Ectopic expression of the BoTFL1-like gene of Bambusa oldhamii delays blossoming in Arabidopsis thaliana and rescues the tfl1 mutant phenotype

H. Y. Zeng, Lu, Y. T., Yang, X. M., Xu, Y. H., and Lin, X. C., Ectopic expression of the BoTFL1-like gene of Bambusa oldhamii delays blossoming in Arabidopsis thaliana and rescues the tfl1 mutant phenotype, vol. 14, pp. 9306-9317, 2015.

TERMINAL FLOWER1 (TFL1) homologous genes play major roles in maintaining vegetative growth and inflorescence meristem characteristics in various plant species; however, to date, the function of the bamboo TFL1 homologous gene has not been described. In this study, a TFL1 homologous gene was isolated from Bambusa oldhamii and designated as BoTFL1-like. Phylogenetic analysis of TFL1 homologous genes revealed that BoTFL1-like shared more than 90% identity with the TFL1 genes of other Gramineae.
