Abstract

Modulation of the amount or location of vascular tissue in a plant can be used to produce plants or plant-derived products with altered mechanical properties to suit a variety of industrial applications, such as biofuel or paper production. The present invention provides methods for modification of the amount of vascular tissue and/or location of the vascular tissue of plants or plant parts by modification of expression in plants of nucleic acid sequences encoding TARGET OF MONOPTEROS (TMO5), TMO5-like alone, or in combination with LONESOME HIGHWAY (LHW). The invention also provides genetically transformed plants or plant parts with altered vascular patterning compared to corresponding non-transformed wild type plants or plant parts, wherein plant vascular development is altered by transformation with a nucleic acid encoding TMO5 or TMO5-like transcription factors, whether alone, or in combination with LHW.
