Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is a major soybean pest throughout the soybean growing regions in the world, including the USA. Soybean PI 90763 is an important SCN resistance source. It is resistant to several SCN populations including races 2, 3 and 5. But its genetics of resistance is not well known. The objectives of this study were to: (1) confirm(More)
The enzyme 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGR; EC1.1.1.34) catalyzes the first committed step of isoprenoids biosynthesis in MVA pathway. Here we report for the first time the cloning and characterization of a full-length cDNA encoding HMGR (designated as CgHMGR, GenBank accession number EF206343) from hazel (Corylus avellana L. Gasaway), a(More)
A full-length cDNA encoding taxadiene synthase (designated as TmTXS), which catalyzes the first committed step in the Taxol biosynthetic pathway, was isolated from young leaves of Taxus media by rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). The full-length cDNA of TmTXS had a 2586 bp open reading frame (ORF) encoding a protein of 862 amino acid residues. The(More)
Gossypol, a type of plant defence sesquiterpenoid phytoalexin, is synthesized from the MEP (2C-methyl-D-erythritol 4-phosphate) and MVA (mevalonate) pathway in the isoprenoid biosynthetic system. The key step is the isomerization of IPP (isopentenyl diphosphate) to DMAPP (dimethylallyl diphosphate), which is catalysed by IPI (IPP isomerase; EC 5.3.3.2). A(More)
Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis on pooled data from multiple populations (pooled analysis) provides a means for evaluating, as a whole, evidence for existence of a QTL from different studies and examining differences in gene effect of a QTL among different populations. Objectives of this study were to: (1) develop a method for pooled analysis and(More)
A full-length cDNA encoding 10-deacetylbaccatin III-10-O-acetyl transferase (designated as TmDBAT), which catalyzes the acetylation of the C-10 hydroxyl group of the advanced metabolite 10-deacetylbaccatin III (10-DAB) to yield baccatin III, the immediate diterpenoid precursor of Taxol, was isolated from Taxus x media. Heterologous expression of TmDBAT in(More)
The REMI method was used to introduce the plasmid pV2 harboring the hygromycin B phosphotransferase (hph) gene controlled by the Aspergillus nidulans trpC promoter and the trpC terminator into a taxol-producing endophytic fungus BT2. REMI transformation yielded stable transformants capable of continuing to grow on PDA medium containing 125 mug mL(-1)(More)
We identified and characterized a mutant of soybean stachyose synthase gene controlling reduced stachyose content which benefit the soybean seed composition breeding program in the future. It has been shown that in soybean, increased sucrose and reduced raffinose family oligosaccharides would have a positive impact on the world’s feed industry by improving(More)
A full-length cDNA encoding 5-alpha-taxadienol-10-beta-hydroxylase (designated as Tm10BH), which catalyzes the second cytochrome P450-dependent hydroxylation step in the Taxol biosynthetic pathway, was isolated from young leaves of Taxus media by rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). The full-length cDNA of Tm10BH had a 1494 bp open reading frame (ORF)(More)
In these days, organization operation has changed from product operation to capability operation, and systematical capability management has been an important part of organization management, and it is important for systematical capability management to understand capability and its evolution mechanism correctly. So, based on system theory and fractal(More)
