In this study, gamma rays were used to irradiate embryogenic calli induced from cotyledon explants of Panax ginseng Meyer. After the embryogenic calli were irradiated, they were transferred to adventitious roots using an induction medium; next, mutated adventitious root (MAR) lines with a high frequency of adventitious root formations were selected. Two MAR(More)
Salt tolerance in soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is controlled by major quantitative trait loci (QTL) or single gene(s). Among soybean germplasm, wild soybean plant introduction PI 483463 was reported to have a single dominant gene for salt tolerance. The objective of this study was to genetically map the QTL in a recombinant inbred line (RIL) population(More)
In this study, we investigated differentially expressed genes between the original chrysanthemum cultivar ‘Argus’ with white flower color and its gamma-ray irradiated mutant ‘ARTI-purple’ with purple flower color. The expression levels of anthocyanin biosynthetic genes were not associated with anthocyanin accumulations of Argus and ARTI-purple. Expressed(More)
Ionizing radiation directly and indirectly affects gene expression within the plant genome. To access the antioxidant response of rice to different types of ionizing radiation, rice seeds were exposed to gamma-ray, cosmic-ray and ion beam radiation. Exposure to ionizing radiation dramatically decreased the shoot length in all plants but not the root length(More)
Ionizing radiation (IR) affects gene expression from plant genomes. To monitor the genome-wide transcriptional changes induced by three types of IR, we used the rice Affymetrix GeneChip microarray to identify genes that are up- or down-regulated by gamma rays (GAs), cosmic rays (CRs) and ion beams (IBs). The overall expression patterns in rice seedlings(More)
Plant physiological and biochemical processes are significantly affected by gamma irradiation stress. In addition, gamma-ray (GA) differentially affects gene expression across the whole genome. In this study, we identified radio marker genes (RMGs) responding only to GA stress compared with six abiotic stresses (chilling, cold, anoxia, heat, drought and(More)
Previous studies reported that omega-3 fatty acid and α-linolenic acid are important compounds that prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer in humans. Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] oil typically contains ~8 % α-linolenic acid (ALA). Elevated (~15 %) ALA content in seed oil is a trait of wild soybeans (G. soja Sieb. and Zucc.). Decreasing the ratio of(More)
In Korea, chrysanthemum is the second-most popular cutflower next to roses and can be divided into two main groups: spray and standard types according to their usage. The standard-type chrysanthemums are often used for condolence, and the important traits of this type include lack of branching and a long flowering period. This study was performed to compare(More)
The QTLs controlling alpha-linolenic acid concentration from wild soybean were mapped on nine soybean chromosomes with various phenotypic variations. New QTLs for alpha-linolenic acid were detected in wild soybean. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid desired in human and animal diets. Some wild soybean (Glycine soja) genotypes are(More)
This study investigated the alteration of seed storage proteins in soybean mutants induced by γ-irradiation. Five soybean cultivars and four landraces were irradiated with 250 Gy of γ rays to induce variability. The seed storage protein profiles of 414 genetic fixed mutants (M(12)-M(20)) having excellent agricultural traits were analyzed by SDS-PAGE. Among(More)
