Regions associated with repression of the barley (Hordeum vulgare) VERNALIZATION1 gene are not required for cold induction

Activity of the VERNALIZATION1 (VRN1) gene is required for flowering in temperate cereals such as wheat and barley. In varieties that require prolonged exposure to cold to flower (vernalization), VRN1 is expressed at low levels and is induced by vernalization to trigger flowering. In other varieties, deletions or insertions in the first intron of the VRN1… CONTINUE READING
