In vitro induction of tetraploid plants from diploid Zizyphus jujuba Mill. cv. Zhanhua
Tetraploid plants of Zizyphus jujuba Mill. cv. Zhanhua were obtained with in vitro colchicine treatment. Shoot tips from in vitro-grown plants were treated with five different concentrations ofExpand
Cloning of an H+-PPase gene from Thellungiella halophila and its heterologous expression to improve tobacco salt tolerance.
An H(+)-pyrophosphatase (PPase) gene named TsVP involved in basic biochemical and physiological mechanisms was cloned from Thellungiella halophila. The deduced translation product has similarExpand
Proteomic analysis of roots growth and metabolic changes under phosphorus deficit in maize (Zea mays L.) plants
Phosphorus (P) deficiency is a major limitation for plant growth and development. Plants can respond defensively to this stress, modifying their metabolic pathways and root morphology, and thisExpand
Enhanced expression of phospholipase C 1 (ZmPLC1) improves drought tolerance in transgenic maize
Phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (PI-PLC) plays an important role in a variety of physiological processes in plants, including drought tolerance. It has been reported that the ZmPLC1Expand
Influence of water stress on endogenous hormone contents and cell damage of maize seedlings.
Phytohormones play critical roles in regulating plant responses to stress. We investigated the effects of water stress induced by adding 12% (w/v) polyethylene glycol to the root medium on the levelsExpand
Comparative proteome analyses of phosphorus responses in maize (Zea mays L.) roots of wild-type and a low-P-tolerant mutant reveal root characteristics associated with phosphorus efficiency.
SUMMARY Low phosphorus (P) availability is a major limitation for plant growth. To better understand the molecular mechanism of P efficiency in maize, comparative proteome analyses were performed onExpand
Optimization of in vitro multiple shoot clump induction and plantlet regeneration of Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis)
An efficient protocol for Kentucky bluegrass (Poa  pratensis L.) in vitro culture was established using shoot apices of seedlings as explants. The optimal procedure of this protocol for majority ofExpand
Increase of glycinebetaine synthesis improves drought tolerance in cotton
The tolerance to drought stress of the homozygous transgenic cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) plants with enhanced glycinebetaine (GB) accumulation was investigated at three development stages. AmongExpand
Over-expression of TsCBF1 gene confers improved drought tolerance in transgenic maize
The DREB/CBF transcription factors play important roles during low temperature, drought, and high-salt stress in higher plants. In this paper, we transferred TsCBF1 gene from a dicotyledonousExpand
Heterologous expression of vacuolar H+-PPase enhances the electrochemical gradient across the vacuolar membrane and improves tobacco cell salt tolerance
Summary.The vacuolar H+-translocating inorganic pyrophosphatase (H+-PPase) uses pyrophosphate as substrate to generate the proton electrochemical gradient across the vacuolar membrane to acidifyExpand
