Populus euphratica is the only arboreal species that is established in the world's largest shifting-sand desert in China and is well-adapted to the extreme desert environment, so it is widely considered a model system for researching into abiotic stress resistance of woody plants. However, few P. euphratica reference genes (RGs) have been identified for(More)
Here, we compared the development of dark- and light-grown Chinese fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata) cotyledons, which synthesize chlorophyll in the dark, representing a different phenomenon from angiosperm model plants. We determined that the grana lamellar membranes were well developed in both chloroplasts and etiochloroplasts. The accumulation of thylakoid(More)
C-repeat binding factors (CBFs) play a key role in abiotic stresses. However, little is known about CBFs in Populus euphratica. Here, we isolated PeCBF4a, a member of CBF gene family from P. euphratica. Its expression was induced by dehydration, salinity and low temperature. We generated transgenic poplars (Populus tomentosa ‘YiXianCiZhu B385’)(More)
Despite the unshakable status of reverse transcription-quantitative PCR in gene expression analysis, it has certain disadvantages, including that the results are highly dependent on the reference genes selected for data normalization. Since inappropriate endogenous control genes will lead to inaccurate target gene expression profiles, the validation of(More)
