Low-temperature (LT) stress is one of the major limiting factors in cereal production in cold high-altitude mountainous areas of Iran where cereals are exposed to variable periods of temperatures in the vernalization range during the autumn season. Cereals regulate their development through adaptive mechanisms that are responsive to low but nonfreezing(More)
Drought is one of the major factors limiting the yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) particularly during grain filling. Under terminal drought condition, remobilization of pre-stored carbohydrates in wheat stem to grain has a major contribution in yield. To determine the molecular mechanism of stem reserve utilization under drought condition, we compared(More)
Rice (Oryza sativa L. cv. IR64) was grown in split-root systems to analyze long-distance drought signaling within root systems. This in turn underpins how root systems in heterogeneous soils adapt to drought. The approach was to compare four root tissues: (1) fully watered; (2) fully droughted and split-root systems where (3) one-half was watered and (4)(More)
Infection of Mexican lime trees (Citrus aurantifolia L.) with the specialized bacterium "CandidatusPhytoplasma aurantifolia" causes witches' broom disease. Witches' broom disease has the potential to cause significant economic losses throughout western Asia and North Africa. We used label-free quantitative shotgun proteomics to study changes in the proteome(More)
Salinity is a major factor that limits rice production worldwide. Rice is considered generally to be sensitive to salt stress during the reproductive stage. To determine the molecular mechanisms of salt tolerance at the reproductive stage, anther proteomic patterns for two contrasting rice genotypes IR64 (salt sensitive) and Cheriviruppu (salt tolerant)(More)
Substantial reductions in yield caused by drought stress can occur when parts of the root system experience water deficit even though other parts have sufficient access to soil water. To identify proteins associated to drought signaling, rice (Oryza sativa L. cv. IR64.) plants were transplanted into plastic pots with an internal wall dividing each pot into(More)
