DNA variation in the wild plant Arabidopsis thaliana revealed by amplified fragment length polymorphism analysis.
To investigate the level and pattern of DNA variation of Arabidopsis thaliana at the entire genome level, AFLP analysis was conducted for 38 ecotypes distributed throughout the world. Ten pairs ofExpand

Nucleotide polymorphism in the acidic chitinase locus (ChiA) region of the wild plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
To investigate DNA variation in natural plant populations, a 1.8-kb region of the acidic chitinase locus (ChiA)was analyzed for 17 ecotypes of Arabidopsis thaliana sampled worldwide and 3 ArabisExpand

Patterns of codon usage bias in three dicot and four monocot plant species.
Codon usage in nuclear genes of four monocot and three dicot species was analyzed to find general patterns in codon choice of plant species. Codon bias was correlated with GC content at the thirdExpand

DNA polymorphism at the ACAULIS5 locus of the wild plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
Nucleotide variation in the ACL5 gene region, which encodes spermine synthase, was analyzed for 21 Arabidopsis thaliana ecotypes and one accession of Arabis gemmifera. In A. thaliana, dimorphism wasExpand

Aurora kinase is required for chromosome segregation in tobacco BY-2 cells.
Post-translational modifications of core histone tails play crucial roles in chromatin structure and function. Although phosphorylation of Ser10 and Ser28 (H3S10ph and H3S28ph) of histone H3 isExpand

DNA polymorphism at the cytosolic phosphoglucose isomerase (PgiC) locus of the wild plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
DNA variation in a 4.7-kb region of the cytosolic phosphoglucose isomerase (PgiC) locus was investigated for 21 ecotypes of Arabidopsis thaliana. The estimated nucleotide diversity was 0.0038, whichExpand

Intra- and interspecific DNA variation and codon bias of the alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) locus in Arabis and Arabidopsis species.
Sequence variation at the alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) locus was analyzed for six species each of the genera Arabis and Arabidopsis. Phylogenetic analysis showed that investigated species were groupedExpand
