Florigenic and Antiflorigenic Signalling in Plants

By Ioannis G. Matsoukas, Andrea J. Massiah and Brian Thomas


The evidence that FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) protein and its paralog TWIN SISTER OF FT, act as the long distance floral stimulus, or at least that they are part of it in diverse plant species, has attracted much attention in recent years. Studies to understand the physiological and molecular apparatuses that integrate spatial and temporal signals to regulate developmental transition in plants have occupied countless scientists and have resulted in an unmanageably large amount of research data. Analysis of these data has helped to identify multiple systemic florigenic and antiflorigenic regulators. This study gives an overview of the recent research on gene products, phytohormones and other metabolites that have been demonstrated to have florigenic or antiflorigenic functions in plants
