Adaptation of plasma membrane H(+)-ATPase of rice roots to low pH as related to ammonium nutrition.
The preference of paddy rice for NH(4)(+) rather than NO(3)(-) is associated with its tolerance to low pH since a rhizosphere acidification occurs during NH(4)(+) absorption. However, the adaptationExpand

Role of microRNAs in plant responses to nutrient stress
BackgroundPlants must acquire at least 14 mineral nutrients from the soil to complete their life cycles. Insufficient availability or extreme high levels of the nutrients significantly affect plantExpand

Identification and expression analyses of calmodulin-binding transcription activator genes in soybean
Background and aimsEnvironmental stresses are major hurdles for the production of soybean (Glycine max), a major food crop that is able to acquire N and P nutrients through symbiotic association withExpand

microRNA expression profiles associated with phosphorus deficiency in white lupin (Lupinus albus L.)
Phosphate (P) deficiency is one of the major factors limiting crop growth and production. Although physiological and molecular identification of P deficiency in plants has been the focus for manyExpand

Genome-wide identification, expression analysis of GH3 family genes in Medicago truncatula under stress-related hormones and Sinorhizobium meliloti infection
Auxin plays a pivotal role in the regulation of plant growth and development by controlling the expression of auxin response genes rapidly. As one of the major auxin early response gene families,Expand

Involvement of calmodulin and calmodulin-like proteins in plant responses to abiotic stresses
Transient changes in intracellular Ca2+ concentration have been well recognized to act as cell signals coupling various environmental stimuli to appropriate physiological responses with accuracy andExpand

Adaptation of plasma membrane H+ ATPase and H+ pump to P deficiency in rice roots
The plasma membrane (PM) H+ ATPase is involved in the plant response to nutrient deficiency. However, adaptation of this enzyme in monocotyledon plants to phosphorus (P) deficiency lacks directExpand

Rhizobia-inoculation enhances the soybean’s tolerance to salt stress
Background and aimsOur recent research revealed that several key enzymes involved in flavonoid biosynthesis played vital roles in soybean’s tolerance to salinity. Since the flavonoids also act asExpand

Stimulation of phosphorus uptake by ammonium nutrition involves plasma membrane H+ ATPase in rice roots
AimsNitrogen, especially NH4+, can stimulate the uptake of phosphorus in plants, but the underlying mechanisms have not been clearly elucidated. Because phosphate is taken up via an anion/H+Expand

Analysis of EF-Hand Proteins in Soybean Genome Suggests Their Potential Roles in Environmental and Nutritional Stress Signaling
Calcium ion (Ca2+) is a universal second messenger that plays a critical role in plant responses to diverse physiological and environmental stimuli. The stimulus-specific signals are perceived andExpand
