The transition from vegetative to reproductive growth is an essential process in the life cycle of plants. Plant floral induction pathways respond to both environmental and endogenous cues and much has been learnt about these genetic pathways by studying mutants of Arabidopsis. Gibberellins (GAs) are plant growth regulators important in many aspects of plant growth and in Arabidopsis they promote flowering. Here we provide genetic evidence that GAs inhibit flowering in grapevine. A grapevine… Expand
Flowering
Abstract The transition from vegetative growth to flowering in higher plants is controlled by environmental conditions and developmental regulation. The complexity of this transition is created by anExpand
Genes involved in grapevine flowering
Introduction Plants adapt their flowering time to the environment in which they grow for successful reproduction. A multitude of signals are involved in the induction, evocation and initiation ofExpand
Dissecting the control of shoot development in grapevine: genetics and genomics identify potential regulators
TLDR
The phenotype of the dwarfed grapevine plants was similar to that of clf mutants of A.Thaliana and orthologues of the known targets of CLF in A. thaliana were differentially expressed in the dwar fed plants, which suggests that CLF, a major developmental regulator in A., also controls shoot development in grapevine.

Control of flowering time and growth cessation in Arabidopsis and Populus trees
TLDR
Results provide corroborative evidence that LEAFY is regulated by a labile negative regulator, which possibly represses an apex-specific activator, as well as explaining how Populus trees measure daylength and regulate the critical daylength, thus accounting for the variation in this parameter in trees originating from different latitudes. Expand
New insights into grapevine flowering.
TLDR
An understanding of the function of key genes controlling the development of uncommitted primordia, floral induction and development, and fruit set in grapevine will provide new opportunities for improving vineyard fruitfulness. Expand
A molecular genetic perspective of reproductive development in grapevine.
TLDR
This paper reviews the current understanding of the genetic control of grapevine flowering and the impact of viticulture management treatments and environmental variables on yield and identifies issues that need to be addressed. Expand
Genetic mechanisms in the repression of flowering by gibberellins in apple (Malus x domestica Borkh.)
TLDR
The rapid and robust upregulation of genes associated with GA catabolism in response to exogenous GA, combined with the decreased expression of GA biosynthetic genes, highlights GA feedforward and feedback regulation in the apple shoot apex. Expand
Overexpression of RoDELLA impacts the height, branching, and flowering behaviour of Pelargonium × domesticum transgenic plants
TLDR
It is demonstrated that pelargonium could be used to validate ornamental gene as the rose DELLA gene, and modified many aspects of plant developmental pathways, as the plant growth, the transition of vegetative to floral stage and the ability of rooting. Expand
Genetic regulation of flowering time in annual and perennial plants
TLDR
The current understanding in genetic regulation of the phase transition from vegetative to reproductive growth is discussed by using Arabidopsis as a model and how this knowledge has been successfully applied for identifying homologous genes from perennial crops is described. Expand
A Novel Dwarfing Mutation in a Green Revolution Gene from Brassica rapa1
TLDR
A novel dwarf mutant from Brassica rapa (Brrga1-d) is reported, caused by substitution of a conserved amino acid in the C-terminal domain of a DELLA protein that confers nondeleterious dwarf phenotypes when transferred to Arabidopsis and oilseed rape, indicating its potential usefulness in other crop species.

Gibberellins Promote Flowering of Arabidopsis by Activating the LEAFY Promoter
TLDR
It is found that the failure of gibberellin-deficient ga1-3 mutants to flower in short days was paralleled by the absence of LEAFY promoter induction, and a causal connection between these two events was confirmed by the ability of a constitutively expressed LEAFy transgene to restore flowering to ga1 -3 mutants in shortDays. Expand
‘Green revolution’ genes encode mutant gibberellin response modulators
TLDR
It is shown that Rht-B1/Rht-D1 and maize dwarf-8 (d8), are orthologues of the Arabidopsis Gibberellin Insensitive (GAI) gene, which encode proteins that resemble nuclear transcription factors and contain an SH2-like domain, indicating that phosphotyrosine may participate in gibberelli signalling. Expand
Extragenic suppressors of the Arabidopsis gai mutation alter the dose-response relationship of diverse gibberellin responses.
TLDR
The results of these experiments show that spy-7 and gar2-1 affect the GA dose-response relationship for a wide range of GA responses and suggest that all GA-regulated processes are controlled through a negatively acting GA-signaling pathway. Expand
Integration of floral inductive signals in Arabidopsis
TLDR
In Arabidopsis, floral induction leads ultimately to the upregulation of floral meristem-identity genes such as LEAFY, indicating that floral inductive signals are integrated upstream of LEAFy, demonstrating that the LEAF y promoter integrates environmental and endogenous signals controlling flowering time. Expand
Floral induction and determination: where is flowering controlled?
TLDR
The induction of flowering leads to the specification of flowers at the shoot apex and in Arabidopsis, floral specification and inflorescence patterning are regulated largely by the interactions between the genes TERMINAL FLOWER, LEAFY and APETALA1/CAULIFLOWER. Expand
When to switch to flowering.
TLDR
The use of a molecular genetic approach in Arabidopsis has resulted in the identification and cloning of many of the genes involved in regulating floral transition, and the current view on the molecular function of these genes, their division into different genetic pathways, and how the pathways interact in a complex regulatory network are summarized.

The anatomy of reproductive structures of cultivated grapes is summarized from selected literature and some cultivars are characterized by so-called seedless berries. Expand

A dwarf mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. was found to be less sensitive to applied gibberellins than the wild type, and this character was controlled by one partially-dominant gene (denotedExpand

TLDR
This work has shown that the transcriptional regulation of several genes, the floral meristem identity gene LEAFY and the 'flowering-time' genes FLOWERING LOCUS T and SUPPRESSOR of OVEREXPRESSION of CO 1, is a point at which multiple pathways that promote flowering are integrated. Expand
Tendrils, inflorescences and fruitfulness: A molecular perspective
TLDR
A grapevine flowering model has been developed and will be used as a reference for testing grapevine homologues of Arabidopsis genes known to be involved in flowering, andotype-dependent and -independent strategies for overcoming the delay in flowering observed for both juvenile transgenic grapevine plants and progeny from breeding programs are discussed.
