A TCP domain transcription factor controls flower type specification along the radial axis of the Gerbera (Asteraceae) inflorescence
Several key processes in plant development are regulated by TCP transcription factors. CYCLOIDEA-like (CYC-like) TCP domain proteins have been shown to control flower symmetry in distantly relatedExpand

Organ identity genes and modified patterns of flower development in Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae)
We have used Gerbera hybrida (the cultivated ornamental, gerera) to investigate the molecular basis of flower development in Asteraceae, a family of flowering plants that have heteromorphic flowersExpand

GEG Participates in the Regulation of Cell and Organ Shape during Corolla and Carpel Development in Gerbera hybrida
The molecular mechanisms that control organ shape during flower development are largely unknown. By using differential hybridization techniques, a cDNA designated GEG (for Gerbera hybrida homolog ofExpand

New pathway to polyketides in plants
The repertoire of secondary metabolism (involving the production of compounds not essential for growth) in the plant kingdom is enormous, but the genetic and functional basis for this diversity isExpand

Effect of pmt gene overexpression on tropane alkaloid production in transformed root cultures of Datura metel and Hyoscyamus muticus.
In order to increase the production of the pharmaceuticals hyoscyamine and scopolamine in hairy root cultures, a binary vector system was developed to introduce the T-DNA of the Ri plasmid togetherExpand

A Vacuolar Sorting Domain May Also Influence the Way in Which Proteins Leave the Endoplasmic Reticulum
Protein sorting to plant vacuoles is known to be dependent on a considerable variety of protein motifs recognized by a family of sorting receptors. This can involve either traffic from theExpand

Functional diversification of duplicated CYC2 clade genes in regulation of inflorescence development in Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae).
The complex inflorescences (capitula) of Asteraceae consist of different types of flowers. In Gerbera hybrida (gerbera), the peripheral ray flowers are bilaterally symmetrical and lack functionalExpand

Enhancement of scopolamine production in Hyoscyamus muticus L. hairy root cultures by genetic engineering
Abstract. In order to test the possibility of enhancing the production of pharmaceutically valuable scopolamine in transgenic cultures, the 35S-h6h transgene that codes for the enzymeExpand

Chalcone synthase-like genes active during corolla development are differentially expressed and encode enzymes with different catalytic properties in Gerbera hybrida (Asteraceae)
Recent studies on chalcone synthase (CHS) and the related stilbene synthase (STS) suggest that the structure of chs-like genes in plants has evolved into different forms, whose members have bothExpand

Lignification related enzymes in Picea abies suspension cultures.
Activity of a number of enzymes related to lignin formation was measured in a Picea abies (L) Karsten suspension culture that is able to produce native-like lignin into the nutrient medium. This cellExpand
