ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Kelussia odoratissima Mozzaf, formerly Apium odoratissima, is a plant locally called "Karafs", found in central Zagros region of Iran. Leaves and stems of the plant are traditionally used in the treatment of hypertension and inflammation. Lowering blood pressure effects of Kelussia odoratissima Mozzaf (wild celery) was(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression in almost all plants and animals. They play an important role in key processes, such as proliferation, apoptosis, and pathogen-host interactions. Nevertheless, the mechanisms by which miRNAs act are not fully understood. The first step toward unraveling the function of a(More)
Biotic and abiotic stresses affect plant development and production through alternation of the gene expression pattern. Gene expression itself is under the control of different regulators such as miRNAs and transcription factors (TFs). MiRNAs are known to play important roles in regulation of stress responses via interacting with their target mRNAs. Here,(More)

Drought is the major abiotic stress with adverse effects on growth and productivity of plants. It induces the expression of various genes that are involved in stress response and tolerant/sensitive phenotypes. In this study, the expression of several genes were analyzed in response to dehydration in almond (Prunus dulcis ‘Sefied’) to shed light on the(More)
The current study was conducted to evaluate the physiological and molecular response of self-regenerating annual Medicago species (M. polymorpha and M. lupulina) to juglone exposure. A randomized complete block design was performed in which two treatment groups consisted of a control and juglone (10−4 M) allotted to main plots and genotypes assigned to(More)
