Floral induction in mango: Physiological, biochemical and molecular basis
Author(s): Dhiru Kumar Tiwari, VB Patel and AK Pandey
Abstract: Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is one of the oldest and most important fruit tree grown in many tropical and subtropical regions. Flowering is the first of several events that set the stage for mango production each year. It also influences the quality and quantity of fruits. Floral induction processin mango occurs before the onset of the coolest months of the year. Temperature, florigenic promoter, inhibitors, auxin, cytokinin, gibberellin, carbohydrates, amino acids, phenols, enzymes and genetic factors play important role in the floral induction of mango. Mango flowering involves hormonal regulation of shoot initiation and induction events resulting in reproductive shoot formation. A prospective may be made, if the Arabidopsis genes (Constans and floral signaling gene, FT) are inserted and expressed in mango in order to explain the requirement for such a small amount of signal to induce flowering. This advancement may be milestone in the floral induction of mango.
