• Autophagy is required for strawberry fruit ripening 

      Sánchez-Sevilla, José F.; Botella-Mesa, Miguel Angel; Valpuesta-Fernandez, Victoriano; Sanchez-Vera, Victoria (Frontiers Media SA, 2021-08-27)
      Autophagy is a catabolic and recycling pathway that maintains cellular homeostasis under normal growth and stress conditions. Two major types of autophagy, microautophagy and macroautophagy, have been described in plants. ...
    • Characterizing the involvement of FaMADS9 in the regulation of strawberry fruit receptacle development 

      Vallarino, José G.; Merchante, Catharina; Sánchez-Sevilla, José F; De Luis Balaguer, Maria Angels; Pott, Delphine; [et al.] (Wiley Online Library, 2019-09-18)
      FaMADS9 is the strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa) gene that exhibits the highest homology to the tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) RIN gene. Transgenic lines were obtained in which FaMADS9 was silenced. The fruits of these lines ...
    • Gene expression atlas of fruit ripening and transcriptome assembly from RNA-seq data in octoploid strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) 

      Sánchez-Sevilla, José F; Vallarino, José G.; Osorio-Algar, Sonia; Bombarely, Aureliano; Posé, David; [et al.] (Springer Nature, 2017-10-23)
      RNA-seq has been used to perform global expression analysis of the achene and the receptacle at four stages of fruit ripening, and of the roots and leaves of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa). About 967 million reads and ...
    • The NAC transcription factor FaRIF controls fruit ripening in strawberry 

      Martín-Pizarro, Carmen; Vallarino, José G.; Osorio-Algar, Sonia; Meco, Victoriano; Urrutia, María; [et al.] (Oxford University Press, 2021-02-24)
      In contrast to climacteric fruits such as tomato, the knowledge on key regulatory genes controlling the ripening of straw- berry, a nonclimacteric fruit, is still limited. NAC transcription factors (TFs) mediate different ...
