WRKY transcription factor genes (TFs) play important roles in response to various abiotic stresses. However, the roles of the chrysanthemum WRKY genes in abiotic stress response remain obscure. In this study, we functionally characterized a novel WRKY gene, DgWRKY3, from chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflorum). Its expression in the chrysanthemum was(More)
Plant-specific WRKY transcription factors (TFs) are involved in stress responses such as cold, high salinity, or drought as well as abscisic acid (ABA) signaling. However, their roles in abiotic stresses are still not well known in chrysanthemum. Here, we isolated a novel WRKY gene, DgWRKY1, from chrysanthemum (Dendranthema grandiflorum). DgWRKY1 contains(More)
The plant-specific NAC (for NAM, ATAF1, 2 and CUC2) transcription factors (TFs) have been implicated in different cellular processes involved in stress responses such as cold, high salinity or drought as well as abscisic acid (ABA) signalling. However, the roles of the chrysanthemum NAC TF genes in plant stress responses are still unclear. A full-length(More)
A drought stress-responsive Cys2/His2-type zinc finger protein gene DgZFP3 was previously isolated (Liu et al., Afr J Biotechnol 11:7781–7788, 2012b) from chrysanthemum. To assess roles of DgZFP3 in plant drought stress responses, we performed gain-of-function experiment. The DgZFP3-overexpression tobacco plants showed significant drought tolerance over the(More)
Salt stress has some remarkable influence on chrysanthemum growth and productivity. To understand the molecular mechanisms associated with salt stress and identify genes of potential importance in cultivated chrysanthemum, we carried out transcriptome sequencing of chrysanthemum. Two cDNA libraries were generated from the control and salt-treated samples(More)
Phormium tenax is a kind of drought resistant garden plant with its rich and colorful leaves. To clarify the molecular mechanism of drought resistance in Phormium tenax, transcriptome was sequenced by the Illumina sequencing technology under normal and drought stress, respectively. A large number of contigs, transcripts and unigenes were obtained. Among(More)
DgNAC1, a transcription factor of chrysanthemum, was functionally verified to confer salt stress responses by regulating stress-responsive genes. NAC transcription factors play effective roles in resistance to different abiotic stresses, and overexpressions of NAC TFs in Arabidopsis have been proved to be conducive in improving salinity tolerance. However,(More)
Plant vacuolar Na(+)/H(+) antiporter genes play significant roles in salt tolerance. However, the roles of the chrysanthemum vacuolar Na(+)/H(+) antiporter genes in salt stress response remain obscure. In this study, we isolated and characterized a novel vacuolar Na(+)/H(+) antiporter gene DgNHX1 from chrysanthemum. The DgNHX1 sequence contained 1920 bp(More)
WRKY transcription factors play important roles in plant growth development, resistance and substance metabolism regulation. However, the exact function of the response to salt stress in plants with specific WRKY transcription factors remains unclear. In this research, we isolated a new WRKY transcription factor DgWRKY5 from chrysanthemum. DgWRKY5 contains(More)
In order to understand the effects of stem numbers per ground area on the quality of standard cut Chrysanthemum morifolium, an experiment with different cultivars, different stem numbers per plant, different planting densities, and different planting dates was conducted in a greenhouse in Shanghai in 2005 and 2006. The effects of stem numbers per ground(More)
