Inoculation of mango trees with Burkholderia caribensis XV and Rhizobium sp. XXV led to mango growth promotion (dry biomass increased in root 89 %, stem 34 %, leaves 51 %, and foliar area 53 %), floral fate (floral buds 100 %), and increased number of flowers (100 %). Nitrogen content in leaves was similar in inoculated and noninoculated trees, around 1.4 %(More)
MADS domain proteins are transcription factors that coordinate several important developmental processes in plants. These proteins interact with other MADS domain proteins to form dimers, and it has been proposed that they are able to associate as tetrameric complexes that regulate transcription of target genes. Whether the formation of functional tetramers(More)
Long-term goals to impact or modify fruit quality and yield have been the target of researchers for many years. Different approaches such as traditional breeding, mutation breeding, and transgenic approaches have revealed a regulatory network where several hormones concur in a complex way to regulate fruit set and development, and these networks are shared(More)
miRNAs are a class of small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression. They are involved in the control of many developmental processes, including fruit development. The increasing amount of information on miRNAs, on their expression, abundance, and conservation between various species, provides a new opportunity to study the role of miRNAs in non-model(More)
Observation of a differential expression pattern, including strong expression in meristematic tissue of an Agave tequilana GlsA/ZRF ortholog suggested an important role for this gene during bulbil formation and developmental changes in this species. In order to better understand this role, the two GlsA/ZFR orthologs present in the genome of Arabidopsis(More)
