cDNA Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (cDNA-AFLP) analysis was performed on pre-anthesis tomato flower buds (0.5 cm long) collected from DefH9-iaaM and DefH9-RI-iaaM parthenocarpic and wild-type plants, with the aim to identify genes involved in very early phases of tomato fruit development. We detected 212 transcripts differentially expressed in auxinipersynthesising pre-anthesis flower buds, 65 of them (31%) have unknown function. The data presented might contribute to elucidate the molecular basis of the fruiting process and to develop new methods to confer parthenocarpy to species of agronomic interest.

Abstract

cDNA Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (cDNA-AFLP) analysis was performed on pre-anthesis tomato flower buds (0.5 cm long) collected from DefH9-iaaM and DefH9-RI-iaaM parthenocarpic and wild-type plants, with the aim to identify genes involved in very early phases of tomato fruit development. We detected 212 transcripts differentially expressed in auxinipersynthesising pre-anthesis flower buds, 65 of them (31%) have unknown function. The data presented might contribute to elucidate the molecular basis of the fruiting process and to develop new methods to confer parthenocarpy to species of agronomic interest.
