Post-transcriptional regulation of FLOWERING LOCUS T modulates heat-dependent source-sink development in potato (Curr Biol)

Tuber formation (tuberization) in potatoes is controlled by both endogenous and environmental signals particularly day length and temperature. Long days and high temperature impede tuberization while it is enhanced by short days and low temperature. When conditions are favourable for tuberization, shoot-derived mobile signals are translocated into the root where tuber formation is activated. It […]
