Waxy maize (Zea mays L. var. certaina Kulesh), with many excellent characters in terms of starch composition and economic value, has grown in China for a long history and its production has increased dramatically in recent decades. However, the evolution and origin of waxy maize still remains unclear. We studied the genetic diversity of Chinese waxy maize(More)
Phenols are toxic, environmentally persistent products of the chemical industry that are capable of bioaccumulation and biomagnifications in the food chain. Little is known of how plants respond to this compound. To understand the transcriptional changes under phenol, microarray experiments on Arabidopsis thaliana were performed. Microarray results revealed(More)
Applying the genomic library construction strategy and colony screening, a new aroA gene encoding 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase has been identified, cloned and overexpressed in Escherichia coli, and the enzyme was purified to homogeneity. Kinetic analysis of the AroA P.fluorescens indicated that the full-length enzyme exhibits 10-fold(More)
