A candidate auxin-responsive expression marker gene, EgIAA9, for somatic embryogenesis in oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.)


This study correlates the potential for somatic embryogenesis in cultured leaf explants of oil palm trees with changes in the expression of hormone-responsive genes. The results show that expression of the putative Aux/IAA gene EgIAA9 is specifically correlated to somatic embryogenesis. A regression model for embryogenesis indicated a predictive R2 value of… (More)
