Molecular cloning and photoperiod-regulated expression of gibberellin 20-oxidase from the long-day plant spinach.

Abstract

Spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) is a long-day (LD) rosette plant in which stem growth under LD conditions is mediated by gibberellins (GAs). Major control points in spinach are the later steps of sequential oxidation and elimination of C-20 of C20-GAs. Degenerate oligonucleotide primers were used to obtain a polymerase chain reaction product from spinach… (More)
