Abscission facilitates growth and reproduction and improves plant defenses against pathogens. This tightly regulated process is triggered by environmental cues and hormones such as ethylene and auxin. Because auxin is crucial for abscission, auxin response factors (ARFs) may play important roles in this process. Here, we examined changes in gene expression(More)
SlARF2a is expressed in most plant organs, including roots, leaves, flowers and fruits. A detailed expression study revealed that SlARF2a is mainly expressed in the leaf nodes and cross-sections of the nodes indicated that SlARF2a expression is restricted to vascular organs. Decapitation or the application of 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) can initially promote(More)
