Abstract

As early as in 1936, the comprehensive studies of flowering led M.Kh. Chailakhyan to the concept of florigen, a hormonal floral stimulus, and let him establish several characteristics of this stimulus. These studies set up for many years the main avenues for research into the processes that control plant flowering, and the notion of florigen became universally accepted by scientists worldwide. The present-day evidence of genetic control of plant flowering supports the idea that florigen participates in floral signal transduction. The recent study of arabidopsis plants led the authors to conclusion that the immediate products of the gene FLOWERING LOCUS I, its mRNA and/or protein, move from an induced leaf into the shoot apex and evoke flowering therein.
