Molecular characterization and functional analysis of a Flowering locus T homolog gene from a Phalaenopsis orchid

D. M. Li, Lǚ, F. B., Zhu, G. F., Sun, Y. B., Liu, H. L., Liu, J. W., and Wang, Z., Molecular characterization and functional analysis of a Flowering locus T homolog gene from a Phalaenopsis orchid, vol. 13, pp. 5982-5994, 2014.

Warm day and cool night conditions significantly induce reproductive spike formation in Phalaenopsis plants; hence, determining the flowering mechanism regulating the reproductive transition is important. Flowering locus T (FT) plays important roles in flowering induction in several plants. To explore spike induction by warm days and cool nights in Phalaenopsis orchids, we isolated the FT (PhFT) from Phalaenopsis hybrid Fortune Saltzman.
