During the past two years, significant progress has been made towards understanding the molecular basis of how multiple pathways regulating the floral transition are integrated. The transcriptional regulation of several genes, the floral meristem identity gene LEAFY and the 'flowering-time' genes FLOWERING LOCUS T and SUPPRESSOR OF OVEREXPRESSION OF CO 1 (also known as AGAMOUS-LIKE 20), is a point at which multiple pathways that promote flowering are integrated.
