FD, a bZIP Protein Mediating Signals from the Floral Pathway Integrator FT at the Shoot Apex
FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) is a conserved promoter of flowering that acts downstream of various regulatory pathways, including one that mediates photoperiodic induction through CONSTANS (CO), and isExpand

Hd3a, a rice ortholog of the Arabidopsis FT gene, promotes transition to flowering downstream of Hd1 under short-day conditions.
Heading date 3a (Hd3a) has been detected as a heading-date-related quantitative trait locus in a cross between rice cultivars Nipponbare and Kasalath. A previous study revealed that the KasalathExpand

TWIN SISTER OF FT (TSF) acts as a floral pathway integrator redundantly with FT.
In Arabidopsis, several genetic pathways controlling the floral transition (flowering) are integrated at the transcriptional regulation of FT, LFY and SOC1. TSF is the closest homolog of FT inExpand

Normal host prion protein necessary for scrapie-induced neurotoxicity
ACCUMULATION of the prion protein PrPSc, a pathological and protease-resistant isoform of the normal host protein PrPc, is a feature of prion disease such as scrapie1,2. It is still unknown whetherExpand

Ectopic Expression of an FT Homolog from Citrus Confers an Early Flowering Phenotype on Trifoliate Orange (Poncirus trifoliata L. Raf.)
Citrus FT (CiFT) cDNA, which promoted the transition from the vegetative to the reproductive phase in Arabidopsis thaliana, when constitutively expressed was introduced into trifoliate orangeExpand

CRYPTIC PRECOCIOUS/MED12 is a Novel Flowering Regulator with Multiple Target Steps in Arabidopsis
The proper timing of flowering is of crucial importance for reproductive success of plants. Regulation of flowering is orchestrated by inputs from both environmental and endogenous signals such asExpand

Switching between cortical and subcortical sensorimotor pathways.
It is well known that the reaction times of visually guided saccades exhibit a bimodal distribution. Those with extremely short reaction times are termed 'express saccades'. In their case, visualExpand

Computational studies on acquisition and adaptation of ocular following responses based on cerebellar synaptic plasticity.
To investigate how cerebellar synaptic plasticity guides the acquisition and adaptation of ocular following response (OFR), a large-scale network model was developed. The model includes the cerebralExpand

Molecular basis of late-flowering phenotype caused by dominant epi-alleles of the FWA locus in Arabidopsis.
The late-flowering phenotype of dominant fwa mutants is caused by hypomethylation in the FWA locus leading to ectopic expression of a homeodomain leucine zipper (HD-ZIP) protein. However, little isExpand

Transcriptional changes in CiFT-introduced transgenic trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata L. Raf.).
Ectopic expression of a Flowering Locus T (CiFT) from Citrus confers an early flowering phenotype on trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata L. Raf.). To profile transcriptional effects of CiFT, mRNAExpand
