microRNA (miRNAs) is a newly identified class of 20-24 nt non-protein-coding and endogenous small RNA, which plays an important role in plant growth, development and response to environmental stresses. Combined with bioinformatic method, the types, abundance, and targets of known miRNAs in root and leaf of maize (Zea mays L.) were analyzed by small RNA deep(More)
Maize (Zea mays) is the most widely cultivated crop around the world, however, it is commonly affected by phosphate (Pi) deficiency and the underlying molecular basis of responses mechanism is still unknown. In this study, the transcriptional response of maize roots to Pi starvation at 3 days after the onset of Pi deprivation was assessed. The investigation(More)
Different stressed conditions impair plant growth and further, cause great loss of crop yield and even lead to lose production completely. Increasing resistance/tolerance of crops under stressed conditions is a major goal of numerous plant breeders, and many elegant works are focusing on this area to uncover these complicated mechanisms underlying it.(More)
The heavy metals in soil not only damage plant growth, but also threaten the health of human beings and animals through food chain. Heavy metal-transport proteins play crucial roles in the heavy metals uptake and tolerance of plants. Plant heavy metal-transport proteins can be classified as metal-uptake proteins and metal-efflux proteins. The metal-uptake(More)
Biotic and abiotic stresses influence plant growth and cause great loss to crop yield. In the long course of evolution, plants have developed intricate biological mechanism to resist stressed conditions. Under various stressed conditions, not only the protein-coding genes, but also the non-protein-coding genes were induced for response. More and more(More)
