The molecular signals for the development of the ovary into fruit following ovule fertilization are not clear. However, in many species, including tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.), auxins and auxin transport inhibitors can substitute for fertilization as activators of fruit set, suggesting that this plant hormone plays a key role in this process. In agreement, transgenes for auxin biosynthesis expressed under ovary- or ovule-specific promoters were shown earlier to enable parthenocarpic… CONTINUE READING
