Acta Horticulturae   1120 105-109   Jul 2016
The elucidation of the mechanism of petal opening and senescence is important to extend the flower longevity of ornamental crop. Petal opening is caused by cell expansion, which is due to water influx and relaxation of cell-wall strength. Petal se...

A long vase life of cut flowers is valued highly by consumers. Cut Eustoma flowers have gained popularity during recent decades in Japan but there are few studies on the postharvest physiology and technology of the flowers. The vase life of cut Eu...

The onset and progression of petal senescence, which is a type of programmed cell death (PCD), are tightly controlled by multiple genes. Genes showing changes in expression during petal senescence in Japanese morning glory (Ipomoea nil) were isola...

Autophagy   5 546-547   May 2009
Petal senescence is a type of programmed cell death (PCD) that is tightly regulated by multiple genes. We recently reported that a putative membrane protein, InPSR26, regulates progression of PCD during petal senescence in Japanese morning glory (...
