Celery is a vital vegetable belonging to the Apiaceae family. The leaves of celery are its main edible part with high nutritional value. Hormone signaling plays diverse and critical roles in controlling plant growth and development. However, the molecular mechanism of hormone regulating growth and development in celery leaves has not been investigated. Here, we aimed to understand the molecular functions of genes related to hormone metabolism in celery leaf growth and development. A total of 77 hormone-related differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified from the transcriptome of celery leaves at three development stages. The roles and interactions of DEGs in the growth and development of celery leaves were discussed. The contents of multiple hormones (IAA, ZR, ABA, BR, GA3, and MeJA) in celery leaf development were also detected. The changes of endogenous hormone level during the development of celery leaves could be regulated by the expressions of hormone-related genes. Our results indicated that the plant hormones had a complex regulatory mechanism for the growth of celery leaves. Our current findings will provide potential valuable references for the future research on celery leaf development.

A systemic non-inflammatory arteriopathy primarily of middle-aged females characterized by the association of livedo reticularis, multiple thrombotic CEREBRAL INFARCTION; CORONARY DISEASE, and HYPERTENSION. Elevation of antiphospholipid antibody titers (see also ANTIPHOSPHOLIPID SYNDROME), cardiac valvulopathy, ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; SEIZURES; DEMENTIA; and chronic ischemia of the extremities may also occur. Pathologic examination of affected arteries reveals non-inflammatory adventitial fibrosis, thrombosis, and changes in the media.

Class I human histocompatibility (HLA) antigens encoded by a small cluster of structural genes at the C locus on chromosome 6. They have significantly lower immunogenicity than the HLA-A and -B determinants and are therefore of minor importance in donor/recipient crossmatching. Their primary role is their high-risk association with certain disease manifestations (e.g., spondylarthritis, psoriasis, multiple myeloma).
A tumor suppressor gene (GENES, TUMOR SUPPRESSOR) located on human chromosome 13 at locus 13q12.3. Mutations in this gene predispose humans to breast and ovarian cancer. It encodes a large, nuclear protein that is an essential component of DNA repair pathways, suppressing the formation of gross chromosomal rearrangements. (from Genes Dev 2000;14(11):1400-6)
Genes that cause the epigenotype (i.e., the interrelated developmental pathways through which the adult organism is realized) to switch to an alternate cell lineage-related pathway. Switch complexes control the expression of normal functional development as well as oncogenic transformation.
