A Zinc Protein That Controls Morning-specific Growth in Plants
Growth in plants is modulated by a complex interplay between internal signals and external cues.
Compositions, Cells, and Plants that Include BK11, A Negative Regulator of BRI1-Mediated BR Signaling
The BRI1 gene encodes a receptor serine/threonine kinase. Loss-of-function mutations in BRI1 result in dwarf plants that resemble steroid-deficient plants.
Modulation of Flowering Time by the PFT1 Locus
A gene useful in protecting crops from shade-avoidance resulting in increased yields
DAS5, a P450 Protein Involved in the Brassinosteroid Biosynthesis Pathway of Plants
Genetic modifications of plants to increase the expression of DAS5 results in a variety of useful phenotypes such as increased fresh weight and increased overall plant size.
Genes Involved in Brassinosteroid Hormone Action in Plants
Methods of altering plant phenotypes including plant size by altering the genes encoding the Brassinozole Resistant 1 (BZR1) Polypeptide.
Expression of Flavin-Containing Monooxygenases in Plants
A gene to increase plant growth and yield by increasing endogenous auxin levels.
Receptor Kinase, BIN1
Genetic modification of plants to increase BIN1 expression results in a variety of useful phenotypes such as increased yield, enhanced disease resistance, and increased biomass
Plant steroid 5 alpha Reductase, DET 2
Increased plant yield using a novel gene, DET2 involved in brassinolide synthesis.
