VRN-2 and ZCCT2 full-length proteins were expressed as GST fusion proteins in E. coli and purified through GST sepharose columns. The purified VRN-2 and ZCCT2 proteins were used to test the specificity of the VRN-2 antibody by Western blot analysis. A Western blot experiment showed that the VRN-2 antibody was able to differentiate VRN-2 from the ZCCT2 protein.
Plants with a winter growth habit flower earlier when exposed for several weeks to cold temperatures, a process called vernalization. The wheat vernalization gene VRN-2 is a dominant repressor of flowering that is down-regulated by vernalization. Loss of function of VRN-2, whether by natural mutations or deletions, results in spring lines, which do not require vernalization to flower.
