Genome-wide analysis of the AP2/ERF superfamily in peach (Prunus persica)

C. H. Zhang, Shangguan, L. F., Ma, R. J., Sun, X., Tao, R., Guo, L., Korir, N. K., and Yu, M. L., Genome-wide analysis of the AP2/ERF superfamily in peach (Prunus persica), vol. 11, pp. 4789-4809, 2013.

We identified 131 AP2/ERF (APETALA2/ethylene-responsive factor) genes in material from peach using the gene sequences of AP2/ERF amino acids of Arabidopsis thaliana (Brassicaceae) as probes. Based on the number of AP2/ERF domains and individual gene characteristics, the AP2/ERF superfamily gene in peach can be classified broadly into three families, ERF (ethylene-responsive factor), RAV (related to ABI3/VP1), and AP2 (APETALA2), containing 104, 5, and 21 members, respectively, along with a solo gene (ppa005376m).
