To investigate the genetic background for aluminum (Al) tolerance in rice, a recombinant inbred (RI) population, derived from a cross between an Al-sensitive lowland indica rice variety IR1552 and an Al-tolerant upland japonica rice variety Azucena, was used in culture solution. A molecular linkage map, together with 104 amplified fragment length(More)
To identify the genetic background of seminal root length under different water-supply conditions, a recombinant inbred (RI) population consisting of 150 lines, derived from a cross between an indica lowland rice, IR1552, and a tropical japonica upland rice, Azucena, was used in both solution culture (lowland condition) and paper culture (upland condition).(More)
Ferrous iron (Fe2+) toxicity is a major disorder in rice prod uction on acid, flooded soils. Rice ( Oryza sativa L.) genotypes differ widely in tolerance to Fe2+ toxicity, which makes it possible to bre ed more tolerant rice varieties. Tissue tolerance to higher iron concentrations in plants has been considered to be important to Fe2+ tolerance in ri ce.(More)
A double-haploid (DH) population and a recombinant inbred (RI) line population, derived from a cross between a tropical japonica variety, Azucena, as male parent and two indica varieties, IR64 and IR1552, as female parents respectively, were used in both field and pot experiments for detecting QTLs and epistasis for rice panicle number in different genetic(More)
In a Phase 1 study, 15 healthy subjects were randomized to receive a 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) and 15 to receive a 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (23vPS). Antibody responses were measured immediately before and approximately one month after vaccination. Serotype-specific antibodies were measured using an enzyme-linked(More)
This technical note concerns the deterministic sampling points construction strategy for unscented Kalman filter (UKF) and cubature Kalman filter (CKF). From the numerical-integration viewpoint, a new deterministic sampling points set is derived by orthogonal transformation on the cubature points. By embedding these points into the UKF framework, a modified(More)
Eighty-four selected lines from a recombinant inbred (RI) line population of 284 lines derived from a cross between the indica varieties IR20 and IR55178-3B-9-3 were used in a hydroponic culture experiment with sufficient P supply (10 mg P L−1) and P-deficient stress (0.05 mg P L−1). After 2 weeks, the activity of acid phosphatase (AAP) in roots of each(More)
The wild progenitor species (Oryza rufipogon) of Asian cultivated rice (O. sativa L.) is located in Dongxiang county, China which is considered its the northernmost range worldwide. Nine ex situ and three in situ populations of the Dongxiang wild rice (DXWR) and four groups of modern cultivars were genotyped using 21 SSR markers for study of population(More)
A doubled haploid (DH)population consisting of 135 lines, derived from an indica (IR64) and a japonica (Azucena) rice with a similar apparent amylose content (AAC), was used to investigate the genetic factors affecting cooking and eating quality of rice. AAC,gelatinization temperature (GT), gel consistency (GC) and six starch pasting viscosity parameters(More)
An AREB gene, designated as AhAREB1, was cloned from peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.). The gene contains a 1 338-bp open reading frame that encodes a putative protein of 445 amino acids. The corresponding genomic DNA containing four exons and three introns was isolated and analyzed. An upstream 1 060-bp DNA promoter fragment of the AhAREB1 gene was also(More)
