OrganismArabidopsis thaliana
Aging PhenotypeN/A
Allele TypeOverexpression
DescriptionPlants overexpressing FPS1S showed a cell death/senescence-like phenotype and grew less vigorously than wild-type plants (Masferrer et al., 2002).
Gene FunctionFarnesyl diphosphate synthase.
Other PhenotypesIn leaves of plants with increased FPS activity, the expression of the senescence activated gene SAG12 was prematurely induced.
