The Sequential Action of miR156 and miR172 Regulates Developmental Timing in Arabidopsis
The transition from the juvenile to the adult phase of shoot development in plants is accompanied by changes in vegetative morphology and an increase in reproductive potential. Here, we describe theExpand

miR156-Regulated SPL Transcription Factors Define an Endogenous Flowering Pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana
The FT gene integrates several external and endogenous cues controlling flowering, including information on day length. A complex of the mobile FT protein and the bZIP transcription factor FD in turnExpand

Control of Root Cap Formation by MicroRNA-Targeted Auxin Response Factors in Arabidopsisw⃞
The plant root cap mediates the direction of root tip growth and protects internal cells. Root cap cells are continuously produced from distal stem cells, and the phytohormone auxin provides positionExpand

Silencing a cotton bollworm P450 monooxygenase gene by plant-mediated RNAi impairs larval tolerance of gossypol
We identify a cytochrome P450 gene (CYP6AE14) from cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera), which permits this herbivore to tolerate otherwise inhibitory concentrations of the cotton metabolite,Expand

Negative Regulation of Anthocyanin Biosynthesis in Arabidopsis by a miR156-Targeted SPL Transcription Factor[W][OA]
This work reveals that anthocyanin biosynthesis is coupled to floral transition by miR156-targeted SQUAMOSA PROMOTER BINDING PROTEIN-LIKE (SPL) genes. SPL negatively regulates anthocyaninExpand

Dual Effects of miR156-Targeted SPL Genes and CYP78A5/KLUH on Plastochron Length and Organ Size in Arabidopsis thaliana[W][OA]
Leaves of flowering plants are produced from the shoot apical meristem at regular intervals, with the time that elapses between the formation of two successive leaf primordia defining theExpand

Control of Plant Trichome Development by a Cotton Fiber MYB Genew⃞
Cotton (Gossypium spp) plants produce seed trichomes (cotton fibers) that are an important commodity worldwide; however, genes controlling cotton fiber development have not been characterized. InExpand

MiRNA Control of Vegetative Phase Change in Trees
After germination, plants enter juvenile vegetative phase and then transition to an adult vegetative phase before producing reproductive structures. The character and timing of the juvenile-to-adultExpand

Gibberellin Regulates the Arabidopsis Floral Transition through miR156-Targeted SQUAMOSA PROMOTER BINDING–LIKE Transcription Factors[W]
This article examines the crosstalk between gibberellin responses, which result in degradation of DELLAs, and the microRNA-regulated SQUAMOSA PROMOTER BINDING LIKE (SPL) transcription factors, whichExpand

Characterization of GaWRKY1, a Cotton Transcription Factor That Regulates the Sesquiterpene Synthase Gene (+)-δ-Cadinene Synthase-A1
The cotton (+)-δ-cadinene synthase (CAD1), a sesquiterpene cyclase, catalyzes a branch-point step leading to biosynthesis of sesquiterpene phytoalexins, including gossypol. CAD1-A is a member of CAD1Expand
