological modifications of ethylene synthesis and of sensitivity to ethylene are promising methods to prevent spoilage of agricultural products such as fruits, whose ripening is induced by ethylene. Expand
The AtGRF family of putative transcription factors is involved in leaf and cotyledon growth in Arabidopsis.
Results indicate that AtGRF proteins play a role in the regulation of cell expansion in leaf and cotyledon tissues in Arabidopsis thaliana. Expand
Insensitivity to Ethylene Conferred by a Dominant Mutation in Arabidopsis thaliana
Results of ethylene binding experiments in vivo indicate that this receptor may be affected by the etr mutation, and this receptor appears to share some common element in their transduction pathways—for example, a single receptor for ethylene. Expand

It is demonstrated here that the C-terminal region of GRF proteins has transactivation activity, and it is proposed that GRF1 and GIF1 act as transcription activator and coactivator, respectively, and that they are part of a complex involved in regulating the growth and shape of leaves and petals.

  • 1 September 1989
The properties of enzymes involved in ethylene biosynthesis are reviewed and progress toward the purification of these enzymes is described, including the enzyme that converts ACC to ethylene, which does not survive homogenization. Expand
Genes Galore: A Summary of Methods for Accessing Results from Large-Scale Partial Sequencing of Anonymous Arabidopsis cDNA Clones
The more than 13,400 plant ESTs that are currently available provide a new resource that will facilitate progress in many areas of plant biology and are illustrated by a description of the results obtained from analysis of 1500 Arabidopsis ESTs from a cDNA library prepared from equal portions of poly(A+) mRNA from etiolated seedlings, roots, leaves, and flowering inflorescence.

On the role of abscisic Acid and gibberellin in the regulation of growth in rice.
The results indicate that the growth rate of deepwater rice internodes is determined by the ratio of an endogenous growth promoter (GA) and a growth inhibitor (ABA), which may be related to the semiaquatic growth habit of this plant. Expand
Expression of expansin genes is correlated with growth in deepwater rice.
The results indicate that the expression of expansin genes in deepwater rice is differentially regulated by developmental, hormonal, and environmental signals and is correlated with cell elongation. Expand
A novel gibberellin-induced gene from rice and its potential regulatory role in stem growth.
The results indicate that Os-GRF1 belongs to a novel class of plant proteins and may play a regulatory role in GA-induced stem elongation and was expressed in Arabidopsis. Expand
Whole genome analysis of the OsGRF gene family encoding plant-specific putative transcription activators in rice (Oryza sativa L.).
Results indicate that OsGRF1 acts as a transcriptional activator and postulate that it may be involved in regulating vegetative growth in rice. Expand
