ジャスモン酸は病害虫、傷害などの環境ストレス応答におけるシグナル伝達物質として機能するだけでなく、花びらが脱離するという植物の成長や老化を制御する上でも重要な植物ホルモンである。ジャスモン酸の合成ができない突然変異体では花びらの脱離が遅れることは知られていましたが、その仕組みは不明でした。本研究では、この突然変異体を用いたトランスクリプトーム解析を行い、鍵となる転写因子をコードするNAC DOMAIN CONTAINING PROTRIN102 (NAC102)を同定しました。このNAC102遺伝子は花びらの根元で限定的に発現します。さらに、NAC転写因子の直接標的を網羅的に同定し、オートファジーを制御するAUTOPHAGY (ATG)遺伝子群があることを見出しました。このATG遺伝子の働きにより、オートファジーが花びらの根元で限定的に促進されて、花びらの脱離が起こることがわかりました。これらの知見によって、花びらが散る仕組みの一端が明らかになりました。
