P(3)DB (http://www.p3db.org/) provides a resource of protein phosphorylation data from multiple plants. The database was initially constructed with a dataset from oilseed rape, including 14,670 nonredundant phosphorylation sites from 6382 substrate proteins, representing the largest collection of plant phosphorylation data to date. Additional protein(More)
The ‘ozone (O3)-responsive transcriptome’ behavior in the panicles and grains of rice plant was studied individually through high-throughput oligo-DNA microarray technique. O3 differentially and separately regulated 620 and 130 genes in the panicles and grains. Among the O3-responsive genes, 176 and 444 genes were up- and down-regulated in panicle compared(More)
We report molecular changes in leaves of rice plants (Oryza sativa L. - reference crop plant and grass model) exposed to ultra low-dose ionizing radiation, first using contaminated soil from the exclusion zone around Chernobyl reactor site. Results revealed induction of stress-related marker genes (Northern blot) and secondary metabolites (LC-MS/MS) in(More)
Plants have developed multifaceted defensive systems against adverse environmental factors. One such recognized system is the production of metabolites in plants. Jasmonic acid (JA) and its metabolite methyl jasmonate (MeJA) are known to play key roles in metabolites production. The role of MeJA as a mobile signal has been established in Arabidopsis and(More)
Protein phosphorylation is a crucial regulatory mechanism in various organisms. With recent improvements in mass spectrometry, phosphorylation site data are rapidly accumulating. Despite this wealth of data, computational prediction of phosphorylation sites remains a challenging task. This is particularly true in plants, due to the limited information on(More)
The extracellular space between cell wall and plasma membrane acts as the first battle field between plants and pathogens. Bacteria, fungi, and oomycetes that colonize the living plant tissues are encased in this narrow region in the initial step of infection. Therefore, the apoplastic region is believed to be an interface which mediates the first crosstalk(More)
The psbA2 gene exhibits light-dependent and rhythmic expression in a unicellular cyanobacterium, Microcystis aeruginosa (Synechocystis) K-81. To further understand the psbA2 expression, biological analyses were performed in homologous and heterologous cyanobacterial cells. The results of the experiments using the K-81 cells revealed that (i) the(More)
Rice blast disease caused by Magnaporthe oryzae is one of the most serious diseases of cultivated rice (Oryza sativa L.) in most rice-growing regions of the world. In order to investigate early response genes in rice, we utilized the transcriptome analysis approach using a 300 K tilling microarray to rice leaves infected with compatible and incompatible M.(More)
Plant proteomics has made tremendous contributions in understanding the complex processes of plant biology. Here, its current status in India and Nepal is discussed. Gel-based proteomics is predominantly utilized on crops and non-crops to analyze majorly abiotic (49 %) and biotic (18 %) stress, development (11 %) and post-translational modifications (7 %).(More)
