Pollination in self-fertilizing plants depends on the proper timing of filament elongation, anther dehiscence, and pollen maturation so that pollen grains capable of germination are deposited on the stigma surface. Auxin is known to be necessary for stamen development. For example, Cheng et al. (2006) found that stamen development is halted in the Arabidopsis auxin biosynthesis-defective mutant yuc2 yuc6. Cecchetti et al. (pages 1760– 1774) now show that auxin is critical for late stages of… Expand

EBL is very impressive phyto-hormone, which can ameliorate drought stress induced detrimental effects in plants and compared different EBL application methods concluded that seed priming and foliar application are more productive as compared with root application method. Expand
Identification of putative key genes for coastal environments and cold adaptation in mangrove Kandelia obovata through transcriptome analysis.
Transcriptome analyses were performed on different cold damaged plants of a mangrove species, Kandelia obovata, finding that distinct expression profiles of many key genes are related to extreme temperature responses, and revealing a global gene expression portrait across different tissues.

Expression of rolB in tobacco flowers affects the coordinated processes of anther dehiscence and style elongation.
Results suggest that auxin plays a key role in the timing of anther dehiscence, the dehISCence program is controlled by the somatic tissues of the anther, and auxin also regulates pistil development. Expand
Auxin biosynthesis by the YUCCA flavin monooxygenases controls the formation of floral organs and vascular tissues in Arabidopsis.
The YUC gene family is defined and it is shown unequivocally that four of the 11 predicted YUC flavin monooxygenases (YUC1, Y UC2, YUC4, and YUC6) play essential roles in auxin biosynthesis and plant development. Expand
