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.
Methods and Compositions to Modulate Ethylene Sensitivity
Novel transcription factors affecting ethylene sensitivity in plants
Ethylene Insensitive Plants
Mutants conferring ethylene insensitivity on plants
Genetic Control of Organ Abscission (NEVERSHED)
Mutation in the NEVERSHED family resulting in decreased plant organ abscission. NEV provides opportunities to increase crop yield and to control shedding.
Method of Increasing Growth and Yield in Plants (Cyclin)
CYC1 Cyclin gene, which promotes increased root mass, shoot and fruit growth
Metabolic engineering of lipid metabolism by improving fatty acid binding and transport
Metabolic pathway engineering of lipids in plants; protein crystallography and design.
Modulation of Mevalonate-Independent Isoprenoid Biosynthetic Pathway
Templates for the design of novel antibacterial and antiparasitic drugs
Flowering Locus T (FT) and Genetically Modified Plants having Modulated Flower Development
A novel gene that modulates the flowering time of plants.
Genetically Modified Plants Having Modulated Flower Development
Inducing early flowering or sterility in plants
