CRISPR/Cas9-mediated mutagenesis of the EPHEMERAL1 locus that regulates petal senescence in Japanese morning glory.


Flower longevity is one of the most important traits in ornamental plants. In Japanese morning glory (Ipomoea nil), EPHEMERAL1 (EPH1), a NAC transcription factor, is reportedly a key regulator of petal senescence. CRISPR/Cas9-mediated targeted mutagenesis is a powerful tool for crop breeding as well as for biological research. Here we report the application… (More)
