    • Basic pentacysteine proteins mediate MADS domain complex binding to the DNA for tissue-specific expression of target genes in Arabidopsis 

      Simonini, Sara; Roig Villanova, Irma; Gregis, Veronica; Colombo, Bilitis; Colombo, Lucia; Kater, Martin M. (Wiley (Blackwell Publishing), 2012)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      BASIC PENTACYSTEINE (BPC) transcription factors have been identified in a large variety of plant species. In Arabidopsis thaliana there are seven BPC genes, which, except for BPC5, are expressed ubiquitously. BPC genes are ...
    • MADS-box and bHLH transcription factors coordinate transmitting tract development in arabidopsis thaliana 

      Di Marzo, Mauricio; Roig Villanova, Irma; Caselli, Francesca; Gregis, Veronica; Chiara, Matteo; Colombo, Lucia; Kater, Martin M.; Zanchetti, Eva; Bardetti, Paola; Guazzotti, Elisabetta; Mendes, Marta Adelina (2020-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The MADS-domain transcription factor SEEDSTICK (STK) controls several aspects of plant reproduction. STK is co-expressed with CESTA (CES), a basic Helix-Loop-Helix (bHLH) transcription factor-encoding gene. CES was reported ...
    • Maternal control of PIN1 is required for female gametophyte development in Arabidopsis 

      Roig Villanova, Irma; Masiero, Simona; Colombo, Lucia; Ceccato, Luca; Sinha Roy, Dola; Bencivenga, Stefano; Ditengou, Franck Anicet; Palme, Klaus; Simon, Rüdger (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2013)
      Article
      Open Access
      Land plants are characterised by haplo-diploid life cycles, and developing ovules are the organs in which the haploid anddiploid generations coexist. Recently it has been shown that hormones such as auxin ...
    • Ovule development, a new model for lateral organ formation 

      Roig Villanova, Irma; Colombo, Lucia; Cucinotta, Mara (2014)
      Article
      Open Access
      In spermatophytes the ovules upon fertilization give rise to the seeds. It is essential to understand the mechanisms that control ovule number and development as they ultimately determine the final number of seeds and, ...
    • Seed abscission and fruit dehiscence required for seed dispersal rely on similar genetic networks 

      Roig Villanova, Irma; Balanzà, Vicente; Di Marzo, Mauricio; Masiero, Simona; Colombo, Lucia (2016)
      Article
      Open Access
      Seed dispersal is an essential trait that enables colonization of newfavorable habitats, ensuring species survival. In plants with dehiscentfruits, such asArabidopsis, seed dispersal depends on two processes:the separation ...
