An Effector of RNA-Directed DNA Methylation in Arabidopsis Is an ARGONAUTE 4- and RNA-Binding Protein
DNA methylation is a conserved epigenetic mark in plants and mammals. In Arabidopsis, DNA methylation can be triggered by small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) through an RNA-directed DNA methylationExpand

An RNA polymerase II- and AGO4-associated protein acts in RNA-directed DNA methylation
DNA methylation is an important epigenetic mark in many eukaryotes. In plants, 24-nucleotide small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) bound to the effector protein, Argonaute 4 (AGO4), can direct de novo DNAExpand

A conserved transcriptional regulator is required for RNA-directed DNA methylation and plant development.
RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) is a conserved mechanism for epigenetic silencing of transposons and other repetitive elements. We report that the rdm4 (RNA-directed DNA Methylation4) mutationExpand

ASYMMETRIC LEAVES2-LIKE38 gene, a Member of AS2/LOB family of Arabidopsis, causes leaf dorsoventral alternation in transgenic cockscomb plants
ASYMMETRIC LEAVES2-LIKE38/LBD41 gene of Arabidopsis is a member of the ASYMMETRIC LEAVES2 (AS2)/LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARIES (LOB) domain gene family. To explore ASL38 function, we transformed 35S:ASL38Expand

Cloning and characterization of a novel dehydrin gene, SiDhn2, from Saussurea involucrata Kar. et Kir.
Saussurea involucrata Kar. et Kir. is a hardy dicotyledonous plant capable of tolerating severe abiotic stress conditions. In a previous study, we created a cDNA library to determine what factors areExpand

Modification of flowers and leaves in Cockscomb (Celosia cristata) ectopically expressing Arabidopsis ASYMMERTIC LEAVES2-LIKE38 (ASL38/LBD41) gene
ASYMMERTIC LEAVES2-LIKE38 (ASL38/LBD41), isolated from Arabidopsis, is a member of the LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARY DOMAIN gene family. We reported that ASL38 might be involved in the dorsoventralExpand

Endonuclease activity of RecJ from extremely alkaliphilic Bacillus alcalophilus
At present, all documented RecJs are exonucleases, degrading single-stranded nucleic acids. Here, we report a novel RecJ, from the extremely alkaliphilic bacterium Bacillus alcalophilus (BaRecJ),Expand
