Gametophytic self-incompatibility (GSI) is a genetically controlled mechanism to prevent inbreeding and promote out-crossing. It is controlled by a single multi-allelic Slocus which contains two separate genes: one stylar S-RNase gene and one pollen S-gene. In gametophytic self-incompatible Japanese pear (Pyrus pyrifolia Nakai.), SFBB-gamma genes have been(More)
Fructose 1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (FBA) catalyzes the reverse cleavage of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate into dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) and 3-phosphate glyceraldehyde (G-3-P). DHAP acts as a precursor for the synthesis of glycerol, an important osmotically compatible solute under salt stress. Using rapid amplification of cDNA ends, the complete sequence(More)
Triacylglycerols (TAG) are the major molecules of energy storage in eukaryotes. TAG are packed in subcellular structures called oil bodies or lipid droplets. Oleosins (OLE) are the major proteins in plant oil bodies. Multiple isoforms of OLE are present in plants such as tung tree (Vernicia fordii), whose seeds are rich in novel TAG with a wide range of(More)
Tung tree (Vernicia fordii) provides the sole source of tung oil widely used in industry. Lack of fatty acid composition and molecular markers hinders biochemical, genetic and breeding research. The objectives of this study were to determine fatty acid profiles and develop unigene-derived simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers in tung tree. Fatty acid(More)
Tung tree (Vernicia fordii) is an economically important tree widely cultivated for industrial oil production in China. To better understand the molecular basis of tung tree chloroplasts, we sequenced and characterized its genome using PacBio RS II sequencing platforms. The chloroplast genome was sequenced with 161,528 bp in length, composed with one pair(More)
Gametophytic self-incompatibility (GSI) is a genetically controlled mechanism to prevent inbreeding and promote out-crossing. Pyrus pyrifolia is a commercially important fruit tree that exhibits GSI. It is necessary to identify S-genotypes of cultivars for determination of cross-compatible combination prior to performing pear plantation and breeding(More)
