Microarray Analysis of the Abscission-Related Transcriptome in the Tomato Flower Abscission Zone in Response to Auxin Depletion1[C][W][OA]
The abscission process is initiated by changes in the auxin gradient across the abscission zone (AZ) and is triggered by ethylene. Although changes in gene expression have been correlated with theExpand

Alcohols and Carnation Senescence
Continuous treatment with 8% ethanol doubled the vase life of 'White Sim' carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L.) flowers. Other alcohols, other concentrations of ethanol, or pulse treatments with up toExpand

Identification of genes associated with perianth senescence in Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus L. ‘Dutch Master’)
We used a PCR-based subtractive procedure to isolate genes that increased in abundance in the perianth of incipiently senescent daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus L. ‘Dutch Master’) flowers. UsingExpand

Ethylene in Plant Growth, Development, and Senescence
Amongst hormones in both plant and animal kingdoms, ethylene, a gaseous hydrocarbon, is unique. Despite its chemical simplicity, it is a potent growth regulator, affecting the growth,Expand

Analysis of the expression of two thiolprotease genes from daylily (Hemerocallis spp.) during flower senescence
A cDNA clone encoding a daylily (Hemerocallis spp.) thiolprotease (SEN11), whose expression is strongly up-regulated in flower tepal senescence, has been isolated. The amino acid sequence, deducedExpand

Flower senescence in daylily (Hemerocallis)
Daylily (Hemerocallis hybrid cv. Cradle Song) flower development and senescence was categorised into seven stages, each separated by one day. As the bud developed (Stages I to III) its fresh and dryExpand

Role of abscisic acid in perianth senescence of daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus"Dutch Master").
Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus L. 'Dutch Master') flowers detached at the base of their ovaries and held with their cut ends in 10-100 microM abscisic acid (ABA) senesced prematurely. SymptomsExpand

Physiological changes accompanying senescence in the ephemeral daylily flower.
The daylily flower, Hemerocallis hybrid cv Cradle Song, develops from the opening bud to full senescence in 36 hours. Unlike other ephemeral flowers studied to date, it does not respond to ethylene,Expand
