Plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs) are a subfamily of aquaporins that enable fast and controlled translocation of water across the membrane. In this study, we systematically identified and cloned ten PIP genes from rice. Based on the similarity of the amino acid sequences they encoded, these rice PIP genes were classified into two groups and(More)
We used cDNA microarrays containing approximately 9,000 unigenes to identify 486 salt responsive expressed sequence tags (ESTs) (representing approximately 450 unigenes) in shoots of the highly salt-tolerant rice variety, Nona Bokra (Oryza sativa L. ssp. Indica pv. Nona). Some of the genes identified in this study had previously been associated with salt(More)
P38/Mk2 (mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-activated protein kinase-2, also known as MAKAP kinase-2) is a member of the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) family, and participates in inflammatory responses directly or indirectly. WIN55, 212-2 (WIN55) is a synthetic non-selective agonist of cannabinoid (CB) receptors with remarkable(More)
The population diversity greatly affects the evolutionary efficiency and solution quality of gene expression programming algorithm. Population diversity should be preserved by keeping certain distance between individuals in the population. Edit distance can describe the similarity of individuals well. Crossover is a way to create and maintain the distance(More)
