High impact information on CYP711A1

  • Repression of bud outgrowth requires MAX1-dependent flavonoid gene expression [1].
  • Because MAX1 is implicated in synthesis of the carotenoid-derived branch regulator(s) from the root, it likely links long-distance signaling with local control of bud outgrowth [1].
  • We speculate that MAX1 could repress axillary bud outgrowth via regulating flavonoid-dependent auxin retention in the bud and underlying stem [1].
  • We identify MAX1 as a member of the cytochrome P450 family with high similarity to mammalian Thromboxane A2 synthase [2].


  1. MAX1, a regulator of the flavonoid pathway, controls vegetative axillary bud outgrowth in Arabidopsis. Lazar, G., Goodman, H.M. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. (2006) [Pubmed]
  2. MAX1 encodes a cytochrome P450 family member that acts downstream of MAX3/4 to produce a carotenoid-derived branch-inhibiting hormone. Booker, J., Sieberer, T., Wright, W., Williamson, L., Willett, B., Stirnberg, P., Turnbull, C., Srinivasan, M., Goddard, P., Leyser, O. Dev.
