Abstract

The present invention relates to a method for modulating plant developmental processes. In particular, the present invention relates to a method for inhibiting or stimulating germination, elongation growth and flowering time in plants by modulating the activity of genes/proteins that function downstream of the gibberellic acid (GA) signal transduction pathway. The present invention also relates to plants obtained by this method, to nucleic acids used in this method, as well as to plant cells and plants comprising the same.
