Dynamic localization of rop GTPases to the tonoplast during vacuole development. (1/3713)

Vacuoles are essential pleomorphic organelles that undergo dynamic changes during cell growth and differentiation in plants. How developmental signals are linked to vacuole biogenesis and development is poorly understood. In this report, we show that a Rop GTPase is localized to developing vacuoles in pea (Pisum sativum cv Extra Early Alaska). Rop belongs to the RHO family of Ras-related small GTP-binding proteins that are key molecular switches in a wide variety of eukaryotic signal transduction pathways. Using indirect immunofluorescence and an anti-Rop antibody, we showed that Rop proteins accumulate to high levels in rapidly growing tapetal cells of pea anthers. In these cells, Rop is localized to an endomembrane system that exists as dynamic pleomorphic networks: a perinuclear fine network decorated with punctate dots, a network composed of small spheres and tubules, and interconnected chambers. Colocalization with a tonoplast annexin VCaB42 shows that these dynamic networks represent the tonoplast. Our results suggest that the dynamic Rop-containing tonoplast networks represent a unique stage of vacuole development. The specific localization of Rop to developing vacuoles supports a role for Rop in signal transduction that mediates vacuole development in plants.  (+info)

A florigenic effect of sucrose in Fuchsia hybrida is blocked by gibberellin-induced assimilate competition. (2/3713)

The use of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry-selected ion monitoring along with a (13)C internal standard has allowed sensitive measurements of the sucrose (Suc) content of individual shoot apices of Fuchsia hybrida. With intact plants, as the photosynthetic irradiance increased, so did shoot apex Suc content, reaching saturation at about 500 micromol m(-2) s(-1). These same plants flowered at the higher irradiances, remaining vegetative in 10-h short days at an irradiance of 230 micromol m(-2) s(-1). The strong correlation (r = 0.93) in these studies between flowering and shoot apex Suc content indicates a role for Suc as a stimulus to flowering in this species. However, Suc is not the long-day (LD) "florigen" of F. hybrida because 2 to 4 LD given as a 14-h low-irradiance photoperiod extension (10-15 micromol m(-2) s(-1)) induced flowering but without increase in shoot apex Suc content. Flowering induced by either pathway, the LD- or the Suc-mediated one, was inhibited by applying gibberellin (GA) to the shoot tip. Such inhibition of flowering by GA, at least for the LD pathway, was associated with a reduced apex Suc content, enhanced elongation of subapical stem tissue, and a reduced import into the shoot apex of leaf-sourced assimilate. Thus, our findings show how GA inhibits flowering of F. hybrida and confirm the importance of nutrient diversion in regulating flowering.  (+info)

Cloning of an Arabidopsis patatin-like gene, STURDY, by activation T-DNA tagging. (3/3713)

Activation T-DNA tagging can generate dominant gain-of-function mutants by overexpression of a particular endogenous gene. We identified an activation-tagged mutant, sturdy, exhibiting a stiff inflorescence stem, thicker leaves, shorter siliques, larger seeds, round-shaped flowers, and delayed growth. It is most important that unlike its wild-type counterpart, this mutant is less prone to lodging. Cloning of STURDY revealed that in sturdy, there is an open reading frame containing a single intron encoding a patatin-like homolog. The T-DNA is inserted into the 3' region of the second exon. The mutant phenotype was shown to be the result of overexpression of STURDY by mRNA analysis and transgenic studies. Preliminary histological studies have revealed an increase in cell number in the inflorescence stem of mutant plants; however, additional studies are needed to better understand the overexpression phenotype.  (+info)

Petunia Ap2-like genes and their role in flower and seed development. (4/3713)

We have isolated three Apetala2 (Ap2)-like genes from petunia and studied their expression patterns by in situ hybridization. PhAp2A has a high sequence similarity to the A function gene Ap2 from Arabidopsis and a similar expression pattern during flower development, suggesting that they are cognate orthologs. PhAp2B and PhAp2C encode for AP2-like proteins that belong to a different subgroup of the AP2 family of transcription factors and exhibit divergent, nearly complementary expression patterns during flower development compared with PhAp2A. In contrast, all three PhAp2 genes are strongly expressed in endosperm. The phenotype of the petunia A-type mutant blind cannot be attributed to mutations in the petunia Ap2 homologs identified in this study, and reverse genetics strategies applied to identify phap2a mutants indicate that PhAp2A might not be essential for normal perianth development in petunia. Nevertheless, we show that PhAp2A is capable of restoring the homeotic transformations observed in flowers and seed of the ap2-1 mutant of Arabidopsis. Although the interspecific complementation proves that PhAp2A encodes a genuine Ap2 ortholog from petunia, additional factors may be involved in the control of perianth identity in this species.  (+info)

Optimisation of transgene action at the post-transcriptional level: high quality parthenocarpic fruits in industrial tomatoes. (5/3713)

BACKGROUND: Genetic engineering of parthenocarpy confers to horticultural plants the ability to produce fruits under environmental conditions that curtail fruit productivity and quality. The DefH9-iaaM transgene, whose predicted action is to confer auxin synthesis specifically in the placenta, ovules and derived tissues, has been shown to confer parthenocarpy to several plant species (tobacco, eggplant, tomato) and varieties. RESULTS: UC82 tomato plants, a typical cultivar used by the processing industry, transgenic for the DefH9-iaaM gene produce parthenocarpic fruits that are malformed. UC82 plants transgenic for the DefH9-RI-iaaM, a DefH9-iaaM derivative gene modified in its 5'ULR by replacing 53 nucleotides immediately upstream of the AUG initiation codon with an 87 nucleotides-long sequence derived from the rolA intron sequence, produce parthenocarpic fruits of high quality. In an in vitro translation system, the iaaM mRNA, modified in its 5'ULR is translated 3-4 times less efficiently than the original transcript. An optimal expressivity of parthenocarpy correlates with a reduced transgene mRNA steady state level in DefH9-RI-iaaM flower buds in comparison to DefH9-iaaM flower buds. Consistent with the known function of the iaaM gene, flower buds transgenic for the DefH9-RI-iaaM gene contain ten times more IAA than control untransformed flower buds, but five times less than DefH9-iaaM flower buds. CONCLUSIONS: By using an auxin biosynthesis transgene downregulated at the post-transcriptional level, an optimal expressivity of parthenocarpy has been achieved in a genetic background not suitable for the original transgene. Thus, the method allows the generation of a wider range of expressivity of the desired trait in transgenic plants.  (+info)

Evidence for an evolutionarily conserved interaction between cell wall biosynthesis and flowering in maize and sorghum. (6/3713)

BACKGROUND: Factors that affect flowering vary among different plant species, and in the grasses in particular the exact mechanism behind this transition is not fully understood. The brown midrib (bm) mutants of maize (Zea mays L.), which have altered cell wall composition, have different flowering dynamics compared to their wild-type counterparts. This is indicative of a link between cell wall biogenesis and flowering. In order to test whether this relationship also exists in other grasses, the flowering dynamics in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) were investigated. Sorghum is evolutionarily closely related to maize, and a set of brown midrib (bmr) mutants similar to the maize bm mutants is available, making sorghum a suitable choice for study in this context. RESULTS: We compared the flowering time (time to half-bloom) of several different bmr sorghum lines and their wild-type counterparts. This revealed that the relationship between cell wall composition and flowering was conserved in sorghum. Specifically, the mutant bmr7 flowered significantly earlier than the corresponding wild-type control, whereas the mutants bmr2, bmr4, bmr6, bmr12, and bmr19 flowered later than their wild-type controls. CONCLUSION: The change in flowering dynamics in several of the brown midrib sorghum lines provides evidence for an evolutionarily conserved mechanism that links cell wall biosynthesis to flowering dynamics. The availability of the sorghum bmr mutants expands the germplasm available to investigate this relationship in further detail.  (+info)

Antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects of Crocus sativus L. stigma and petal extracts in mice. (7/3713)

BACKGROUND: Crocus sativus L. (saffron) is used in folk medicine, for example as an antiedematogenic agent. We aimed to evaluate the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory activity of saffron extracts in mice. RESULTS: We used aqueous and ethanolic maceration extracts of Crocus sativus L. stigma and petals. Antinociceptive activity was examined using the hot plate and writhing tests. The effect of extracts against acute inflammation was studied using xylene induced ear edema in mice. The activity of the extracts against chronic inflammation was assessed by formalin-induced edema in the rat paw. In the hot plate tests, intraperitoneal injection of both extracts showed no significant antinociceptive activity in mice. The extracts exhibited antinociceptive activity against acetic acid induced writhing. Naloxone partially blocked only the antinociceptive activity of the stigma aqueous extract. Only the stigma extracts showed weak to moderate effect against acute inflammation. In chronic inflammation, both aqueous and ethanolic stigma extracts, as well as ethanolic petal extract, exerted anti-inflammatory effects. CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that aqueous and ethanolic extracts of saffron stigma and petal have an antinociceptive effect, as well as acute and/or chronic anti-inflammatory activity.  (+info)

Inheritance of flower color in periwinkle: orange-red corolla and white eye. (8/3713)

The commonly found flower colors in periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus)--pink, white, red-eyed, and pale pink center--are reported to be governed by the epistatic interaction between four genes--A, R, W, and I. The mode of inheritance of an uncommon flower color, orange-red corolla and white eye, was studied by crossing an accession possessing this corolla color with a white flowered variety (Nirmal). The phenotype of the F(1) plants and segregation data of F(2) and backcross generations suggested the involvement of two more interacting and independently inherited genes, one (proposed symbol E) determining the presence or absence of red eye and another (proposed symbol O) determining orange-red corolla.  (+info)

Introduction: Despite hundreds of training models for microsurgery being available in the literature, very few of them are scientifically validated. We chose to validate our low-fidelity training model on flower petals by comparing it headto-head with a moderate fidelity training model, the anastomosis on chicken leg femoral artery. Materials and methods: A total of 16 participants of different levels of expertise were randomized into 2 groups, 1 training on flower petals and 1 on chicken leg femoral arteries. The groups were evaluated on performing a rat femoral artery anastomosis using the validated Stanford Microsurgical Assessment (SMaRT) Scale. The Mann-Whitney U test was used to check for statistically significant differences between the groups. The flower petal sutures were also evaluated and Pearson correlation was used to check for associations between better petal anastomosis scores and better final SMaRT results. Results: After 6 weeks of flower petal training, microsurgical trainees ...

A flower is a flower is a flower. But in Victorian England, one of the most self-repressed societies in modern times, the practice of using flowers to communicate was developed. Over time a bouquet could visually speak of feelings and thoughts one could not or would not say in person to another particularly one you might be in love with. Of course anyone else familiar with the floral code could also know what the message was, or maybe even alter it…. sounds like a nice plot for a Victorian novel…. Several segments of society developed this language of flowers. The list below is probably incomplete and opinions may vary on this or that particular flower. They are not all edible by any means.

The species is dioecious. This means that each plant produces either "male flowers" (meaning that they have functional stamens) or "female flowers" (flowers with functional carpels), but not both.[9] At any one time, a dioecious plant produces only functionally staminate or functionally carpellate flowers. Staminate ("male") Amborella flowers do not have carpels, whereas the carpellate ("female") flowers have non-functional "staminodes", structures resembling stamens in which no pollen develops. Plants may change from one reproductive morphology to the other. In one study, seven cuttings from a staminate plant produced, as expected, staminate flowers at their first flowering, but three of the seven produced carpellate flowers at their second flowering.[10]. The small, creamy white flowers are arranged in inflorescences borne in the axils of foliage leaves.[11] The inflorescences have been described as cymes, with up to three orders of branching, each branch being terminated by a flower.[11] Each ...

Floral scent or flower scent is composed of all the volatile organic compounds (VOCs), or aroma compounds, emitted by floral tissue (e.g. flower petals). Floral scent is also referred to as aroma, fragrance, floral odour or perfume. Flower scent of most flowering plant species encompass a diversity of VOCs, sometimes up to several hundred different compounds. The primary functions of floral scent are to deter herbivorous and especially florivorous insects (see Plant defense against herbivory), and to attract pollinators. Floral scent is one of the most important communication channels mediating plant-pollinator interactions, along with visual cues (flower color, shape, etc.). Flower visitors such as insects and bats detect floral scent thanks to chemoreceptors of variable specificity to a specific VOC. The fixation of a VOC on a chemoreceptor triggers the activation of an antennal glomerulus, further projecting on an olfactory receptor neuron and finally triggering a behavioral response after ...

University of Otago Flower colour throughout the world is generally linked to various functional purposes, pollinator attraction in particular. Current knowledge regarding the functional significance of flower colour is, however, mainly based on studies from boreal, temperate, and tropical regions. This knowledge is not readily applicable to polar regions. Similar to lower latitudes, flower colour is often observed in polar regions, as well as flower colour polymorphisms. Pollinator attraction are considered to be the main purpose of flower colour, and the lack of pollinators in polar regions, where many plant species produce coloured flowers, causes the significance of colour to be unclear. Further, flower colour pigments are often quite energy expensive to produce, and in polar regions, nutrients, light and resources are limited. Hence, the question; what is the role of flower colour in reproductive success in polar regions? This thesis addresses this question of What is the role of flower ...

The cut flower industry and prolonging the post-harvest shelve life of cut flowers. The Royal FloraHolland flower market in Aalsmeer, Netherlands, is the largest flower auction in the world. On average 20 million flowers are sold every day in Aalsmeer. The problem is that millions of flowers need to be distributed all over the world in the shortest time possible, to ensure that the end consumer can still enjoy fresh flowers for at least a week. From Aalsmeer flowers are transported to Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, and from there to Europe, Africa, South America, and the United States. Flowers are transported from Aalsmeer to New York on an 8-hour flight. When flowers arrive in New York, they go to the New York flower market, and from there to retailers. The flower industry strives to get flowers from the grower to the consumer in under 48 hours. However, the moment the flower is cut, it starts to deteriorate. Let the students do desktop research on the role of ethylene in the ageing ...
Hmm - thats a good question. Flowers using bees, hummingbirds, bats, etc. for pollination are designed by evolution to attract these pollinators, and these are the flowers we see as beautiful. Plants that pollinate by the wind (e.g. most trees) do not have beautiful flowers. The smell, the nectar, the bulls-eye arrangement are all designed for pollinators. Bees being small tend to have eyes that are more receptive to small wavelengths (ultraviolet) and flowers have even more elaborate ultraviolet designs on them that cannot be seen by humans without special equipment. But why are they attractive to humans? Humans have no need of the nectar, but they find the sight and smell of flowers attractive. Human smell is designed by evolution. Any smell associated with bacterial danger causes a negative reaction in humans (dont eat meat that smells, dont eat poop, etc.). Flowers are designed to give the opposite smell to pollinators, and it works on humans too because our sense of smell is designed by ...
To ensure reproductive success, flowering time is sophisticatedly regulated by developmental processes that integrate various external and internal factors in plant. Recent studies showed that post-transcriptional control also plays important roles in flowering time regulation (Bezerra et al., 2004; Doyle et al., 2005; Kuhn et al., 2007; Liu et al., 2007b). In our study, AtBRNs regulate the flowering time through the post-transcriptional control of SOC1 activity. The atbrn1/atbrn2-3 double mutant flowered early under LD and SD conditions, and under SD conditions after vernalization treatment (Fig. 2a), and the early-flowering phenotype was associated with increased expression of AP1, LFY, and FT. Although these integrators have overlapping functions, SOC1 definitely regulates LFY expression (Lee & Lee, 2010). Consistently, the LFY transcript showed the highest rate of increase in these integrators. SOC1 RNA, which is not regulated by AtBRNs, could activate LFY expression in atbrn1/atbrn2-3. ...

The name "Bach Flower Remedies" is a generic term used by writers and therapists across the world to refer to the particular plant discoveries of Dr. Bach. Dr. Bach himself did not give his work a brand name. However, Bachs name was trademarked in 1979 by the company, Bach Flower Remedies, Ltd. to designate their particular brand of the flower remedies. (BFR, Ltd., is now owned by Nelson & Co. Limited.) A 2008 decision by the European Trade Marks Registry in the matter of registered trade marks owned by Nelsons (Bach Flower Remedies Ltd) ruled that "Bach" refers to Dr. Bach and "Bach Flower Remedies" refers to the flower remedies which Dr. Bach discovered and not exclusively to the branded products of one manufacturer.

The judgment was upheld on appeal, and again by the British House of Lords in a final ...
Bachs Rescue Remedies are known for their ability to produce a powerful calming effect on stressed and injured animals. Similar in preparation to homeopathic remedies, Bach flower remedies use diluted extracts of a variety of flowers and plants that have been potentized . This is a process of dilution and vigorous shaking that increases the potency of the essence from which the remedy is derived.. Dr. Edward Bach (1890-1936), a prominent English physician, developed the Bach Flower Remedies while he was working as a homeopathic practitioner. Dr. Bach used to sit and meditate in the woods while holding different types of flowers. He alleged to have felt very specific negative emotions when holding certain types of flowers. One flower would be associated with one particular negative emotion. He felt that the flower which caused him to feel the negative emotion could be used to treat a patient feeling that same emotion (a theory based on homeopathic principles). He went on to mix tincture ...

Although the floral structure described above is considered the "typical" structural plan, plant species show a wide variety of modifications from this plan. These modifications have significance in the evolution of flowering plants and are used extensively by botanists to establish relationships among plant species. For example, the two subclasses of flowering plants may be distinguished by the number of floral organs in each whorl: dicotyledons typically having 4 or 5 organs (or a multiple of 4 or 5) in each whorl and monocotyledons having three or some multiple of three. The number of carpels in a compound pistil may be only two, or otherwise not related to the above generalization for monocots and dicots.. In the majority of species individual flowers have both pistils and stamens as described above. These flowers are described by botanists as being perfect, bisexual, or hermaphrodite. However, in some species of plants the flowers are imperfect or unisexual: having only either male ...

To identify mango flower visitors and understand how the network of interactions in which they participate changes throughout the mango flowering season, flower visitor surveys were carried out monthly from July to September 2008, on each of the 12 farms, totalling 36 surveys. As anthesis is diurnal (Siqueira et al. 2008), surveys were performed during warm dry days (20-39 °C) with moderate wind speed (0-4 km h−1), between 8·00 and 16·00 h. On each farm, flower visitor data were recorded while walking one transect (60 × 2 × 2 m) placed within a randomly selected plot. Whenever open flowers were encountered, the observer would stop for 5-s and register all flower visitors, which were collected whenever possible for taxonomic identification. Mango is a hyperabundant flowering species, so the total number of flowers in the transect was estimated by counting the number of open flowers of three randomly selected inflorescences, the average being multiplied by the total number of inflorescences ...

These flowers have a similar fiery flare to watercress. They are easy to cultivate, requiring minimal attention, and they go great in any dish in need of a peppery punch.. Keep in mind, not all flowers are created equal. Organic is the only option when choosing amongst these blossoming beauties. Too delicate to be washed, flowers should be labeled "food grade" to avoid harmful chemical ingestion. "Edibles" should also be clearly labeled, as several flower species are poisonous to humans. Once youve found your flower, mix it up! Experiment with your favorite dishes, discovering the perfect flower flavors for you.

Squares are the flower bud that first appears on the plant when reproductive growth begins. The flower bud is enclosed by three bracts. Squares grow for about three weeks before a bloom appears. During this time numerous events are occurring within the flower bud structure. Two weeks before the square is visible on the plant, the floral stimulus is initiated, and just prior to the pin-head square, the number of ovules (potential seeds) is established. The male and female parts of the flower undergo their development within the square and the fiber cells begin to differentiate just prior to bloom. The actual number of seeds within a boll is dependent on effective fertilization of the bloom.. Blooms open at the culmination of the square period. The cells of the flower petals expand rapidly during the 24 hours preceding bloom, and the flower opens during the early to midmorning hours. During this time the male and female flower parts expand rapidly. The flower opens when the cotton reproductive ...
In this thesis, I combined observational studies with field and greenhouse experiments to examine selection on life history traits and variation in tolerance and resistance against herbivores in natural populations of the annual herb Arabidopsis thaliana in its native range. I investigated (1) phenotypic selection on flowering time and plant size, (2) the effects of timing of germination on plant fitness, (3) the effect of leaf damage on seed production, and (4) correlations between resistance against a specialist and a generalist insect herbivore.. In all three study populations, flowering time was negatively related to plant fitness, but in only one of the populations, significant selection on flowering time was detected when controlling for size prior to the flowering season. The results show that correlations between flowering time and plant fecundity may be confounded by variation in plant size prior to the reproductive season.. A field experiment detected conflicting selection on ...
One places a few drops of the flower essence into ones drinking water or favorite bottle of juice. Because homeopathics become more powerful the more dilute they are, their effect is not greater when you take a larger dose. The frequency with which you come into contact with their energy, however, does have an impact--the more often, the better. Thats why its better to sip them all day long.. Bach flowers can be easily self-prescribed. Simply get one of the books listed below and review the emotional descriptions of each flower. There are flowers for fears of different types, over-critical behavior and for people who are space cadets. The more closely the emotion described matches the one you have, the more powerfully the flower will work for you. Most people, upon reviewing the flowers descriptions, have little difficulty determining the ones they need. If you are in doubt, ask a friend or loved one to give you their opinion. Be sure youre ready to hear the answer and make that ...

Weve just had the first full flush of elder flowers since we cut the bush back a few months ago. In a couple of his books, John Seymour recommends picking the flowers early in the day and choosing those on top of the bush that have had the full benefit of the sun. So armed with my trusty Fiskars clippers, I removed about three quarters of the flowers and set to work. The elder flowers must be used straight away. The cordial recipe is simple, and similar to the one I use for lemon cordial, with the exception of added citric acid and the flowers have to be covered with boiling syrup and then steeped for 24 hours. I used Sophie Grigsons recipe here but added a cup of lemon juice as I had some in the fridge I wanted to use. There is a very small amount of cyanide-like compound in the stems of elders, so make sure you pick the flowers off the stems. You dont have to be obsessed with removing every stem, and dont be scared of it, just make sure you leave most of them out of your cordial ...

Citation: Richards, C.M., Reeves, P.A., He, Y., Schmitz, R.J., Amasino, R.M., Panella, L.W. 2007. Evolutionary conservation of the FLC mediated vernalization response. Meeting Abstract for the Plant and Animal Genome XV conference. January 13-17, 2007, San Diego, California. pp. 129. Interpretive Summary: In many plants, exposure to a prolonged period of cold during the winter promotes flowering in the spring, a process termed vernalization. In Arabidopsis thaliana, the vernalization requirement of winter-annual ecotypes is caused by the MADS box gene FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC). The extent to which this vernalization mechanism has been conserved during the diversification of flowering plants is not well understood. Using phylogenetic analysis, we identified homologs of FLC in species representing the three major eudicot lineages. FLC homologs have not previously been documented outside the family Brassicaceae. We show that the sugar beet (Beta vulgaris) FLC homolog BvFL1 is, like FLC, a repressor ...
