The sequential pattern of coffee flowering is a major constraint that directly affects productivity, increases harvest costs, and generates a final product of lower quality for mixing dry fruits with ripe and unripe ones. The objective of this work was to identify and analyze one of the main genes involved in flowering regulation, FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) in(More)
Coffee quality is strongly influenced by a great number of factors, among which the fruit ripening stage at harvest time has a major influence on this feature. Studies comprising ethylene production and the regulation of ethylene biosynthesis genes during the ripening process indicate that ethylene plays an important role on coffee fruit ripening. Coffee(More)
Natural flowering can cause serious scheduling problems in the pineapple (Ananas comosus) industry and increase harvest costs. Pineapple flowering is thought to be triggered by increased ethylene levels and artificial forcing of pineapple flowering is a common practice to promote flowering synchronisation. However, little is known about the early hormonal(More)
The plant hormone ethylene is involved in the regulation of a multitude of plant processes, ranging from seed germination to organ senescence. Ethylene induces fruit ripening in climacteric fruits, such as coffee, being directly involved in fruit ripening time and synchronization. Coffee early cultivars usually show a more uniform ripening process although(More)
The plant hormone ethylene is involved in several developmental and physiological processes in plants, including senescence, fruit ripening and organ abscission, as well as in biotic and abiotic stress responses. Initiation of these processes involves complex regulation of both ethylene biosynthesis and the ability of cells to perceive the hormone and(More)
