Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Gibberellin (GA) 20-oxidase [gibberellin, 2-oxoglutarate:oxygen oxidoreductase (20-hydroxylating, oxidizing) EC 1.14.11.-]
Biological function
GA 20-oxidase 1 is a key enzyme involved in gibberellin (GA) biosynthesis.

GAs consist of a large family of tetracyclic diterpenoids and are associated with a number of plant growth and developmental processes such as seed germination, stem elongation, flowering and fruit development.

Inactivation of gibberellin 20-oxidase decreases active gibberellin levels and creates the so-called semi-dwarf phenotype. Over-expression of the gene results in significantly longer plants.
