Genome-Wide Identification and Analysis of MAPK and MAPKK Gene Families in Brachypodium distachyon
MAPK cascades are universal signal transduction modules and play important roles in plant growth, development and in response to a variety of biotic and abiotic stresses. Although MAPKs and MAPKKsExpand

Comparative metagenomics of microbial communities inhabiting deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimneys with contrasting chemistries
Deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimneys harbor a high diversity of largely unknown microorganisms. Although the phylogenetic diversity of these microorganisms has been described previously, theExpand

TaASR1, a transcription factor gene in wheat, confers drought stress tolerance in transgenic tobacco.
Abscisic acid (ABA)-, stress-, and ripening-induced (ASR) proteins are reported to be involved in abiotic stresses. However, it is not known whether ASR genes confer drought stress tolerance byExpand

A Wheat WRKY Transcription Factor TaWRKY10 Confers Tolerance to Multiple Abiotic Stresses in Transgenic Tobacco
WRKY transcription factors are reported to be involved in defense regulation, stress response and plant growth and development. However, the precise role of WRKY transcription factors in abioticExpand

Expression of phytoene synthase1 and carotene desaturase crtI genes result in an increase in the total carotenoids content in transgenic elite wheat (Triticum aestivum L.).
Dietary micronutrient deficiencies, such as the lack of vitamin A, are a major source of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Carotenoids in food can function as provitamin A in humans, while grains ofExpand

A mutation in Arabidopsis BSK5 encoding a brassinosteroid-signaling kinase protein affects responses to salinity and abscisic acid.
As the most recently characterized group of plant hormones, brassinosteroids (BR) are involved in a number of physiological responses. Although many key components of the BR signaling pathway haveExpand

Optimization of Agrobacterium-mediated transformation conditions in mature embryos of elite wheat
Immature embryos have been used frequently as target tissues in the genetical transformation of wheat. However, obtaining a large number of high quality immature embryos throughout the year is aExpand

Identification and comprehensive analyses of the CBL and CIPK gene families in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
BackgroundCalcineurin B-like (CBL) proteins belong to a unique group of calcium sensors in plant that decode the Ca2+ signature by interacting with CBL-interacting protein kinases (CIPKs). AlthoughExpand

Overexpression of a wheat aquaporin gene, TaAQP8, enhances salt stress tolerance in transgenic tobacco.
Aquaporin (AQP) proteins have been shown to transport water and other small molecules through biological membranes, which is crucial for plants to combat salt stress. However, the precise role of AQPExpand
