Abstract

Polycarpic perennials maintain vegetative growth after flowering.PERPETUAL FLOWERING 1(PEP1), the orthologue ofFLOWERING LOCUS C(FLC) inArabis alpinaregulates flowering and contributes to polycarpy in a vernalisation-dependent pathway.pep1mutants do not require vernalisation to flower and have reduced return to vegetative growth as all of their axillary branches become reproductive. To identify additional genes that regulate flowering and contribute to perennial traits we performed an enhancer screen ofpep1. Using mapping-by-sequencing, we cloned a mutant (enhancer of pep1-055,eop055), performed transcriptome analysis and physiologically characterised the role it plays on perennial traits in an introgression line carrying theeop055mutation and a functionalPEP1wild-type allele. eop055flowers earlier thanpep1and carries a lesion in theA. alpinaorthologue of theAPETALA2(AP2)-like gene,TARGET OF EAT2(AaTOE2). AaTOE2 is a floral repressor and acts upstream of SQUAMOSA PROMOTER-BINDING PROTEIN-LIKE 5 (AaSPL5). In the wild-type background, which requires cold treatment to flower, AaTOE2 regulates the age-dependent response to vernalisation. In addition, AaTOE2 ensures the maintenance of vegetative growth by delaying axillary meristem initiation and repressing flowering of axillary buds before and during cold exposure. We conclude that AaTOE2 is instrumental in fine tuning different developmental traits in the perennial life cycle ofA. alpina.
