AbstractIn the common bean short-day (SD) plant, seasonal flowering is a crucial aspect of maximizing reproductive fitness. Expansion to higher latitudes or changes in day length has been accompanied by earlier flowering under long-day (LD) and a reduction in photoperiod responsiveness that enables plants to anticipate approaching seasonal variation in the surrounding environment. In the model species Arabidopsis thaliana, flowering time is determined by day-length¿dependent induction of the FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) gene, which encodes a floral-inductive mobile signal, and GIGANTEA (GI) gene acting upstream of FT. The characterization of common bean homologues of Arabidopsis photoperiodic flowering pathway genes is reported with the end goal of accelerating common bean breeding by understanding the genetic basis of day-length adaptation.
