Characterization of the tomato falsiflora mutant shows that fa mutation mainly alters the development of the inflorescence resulting in the replacement of flowers by secondary shoots, but also produces a late-flowering phenotype with an increased number of leaves below first and successive inflorescences. This pattern suggests that the FALSIFLORA (FA) locus regulates both floral meristem identity and flowering time in tomato in a similar way to the floral identity genes FLORICAULA (FLO) of… CONTINUE READING
