MYB transcription factors in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
The elucidation ofMYB protein function and regulation that is possible in Arabidopsis will provide the foundation for predicting the contributions of MYB proteins to the biology of plants in general. Expand
LEAFY COTYLEDON2 encodes a B3 domain transcription factor that induces embryo development
TLDR
The cloned LEC2 gene is cloned on the basis of its chromosomal position and it is shown that the predicted polypeptide contains a B3 domain, a DNA-binding motif unique to plants that is characteristic of several transcription factors. Expand
The TT8 Gene Encodes a Basic Helix-Loop-Helix Domain Protein Required for Expression of DFR and BAN Genes in Arabidopsis Siliques
TLDR
The results suggest that the TT8, TTG1, and TT2 proteins may interact to control flavonoid metabolism in the Arabidopsis seed coat. Expand
Genetics and biochemistry of seed flavonoids.
TLDR
This review presents a current view of the genetic and biochemical control of flavonoid metabolism during seed development and focuses mainly on proanthocyanidin accumulation in Arabidopsis, with comparisons to other related metabolic and regulatory pathways. Expand
TT2, TT8, and TTG1 synergistically specify the expression of BANYULS and proanthocyanidin biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
TT2, TT8, and TTG1 can form a ternary complex directly regulating BAN expression in planta, as indicated by experiments using yeast two- and three-hybrid and transient expression experiments. Expand
An integrated overview of seed development in Arabidopsis thaliana ecotype WS
TLDR
This study revealed the occurrence of metabolic activities such as protein synthesis, in the final phase of embryo desiccation, and a striking correlation between peaks in hexose to sucrose ratio and transition phases during embryogenesis was observed. Expand
WRINKLED1 specifies the regulatory action of LEAFY COTYLEDON2 towards fatty acid metabolism during seed maturation in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Comprehensive functional analyses of three new mutants corresponding to null alleles of wri1 confirm that the induction of WRI1 is a prerequisite for fatty acid synthesis and is important for normal embryo development, and indicate new relationships in the regulatory model for the control of oil synthesis in maturing A. thaliana seeds. Expand
MYBL2 is a new regulator of flavonoid biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
The genetic and molecular analyses presented here demonstrated that Arabidopsis MYBL2, which encodes a R3-MYB-related protein, is involved in the regulation of flavonoid biosynthesis, and transient expression analyses in A. thaliana cells suggested thatMYBL2 interacts with MBW complexes in planta and directly modulates the expression of flav onoid target genes. Expand
Proanthocyanidin-Accumulating Cells in Arabidopsis Testa: Regulation of Differentiation and Role in Seed Development Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at
TLDR
Genetic ablation of PA-accumulating cells targeted by the BAN promoter fused to BARNASE led to the formation of normal plants that produced viable yellow seeds, which had no obvious defects in endosperm and embryo development. Expand
Transcriptional control of flavonoid biosynthesis by MYB-bHLH-WDR complexes.
TLDR
Recent advances in the characterization of the underlying regulatory mechanisms of flavonoid biosynthesis are reviewed, with a special focus on the MBW (MYB-bHLH-WDR) protein complexes. Expand
