MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNAs that regulate genes involved in various aspects of plant development, but their presence and expression patterns in the male gametophytes of gymnosperms have not yet been established. Therefore, this study identified and compared the expression patterns of conserved miRNAs from two stages of the male gametophyte of loblolly(More)
Solubilities of several hydrophobic organic substances (paradichlorobenzene, endrin, naphthalene, and dibutyl phthalate) in aqueous solutions containing up to 0.10 mole fraction of common alcohols and ketones, were measured by gas chromatography. The solubilities are significantly increased by the alcohols and ketones. The results are interpreted in terms(More)
MiRNAs are mostly known for their expressions in sporophytic (diploid) tissues from various angiosperms, and only limited information is available on those expressed in gametophytic (haploid) tissues. Even more limited information is available for gymnosperms, particularly those that are expressed in gametophytic tissues. Homology search of the loblolly(More)
