Building roots in a changing environment: implications for root longevity
Root turnover is important to the global carbon budget as well as to nutrient cycling in ecosystems and to the success of individual plants. Our ability to predict the effects of environmental changeExpand

The high-quality draft genome of peach (Prunus persica) identifies unique patterns of genetic diversity, domestication and genome evolution
Rosaceae is the most important fruit-producing clade, and its key commercially relevant genera (Fragaria, Rosa, Rubus and Prunus) show broadly diverse growth habits, fruit types and compact diploidExpand

Hdac3 is essential for the maintenance of chromatin structure and genome stability.
Hdac3 is essential for efficient DNA replication and DNA damage control. Deletion of Hdac3 impaired DNA repair and greatly reduced chromatin compaction and heterochromatin content. These defectsExpand

Genotyping by Sequencing for SNP-Based Linkage Map Construction and QTL Analysis of Chilling Requirement and Bloom Date in Peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch]
Low-cost, high throughput genotyping methods are crucial to marker discovery and marker-assisted breeding efforts, but have not been available for many ‘specialty crops’ such as fruit and nut trees.Expand

A genome-wide analysis of MADS-box genes in peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch]
BackgroundMADS-box genes encode a family of eukaryotic transcription factors distinguished by the presence of a highly-conserved ~58 amino acid DNA-binding and dimerization domain (the MADS-box). TheExpand

HDAC3 is essential for DNA replication in hematopoietic progenitor cells.
Histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3) contributes to the regulation of gene expression, chromatin structure, and genomic stability. Because HDAC3 associates with oncoproteins that drive leukemia andExpand

Inhibition of Histone Deacetylase 3 Causes Replication Stress in Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma
Given the fundamental roles of histone deacetylases (HDACs) in the regulation of DNA repair, replication, transcription and chromatin structure, it is fitting that therapies targeting HDAC activitiesExpand

Transcriptional Responses in Root and Leaf of Prunus persica under Drought Stress Using RNA Sequencing
Prunus persica L. Batsch, or peach, is one of the most important crops and it is widely established in irrigated arid and semi-arid regions. However, due to variations in the climate and theExpand

Differential expression of a β-1,4-endoglucanase induced by diet change in the foliar nematode Aphelenchoides fragariae.
We identified and characterized a β-1,4-endoglucanase, Afr-ENG-1, in the foliar nematode Aphelenchoides fragariae that is differentially expressed when the nematode feeds on fungi or plants. WhenExpand

Detoxification-related gene expression accompanies anhydrobiosis in the foliar nematode (Aphelenchoides fragariae)
Abstract The foliar nematode (Aphelenchoides fragariae) is a quarantined pest that infects a broad range of herbaceous and woody plants. Previous work has demonstrated its remarkable ability toExpand
