LOW EXPRESSION OF RTFL1C RELEASES EXPRESSION OF RLFY, WHICH INDUCES RECURRENT FLOWERING IN ROSE

F. Wang, L.-J. Lian, Q.-L. Liu
Recurrent flowering is an ornamental trait with great importance in modern roses. Our studies showed that low expression of RTFL1c releases expression of RLFY which induces recurrent flowering in roses. It is suggested that the recurrent flowering habit is a qualitative-quantitative trait rather than a strict qualitative one which is controlled by a recessive monogene and some multigenes.
