Deciphering different layers of regulation of FLOWERING LOCUS D, a bZIP transcription factor that promotes flowering of Arabidopsis

Project description

Molecular insight into the regulation of floral transition in plants

The process by which plants switch from vegetative to reproductive growth is known as floral transition. The flowering stimulus comes from the Flowering Locus T (FT) gene, which reprograms the transcription of floral identity genes, thereby inducing flowering. The EU-funded FD Net project aims to provide a deeper understanding of the floral transition process in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana by focussing on the key transcription factor Flowering Locus D (FD) and its transcriptomic network. Investigation of the regulatory steps that control FD activity, including post-translational modifications, will help decipher FD function and provide fundamental knowledge on floral transition in plants.
