The role of phytohormones in cotton fiber development

The role of phytohormones in cotton fiber development Since 1974, when Beasley and Ting discovered that fertilized ovules of cotton can be cultured in media supplemented with GA along with auxin, the effect of all types of phytohormones on fiber development has been widely studied. Many phytohormones, including GA, IAA, brassinosteroid (Br), ABA, ethylene (Et), and cytokinins (Ck), all have been demonstrated to play important roles during cotton fiber development. In recent years, the rapid development of genomic analysis and the accumulation of high-quality cotton ESTs allowed us to probe phytohormonal gene expression during fiber development. Many phytohormonal genes, including GA-, IAA-, ABA-, Br-, Et-, and Ck-related genes, participating in phytohormone biosynthesis pathways and signal transduction pathway accumulated in the process of cotton fiber development.
