Hormone-sensitive lipases (HSLs) are widely distributed in microorganisms, plants, and animals. Microbial HSLs are classified into two subfamilies, an unnamed new subfamily and the GDSAG motif subfamily. Due to the lack of structural information, the detailed catalytic mechanism of the new subfamily is not yet clarified. Based on sequence analysis, we(More)
Gibberellins stimulate cell elongation and expansion during plant growth and development. Carrot is a root plant with great value and undergoes obvious alteration in organ size over the period of plant growth. However, the roles of gibberellins in carrot remain unclear. To investigate the effects of gibberelliins on the growth of carrot, we treated carrot(More)
Heat shock factors (HSFs) play key roles in the response to abiotic stress in eukaryotes. In this study, 35 DcHSFs were identified from carrot (Daucus carota L.) based on the carrot genome database. All 35 DcHSFs were divided into three classes (A, B, and C) according to the structure and phylogenetic relationships of four different plants, namely,(More)
Carrot, a biennial herb of the Apiaceae family, is among the most important vegetable crops in the world. In this study, nine candidate reference genes (GAPDH, ACTIN, eIF-4α, PP2A, SAND, TIP41, UBQ, EF-1α, and TUB) were cloned from carrot. Carrot plants were subjected to abiotic stresses (heat, cold, salt, and drought) and hormone stimuli (gibberellin,(More)
Ascorbic acid (AsA), known as vitamin C, is an essential nutrient for humans and mainly absorbed from food. Tea plant (Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze) leaves can be a dietary source of AsA for humans. However, experimental evidence on the biosynthesis, recycling pathway and distribution of AsA during leaf development in tea plants is unclear. To gain(More)
Carrot root development associates lignin deposition and regulation. Carrot is consumed worldwide and is a good source of nutrients. However, excess lignin deposition may reduce the taste and quality of carrot root. Molecular mechanisms underlying lignin accumulation in carrot are still lacking. To address this problem, we collected taproots of wild and(More)
Gibberellins (GAs) are important growth regulators involved in plant development processes. However, limited information is known about the relationship between GA and xylogenesis in carrots. In this study, carrot roots were treated with GA3. The effects of applied GA3 on root growth, xylem development, and lignin accumulation were then investigated.(More)
Gibberellins (GAs) are considered potentially important regulators of cell elongation and expansion in plants. Carrot undergoes significant alteration in organ size during its growth and development. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying gibberellin accumulation and perception during carrot growth and development remain unclear. In this study, five(More)
Auxins are a class of small indolic compounds that affect plant growth and developmental processes. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying auxin accumulation and perception during carrot growth and development are still unclear. To address this, carrot samples from five stages were collected. Morphological characteristics and auxin accumulation were(More)
Cryptotaenia japonica Hassk of the Apiaceae family serves as an important vegetable and a medicinal herb in Asia and North America. High temperature leads to serious damage during summer. Here, deep transcriptome sequencing was performed to obtain information on gene expression and heat shock protein genes in C. japonica Hassk. A total of 40,734 unigenes(More)
