A TCP domain transcription factor controls flower type specification along the radial axis of the Gerbera (Asteraceae) inflorescence
TLDR
Both expression patterns and transgenic phenotypes suggest that GhCYC2 is involved in differentiation among Gerbera flower types, providing the first molecular evidence that CYC-like TCP factors take part in defining the complex inflorescence structure of the Asteraceae, a major determinant of the family's evolutionary success. Expand
Organ identity genes and modified patterns of flower development in Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae)
TLDR
It is concluded that the pappus bristles are sepals highly modified for seed dispersal, and that organ abortion in the female marginal flowers is dependent upon organ identity and not organ position when position is homeotically altered. Expand
GEG Participates in the Regulation of Cell and Organ Shape during Corolla and Carpel Development in Gerbera hybrida
TLDR
These studies suggest that GEG, the expression of which can also be induced by application of GA3, plays a role in phytohormone-mediated cell expansion. Expand
Evolution and diversification of the CYC/TB1 gene family in Asteraceae--a comparative study in Gerbera (Mutisieae) and sunflower (Heliantheae).
TLDR
Comparison analysis of the CYCLOIDEA/TEOSINTE BRANCHED1 (CYC/TB1) gene family in Gerbera hybrida and Helianthus annuus, two species that represent distant tribes within Asteraceae, suggests that the expansion and the apparent conservation of especially the CYC2 clade CYC/ TB1-like genes are associated with the evolution of the increased complexity of the Asteraceae inflorescence architecture.

New pathway to polyketides in plants
TLDR
A key enzyme in the ornamental plant Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae) that participates in the biosynthesis of compounds that contribute to insect and pathogen resistance is identified. Expand
Genome sequencing and population genomic analyses provide insights into the adaptive landscape of silver birch
TLDR
Variation around the tightly-linked light response genes PHYC and FRS10 correlated with latitude and longitude and temperature, and with precipitation for PHYC, and similar associations characterized the growth-promoting cytokinin response regulator ARR1, and the wood development genes KAK and MED5A. Expand
Effect of pmt gene overexpression on tropane alkaloid production in transformed root cultures of Datura metel and Hyoscyamus muticus.
TLDR
The results indicate that the same biosynthetic pathway in two related plant species can be differently regulated, and overexpression of a given gene does not necessarily lead to a similar accumulation pattern of secondary metabolites. Expand
Analysis of the floral transcriptome uncovers new regulators of organ determination and gene families related to flower organ differentiation in Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae).
TLDR
The usability of the gerbera microarray is demonstrated as a reliable new tool for identifying novel genes related to specific biological questions and for large-scale gene expression analysis. Expand
Chalcone synthase-like genes active during corolla development are differentially expressed and encode enzymes with different catalytic properties in Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae)
TLDR
Analysis of the structure, expression patterns and catalytic properties of the corresponding enzymes of three genes that are active during corolla development in Gerbera hybrida demonstrate that chs-like genes are representatives of three distinct genetic programmes that is active during organ differentiation in gerbera. Expand
Cloning, nucleotide sequence and characterization of genes encoding naphthalene dioxygenase of Pseudomonas putida strain NCIB9816.
TLDR
A comparison of the ND-coding genes with the ones coding for benzene dioxygenase revealed significant homology which was more pronounced at the nucleotide level than at the amino acid level. Expand
