We herein report the molecular characterization of grape expansins, VvEXPA14 and VvEXPA18. VvEXPA14 and VvEXPA18 transcription was detected in grape berries at 2 weeks post flowering and their expression was upregulated during growth phase I, the period of rapid berry expansion. Experiments using VvEXPA14:GFP or VvEXPA18:GFP fusion proteins demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
