Cichorium endivia is a leafy crop closely related to Lactuca sativa and comprises two major botanical varieties characterized by a high degree of intraspecific morphological variation: the broad-leaved escarole and the curly-leaved endive. These features make C. endivia an excellent crop model to investigate the relationship between photosynthesis and leaf shape. Leaf transcriptome profiling, cluster analysis, and construction of gene co-expression networks, together with physiological and biochemical characterization, identified transcription factors differentially expressed in broad vs. curly leaves, and developmental genes associated to the photosynthetic regulatory network as potential novel actors in the interplay between leaf development and photosynthesis.
