Development of enhancer trap lines for functional analysis of the rice genome.
Enhancer trapping has provided a powerful strategy for identifying novel genes and regulatory elements. In this study, we adopted an enhancer trap system, consisting of the GAL4/VP16-UAS elementsExpand

RID1, encoding a Cys2/His2-type zinc finger transcription factor, acts as a master switch from vegetative to floral development in rice
Transition from the vegetative phase to reproductive phase is a crucial process in the life cycle of higher plants. Although the molecular mechanisms of flowering regulation have been extensivelyExpand

High-level hemicellulosic arabinose predominately affects lignocellulose crystallinity for genetically enhancing both plant lodging resistance and biomass enzymatic digestibility in rice mutants.
Rice is a major food crop with enormous biomass residue for biofuels. As plant cell wall recalcitrance basically decides a costly biomass process, genetic modification of plant cell walls has beenExpand

Rice APOPTOSIS INHIBITOR5 Coupled with Two DEAD-Box Adenosine 5′-Triphosphate-Dependent RNA Helicases Regulates Tapetum Degeneration[W][OA]
This study examines the role of API5, a homolog of animal antiapoptosis proteins, in the degeneration of the tapetum during the formation of male gametophytes in rice. It describes a previouslyExpand

Replication Protein A (RPA1a) Is Required for Meiotic and Somatic DNA Repair But Is Dispensable for DNA Replication and Homologous Recombination in Rice1[C][W]
Replication protein A (RPA), a highly conserved single-stranded DNA-binding protein in eukaryotes, is a stable complex comprising three subunits termed RPA1, RPA2, and RPA3. RPA is required forExpand
