Bacterial leaf streak (BLS) caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc) is an important disease of rice, which is responsible for the economic losses worldwide. Functional investigation of differentially expressed protein genes (DEPGs) from rice (Oryza sativa L.) upon Xoc infection provides insight into the molecular mechanism of rice–Xoc interactions.(More)
Bacterial leaf streak of rice (BLS) caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc) is a widely-spread disease in the main rice-producing areas of the world. Investigating the genes that play roles in rice–Xoc interactions helps us to understand the defense signaling pathway in rice. Here we report a differentially expressed protein gene (DEPG1), which(More)
Domain of unknown function 1644 (DUF1644) is a highly conserved amino acid sequence motif present only in plants. Analysis of expression data of the family of DUF1644-containing genes indicated that they may regulate responses to abiotic stress in rice. Here we present our discovery of the role of OsSIDP366, a member of the DUF1644 gene family, in response(More)
Overexpression of a new stress-repressive gene OsDSR2 in rice resulted in enhanced sensitivity to ABA-dependent salt and simulated drought stresses by downregulating the expression of multiple stress-responsive genes. Domain of Unknown Function 966 (DUF966) gene family was found in the protein family database, which consisted of seven genes in rice. The(More)
Salt stress has adverse effects on the growth and production of rice crops. In this study, we isolated and characterized SIDP361, which encodes a DUF1644 family protein. This gene was expressed in various rice tissues and was induced by high salt (200 mM NaCl), dehydration, and abscisic acid (100 µM ABA) treatments. Stable expression of SIDP361-GFP in rice(More)
In this paper, we characterized a differentially expressed receptor-like cytoplasmic kinase XCRK, which confers resistance to bacterial leaf streak (BLS). We analyzed the tissue expression of XCRK and showed that XCRK was widely expressed in multiple rice (Oryza sativa) organs, including internodes, roots, leaves and flowers. In addition, the expression of(More)
