The Wheat VRN2 Gene Is a Flowering Repressor Down-Regulated by Vernalization
Plants with a winter growth habit flower earlier when exposed for several weeks to cold temperatures, a process called vernalization. We report here the positional cloning of the wheat vernalizationExpand

Large deletions within the first intron in VRN-1 are associated with spring growth habit in barley and wheat
The broad adaptability of wheat and barley is in part attributable to their flexible growth habit, in that spring forms have recurrently evolved from the ancestral winter growth habit. In diploidExpand

Allelic variation at the VRN-1 promoter region in polyploid wheat
Vernalization, the requirement of a long exposure to low temperatures to induce flowering, is an essential adaptation of plants to cold winters. We have shown recently that the vernalization geneExpand

Effect of Photoperiod on the Regulation of Wheat Vernalization Genes VRN1 and VRN2
Wheat is usually classified as a long day (LD) plant because most varieties flower earlier when exposed to longer days. In addition to LD, winter wheats require a long exposure to low temperaturesExpand

Molecular and Structural Characterization of Barley Vernalization Genes
Vernalization, the requirement of a period of low temperature to induce transition from the vegetative to reproductive state, is an evolutionarily and economically important trait in the Triticeae.Expand

Molecular characterization of the allelic variation at the VRN-H2 vernalization locus in barley
VRN-2 is a dominant repressor of flowering that plays a central role in the vernalization pathway of wheat. This gene is a zinc-finger/CCT domain transcription factor (ZCCT-1) down-regulated byExpand

Comparative sequence analysis of colinear barley and rice bacterial artificial chromosomes.
Colinearity of a large region from barley (Hordeum vulgare) chromosome 5H and rice (Oryza sativa) chromosome 3 has been demonstrated by mapping of several common restriction fragment-lengthExpand

Genetic and Molecular Characterization of the VRN2 Loci in Tetraploid Wheat1[W][OA]
Winter wheat (Triticum spp.) varieties require long exposures to low temperatures to flower, a process called vernalization. The VRN2 locus includes two completely linked zinc finger-CCT domain genesExpand

Regulation of VRN-1 Vernalization Genes in Normal and Transgenic Polyploid Wheat1
Vernalization, the requirement of a long exposure to low temperatures to accelerate flowering, is an essential adaptation of plants to cold winters. The vernalization gene VRN-1 plays an importantExpand
