Photoperiod regulates many different developmental processes, including floral induction in several species and tuber formation in potato. Research in Arabidopsis led to the identification of FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) as a main component of the florigen or mobile flowering promoting signal produced in the leaves. A similar mobile signal or tuberigen has been reported to induce tuber formation in potato, recent evidence obtained in our laboratory indicates that a potato homolog of FT encodes this… CONTINUE READING
