Mutated genes

Locus name Alias Hormone Mutated site Paper description
AT5G16260 ELF9 gibberellin Encodes a RNA binding protein ELF9 (EARLY FLOWERING9). Loss of ELF9 function in the Wassilewskija ecotype causes early flowering in short days. ELF9 reduces SOC1 (SUPPRESSOR OF OVEREXPRESSION OF CO1) transcript levels, possibly via nonsense-mediated mRNA decay.
