Phytohormones, such as auxin (IAA) and gibberellin (GA), are known to be essential for fruit development. We utilized GA-deficient (gib-3) and diageotropica (dgt) tomato mutants to elucidate the effects of single hormones in the pericarp. The application of IAA or GA, respectively, to gib-3 or dgt single mutants induced a significant morphological(More)
Solanum lycopersicum auxin response factor 10 (SlARF10) is post-transcriptionally regulated by Sl-miR160. Overexpression of a Sl-miR160-resistant SlARF10 (mSlARF10) resulted in narrower leaflet blades with larger stomata but lower densities. 35S:mSlARF10-6 plants with narrower excised leaves had greater water loss, which was in contrast to the wild type(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)
