Accurate normalization of gene expression with qRT-PCR depends on the use of appropriate reference genes (RGs) for the species under a given set of experimental conditions. Multiple RGs for gene expression analysis of soybean exposed to heavy metal stress treatment have not been reported in the literature. In this study, we evaluated the expression(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and insertions-deletions (InDels) are valuable molecular markers for genomics and genetics studies and molecular breeding. The advent of next-generation sequencing techniques has enabled researchers to approach high-throughput and cost-effective SNP and InDel discovery on a genomic scale. In this report, 36 common bean(More)
BACKGROUND Common bacterial blight (CBB), incited by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli (Xap), is a major yield-limiting factor of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) production around the world. Host resistance is practically the most effective and environmentally-sound approach to control CBB. Unlike conventional QTL discovery strategies, in which(More)
Brown adipose tissue (BAT) functions to dissipate energy in response to cold exposure or overfeeding. Counteracting obesity has been extensively considered as a promising target. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are an important class of pervasive genes involved in a variety of biological functions. However, the potential biological functions of lncRNAs during(More)
Soybean mutant lines that differ in 11S glycinin and 7S β-conglycinin seed storage protein subunit compositions were developed. These proteins have significant influence on tofu quality. The molecular mechanisms underlying the mutant lines are unknown. In this study, gene-specific markers for five of the glycinin genes (Gy1 to Gy5) were developed using(More)
Common bacterial blight (CBB), caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli (Xap), is a major yield-limiting factor of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) production around the world. Two major CBB-resistant quantitative trait loci (QTL), linked to the sequence characterized amplified region markers BC420 and SU91, are located at chromosomes 6 and 8,(More)
This study describes the generation and test of a genetic resource suited to identify determinants of cell biological traits in plants. The use of quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping for a better genetic understanding of cell biological traits is still at an early stage, even for biotechnologically important cell properties, such as the dimensions of(More)
Resistance to common bacterial blight, caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli, in Phaseolus vulgaris is conditioned by several loci on different chromosomes. Previous studies with OAC-Rex, a CBB-resistant, white bean variety of Mesoamerican origin, identified two resistance loci associated with the molecular markers Pv-CTT001 and SU91, on chromosome(More)
