The R2R3MYB proteins comprise one of the largest families of transcription factors and play regulatory roles in developmental processes and defense responses in plants. However, there has been relatively little effort to systematically carry out comprehensive genomic and functional analyses of these genes in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.), a reference species for Solanaceae plants, and the model plant for fruit development. In this study, a total of 121 R2R3MYB genes were identified in the… CONTINUE READING
