Floral signaling, especially through floral scent, is often highly complex, and little is known about the molecular mechanisms and evolutionary causes of this complexity. In this study, we focused on the evolution of “floral scent genes” and the associated changes in their functions in three closely related orchid species of the genus Gymnadenia. We developed a benchmark repertoire of 2,571 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) in Gymnadenia odoratissima. For the functional characterization and… Expand

TLDR
The results suggested that Pm CFAT1, but not PmCFAT2, contributed to eugenol synthesis in P. mume, a traditional Chinese flower known to produce a strong floral fragrance. Expand
Sweet Basil Has Distinct Synthases for Eugenol Biosynthesis in Glandular Trichomes and Roots with Different Regulatory Mechanisms
TLDR
This study reveals the presence of multiple eugenol synthases in sweet basil and provides new insights into their diversity and tissue specific regulation. Expand
Orchid floral volatiles: Biosynthesis genes and transcriptional regulations
TLDR
This review mainly concentrated orchid floral volatile regulation and compounds synthesis responsible pathways of floral scent in orchids, and mentioned emission ofOrchid floral volatiles and their function in pollination ecology. Expand
The molecular bases of floral scent evolution under artificial selection: insights from a transcriptome analysis in Brassica rapa
TLDR
The study shows that selection on an individual trait can impose changes in the expression of several different genes, which could explain pleiotropic responses in the biosynthetic network of floral volatiles. Expand
Duplication and selection in β-ketoacyl-ACP synthase gene lineages in the sexually deceptive Chiloglottis (Orchidaceace).
TLDR
It is shown that the transcriptional and biochemical dynamics linked to chiloglottone biosynthesis in active tissues are conserved across ChILoglottis, and a combination of tissue-specific expression and relaxed purifying selection operating at specific fatty acid pathway genes may hold the key to the evolution of chilglottones.

Evolution and developmental genetics of floral display—A review of progress
TLDR
The recent progress on evo‐devo studies of floral display including floral symmetry, petal fusion, floral color, floral scent, and inflorescences is reviewed and the molecular genetic approaches applied are reviewed. Expand
Biosynthesis of methyleugenol and methylisoeugenol in Daucus carota leaves: Characterization of eugenol/isoeugenol synthase and O-Methyltransferase.
TLDR
A cDNA encoding S-adenosyl-L-methionine:eugenol/isoeugenol O-methyltransferase 1 (DcE(I)OMT1) is identified that produces methyleugenol and methylisoe Eugenol via methylation of the para-OH-group of their respective precursors. Expand
Transcriptional response of Asarum heterotropoides Fr. Schmidt var. mandshuricum (Maxim.) Kitag. leaves grown under full and partial daylight conditions
TLDR
High light induces accumulation of major bioactive ingredients A. heterotropides volatile oil and this is ascribed to upregulation of key genes such as cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase and cytochrome p450719As. Expand

Floral organ identity genes in the orchid Dendrobium crumenatum.
TLDR
The findings suggested that there is partial conservation in the B and C function genes between Arabidopsis and orchid, however, gene duplication might have led to the divergence in gene expression and regulation, possibly followed by functional divergence, resulting in the unique floral ontogeny in orchids.

The MADS and the Beauty: Genes Involved in the Development of Orchid Flowers
TLDR
The emerging theory regarding the evolution of floral diversity in orchids proposes that the diversification of the orchid perianth was a consequence of duplication events and changes in the regulatory regions of the MADS-box genes, followed by sub- and neo-functionalization. Expand

TLDR
The 'orchid code' hypothesis, a combinatorial genetic model suggesting that differences between the organs of the orchid perianth (outer tepals, inner lateral tepal and labellum) are generated by theCombinatorial differential expression of four DEF-like genes, is tested. Expand
Analysis of Organ-specific, Expressed Genes in Oncidium Orchid by Subtractive Expressed Sequence Tags Library
TLDR
An efficient subtractive cDNA library was developed that represented an explicit transcriptome profile of Oncidium pseudobulb, and most genes that were differentially expressed are important in early flowering development, carbohydrate metabolism and stress-response physiology. Expand
The Tomato Terpene Synthase Gene Family1[W][OA]

It is shown here that the genome of cultivated tomato contains 44 terpene synthase (TPS) genes, including 29 that are functional or potentially functional, and 10 additional tomato terPene synthases are reported to have specific in vitro catalytic activity. Expand

It is shown that all frequent floral terata, including all peloric types, can be explained by monogenic gain- or-loss-of-function mutants, changing either expression of a DEF-like or CYC-like gene. Expand
