Overexpression of microRNA OsmiR397 improves rice yield by increasing grain size and promoting panicle branching
TLDR
It is reported that overexpression of the rice microRNA OsmiR397, which is naturally highly expressed in young panicles and grains, enlarges grain size and promotes panicle branching, leading to an increase in overall grain yield of up to 25% in a field trial. Expand
Genetic transformation of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz)
TLDR
A method for regenerating stably transformed cassava plants after cocultivation with Agrobacterium tumefaciens is reported, which opens cassava for future improvement via biotechnology. Expand
Molecular systematics and phytochemistry of Rehmannia (Scrophulariaceae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequence data reveal a well-resolved topology in which Rehmannia glutinosa and ReHmannia solanifolia and Re Hmannia piasezkii and Reh Mannia elata are well-supported species pairs. Expand
Transcriptional Regulations on the Low-Temperature-Induced Floral Transition in an Orchidaceae Species, Dendrobium nobile: An Expressed Sequence Tags Analysis
TLDR
Results from this study suggest that the networks regulating vernalization-induced floral transition are conserved, but just in a part, in D. nobile, temperate cereals, and Arabidopsis. Expand
Phytochemistry and molecular systematics of Triaenophora rupestris and Oreosolen wattii (Scrophulariaceae).
TLDR
The relationships between the genera Triaenophora, Oreosolen and Rehmannia were investigated and a phylogenetic tree illustrating the taxonomic relationships is presented. Expand
Overexpression of an Orchid (Dendrobium nobile) SOC1/TM3-Like Ortholog, DnAGL19, in Arabidopsis Regulates HOS1-FT Expression
TLDR
Results suggest that DnAGL19 controls the action of the HOS1-FT module depending on temperature cues, which could contribute to regulation of D. nobile flowering time and provide insights into how flowering is fine-tuned in D.nobile to acclimate the plant to seasonal changes in temperature. Expand
Phylogenetic placement of Triaenophora (formerly Scrophulariaceae) with some implications for the phylogeny of Lamiales
TLDR
The resulting phylogeny is in agreement with other data such as phytochemistry and provides a framework for further investigation of character evolution in Lamiales. Expand
Familial placement of Wightia (Lamiales)
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenetic inspection of Wightia is presented based on noncoding chloroplast loci and nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer, and on chemical analysis, which suggests a familial position of Wirstia belonging to or close to Paulowniaceae. Expand
Phylogenetics of the mycoheterotrophic genus Thismia (Thismiaceae: Dioscoreales) with a focus on the Old World taxa: delineation of novel natural groups and insights into the evolution of
TLDR
This investigation investigates the phylogenetic relationships of 41 species (and one variety) of Thismia from the Old World and provides a phylogenetic basis for the development of a novel sectional classification of thismia reflecting morphological and geographical traits. Expand
