Transcription Factors in the Pineapple Genome
Transcription factors (TFs) and transcription coregulators (TCs) play important roles in regulating plant growth and development, physiological and metabolic processes, and responses to biotic and abiotic stresses. Genome-wide identification of TFs and TCs was performed in pineapple. The tissue-specific and diurnal expression of pineapple TFs and TCs was characterized via global transcriptomic analysis. A set of diurnal cycling TFs and TCs was identified using time-course gene expression analysis. The resources provide important information for studying developmental biology, stress physiology, and disease resistance in pineapple. The resources also provide essential information for understanding the circadian regulation of crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) in pineapple.
