MER3 is required for normal meiotic crossover formation, but not for presynaptic alignment in rice
MER3, a ZMM protein, is required for the formation of crossovers in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Arabidopsis. Here, MER3, the first identified ZMM gene in a monocot, is characterized by map-basedExpand

ZmWRKY33, a WRKY maize transcription factor conferring enhanced salt stress tolerances in Arabidopsis
Drought, high salinity and low temperature are major abiotic stresses affecting growth of plants and can result in severe yield losses for economic crops. In plants, most abiotic stress responses areExpand

Physicochemical properties and development of wheat large and small starch granules during endosperm development
Wheat mature seeds have large, lenticular A-type starch granules, and small, spherical B-type and irregular C-type starch granules. During endosperm development, large amyloplasts came fromExpand

OsNAC52, a rice NAC transcription factor, potentially responds to ABA and confers drought tolerance in transgenic plants
A novel NAC (NAM, ATAF1/2, CUC2) homologous gene, OsNAC52, was isolated from Oryza sativa L using RACE (rapid amplification of cDNA ends). Analysis of the amino acid sequence of OsNAC52 revealed aExpand

A maize phytochrome-interacting factor 3 improves drought and salt stress tolerance in rice
Abstract Phytochrome-interacting factor 3 (PIF3) activates light-responsive transcriptional network genes in coordination with the circadian clock and plant hormones to modulate plant growth andExpand

ERECT PANICLE2 Encodes a Novel Protein That Regulates Panicle Erectness in Indica Rice
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) inflorescence (panicle) architecture is an important agronomic trait for rice breeding. A number of high-yielding japonica rice strains, characterized by an erect panicle (EP)Expand

Flavonoid triglycosides from the seeds of Camellia oleifera Abel
Abstract Two flavonoid triglycosides, kaempferol 3- O -{β- d -glucopyranosyl–(1 → 2)-[α- l -rhamnopyranosyl-(1 → 6)]-β- d -glucopyranoside} ( 1 ) and kaempferol 3- O -{β- d -xylopyranosyl-(1 → 2)-[α-Expand

A maize phytochrome‐interacting factors protein ZmPIF1 enhances drought tolerance by inducing stomatal closure and improves grain yield in Oryza sativa
Summary Phytochrome‐interacting factors (PIFs) play major roles in regulating plant growth and development, but their roles in drought stress remain elusive. Here, we cloned and characterized a maizeExpand

Identification of Genes Related to Cold Tolerance and a Functional Allele That Confers Cold Tolerance1
A genome-wide association study identified genes and single-nucleotide polymorphisms related to cold tolerance in rice. Cold stress is a major factor limiting rice (Oryza sativa) productionExpand

Ability to Remove Na+ and Retain K+ Correlates with Salt Tolerance in Two Maize Inbred Lines Seedlings
Maize is moderately sensitive to salt stress; therefore, soil salinity is a serious threat to its production worldwide. Here, excellent salt-tolerant maize inbred line TL1317 and extremelyExpand
