Abstract

The salinity of soil severely restricts the rate of land use and crop productivity. Plants have developed complex mechanisms, including osmotic adjustment, to resist salt stress. Here, we report that the MdALMT14 gene in the apple is a homolog of the Arabidopsis malate acid transporter gene ...

Abstract

A genome-wide association study (GWA study, or GWAS), also known as whole genome association study (WGA study, or WGAS), is an observational study of a genome-wide set of genetic variants in different individuals to see if any variant is associated with a trait. This paper discusses the application ...

Abstract

To develop a methodology that leads to a reduction in the cost for obtaining bioproducts, we tried to extract sugars, the major products of photosynthesis, nondestructively from living plants. Our strategy was (1) to increase sugar levels in the extracellular space (apoplast) of the leaves by...

Abstract

Forward genetic analysis, widely used to find new gene functions, benefits from the availability of mutants. At present, based on Agrobacterium-mediated plant transformation technology, many transfer (T)-DNA transformants have been created. However, cloning their T-DNA insertion sites, which...

Abstract

Alkaline stress is a major form of abiotic stress that severely inhibits plant growth and development, thus restricting crop productivity. However, little is known about how plants respond to alkali. In this study, a slow-type anion channel homolog 3 gene, GsSLAH3, was isolated and functionally...

Abstract

Post-translational modifiers such as the small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) peptide act as fast and reversible protein regulators. Functional characterization of the sumoylation machinery has determined the key regulatory role that SUMO plays in plant development. Unlike components of the SUMO...

Abstract

Background and Aims: Excess selenium (Se) is toxic to plants, but relatively little is known about the regulatory mechanism of plant Se tolerance. This study explored the role of the TPS22 gene in Se tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana. Methods: Arabidopsis wild type and XVE mutant seeds were grown...

Abstract

Background and Aims: Interstitial telomeric repeat (ITR) sites, consisting of tandem repeats of telomeric motifs localized at intrachromosomal sites, have been reported in a few unrelated organisms including plants. However, the causes for the occurrence of ITRs outside of the chromosomal termini...

Abstract

Cytokinin (CK) is one of key phytohormones for de-differentiation and de novo organogenesis in plants. During the CK-mediated organogenesis not only genes in CK homeostasis, perception and signal transduction, but also factors regulating basic transcription, splicing and chromatin remodeling...

Abstract

The Arabidopsis thaliana Fasciclin like arabinogalactan protein 4 (FLA4) locus is required for normal root growth in a linear genetic pathway with the FEI1 and FEI2 loci coding for receptor-like kinases. The two Fas1 domains of FLA4 are conserved among angiosperms but only the C-terminal Fas1...
