TIR1 and its homologues act as auxin receptors and play a crucial role in auxin-mediated plant development. While the functions of auxin receptor genes have been widely studied in Arabidopsis thaliana, there has been no report on the consequences of TIR1 overexpression in plants that regulate fruit development. Here a putative tomato auxin receptor gene,(More)
Successful completion of fruit developmental programs depends on the interplay between multiple phytohormones. However, besides ethylene, the impact of other hormones on fruit quality traits remains elusive. A previous study has shown that down-regulation of SlARF4, a member of the tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) auxin response factor (ARF) gene family,(More)
A full-length cytochrome P450 cDNA, CYP71A2, was cloned from tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) by RT-PCR and RACE. CYP71A2 (GenBank accession no. GQ370622) encoded a single polypeptide of 495 amino acid residues and shared 46–68% of identity with CYP71A1 which associated with avocado fruit ripening. The polypeptide, which held the conserved domains in(More)
The involvement of ethylene in fruit ripening is well documented, though knowledge regarding the crosstalk between ethylene and other hormones in ripening is lacking. We discovered that AUXIN RESPONSE FACTOR 2A (ARF2A), a recognized auxin signaling component, functions in the control of ripening. ARF2A expression is ripening regulated and reduced in the(More)
Flowering Chinese cabbage is a stalk vegetable whose quality and yield are directly related to stalk development. However, no comprehensive investigations on stalk development have been performed. To address this issue, the present study used RNA sequencing to investigate transcriptional regulation at three key stages (seedling, bolting, and flowering) of(More)
Ethylene is the main regulator of climacteric fruit ripening, by contrast the putative role of other phytohormones in this process remains poorly understood. The present study brings auxin signaling components into the mechanism regulating tomato fruit ripening through the functional characterization of Auxin Response Factor2 (SlARF2) which encodes a(More)
The widespread use of nanomaterials raises concern over their effects and roles in plants. Many researches have proved that nanoparticles could promote the growth and development of plants, so as our previous experiments in lettuce. However, the molecular regulation mechanisms involved in the lettuce treated by nanoparticles remain largely unknown. Herein,(More)

Outsourcing production is one of the main existence modes for China's foreign trade enterprises. Only from the perspective of elements theory of comparative advantage is not adequate. Based on the basic principal-agent models and joining asset-specific variables, this paper tries to analyze the effect of technological innovation for organizational change.(More)
Members of the TOPLESS gene family emerged recently as key players in gene repression in several mechanisms, especially in auxin perception. The TOPLESS genes constitute, in 'higher-plant' genomes, a small multigenic family comprising four to 11 members. In this study, this family was investigated in tomato, a model plant for Solanaceae species and fleshy(More)
