MatGAT: An application that generates similarity/identity matrices using protein or DNA sequences
TLDR
MatGAT (Matrix Global Alignment Tool), a simple, easy to use computer application that generates similarity/identity matrices for DNA or protein sequences without needing pre-alignment of the data, is developed.
The Auxin Conjugate Hydrolase Family of Medicago truncatula and Their Expression During the Interaction with Two Symbionts
TLDR
An intricate control system that regulates free and conjugated auxins in Medicago truncatula is suggested, which is most highly expressed in flowers and MtIAR36 in terminal leaves.
A Novel Auxin Conjugate Hydrolase from Wheat with Substrate Specificity for Longer Side-Chain Auxin Amide Conjugates1
TLDR
Temporal expression studies of TaIAR3 indicate that the transcript is initially expressed at day 1 after germination and Expression decreases through days 2, 5, 10, 15, and 20, and spatial expression studies found similar levels of expression throughout all wheat tissues examined.
A Molecular Phylogenomic Analysis of the ILR1-Like Family of IAA Amidohydrolase Genes
TLDR
DNA and protein sequence analyses of ILL1 and ILR1 suggest high conservation, and present evidence suggests that IAR3 has undergone the least evolution and is most conserved, while ILL3 is least conserving, with the fewest orthologous species and orthologues.
The Intraspecific Phylogenetics of Arabidopsis thaliana in Worldwide Populations
TLDR
The commonly held premise that North American Arabidopsis thaliana populations originated in Europe is supported and the hypothesis thatArabidopsis originated in Asia requires additional examination.
Isolation and Characterization of Mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana with Increased Resistance to Growth Inhibition by Indoleacetic Acid-Amino Acid Conjugates
TLDR
Two mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana that are resistant to growth inhibition by indole-3-acetic acid (IAA)-phenylalanine have been isolated and analysis of a cross between icr1 and icr2 indicated that these mutations were at distinct loci and that their effects were additive.
Population structure of Zostera marina (eelgrass) on the western Atlantic coast is characterized by poor connectivity and inbreeding.
TLDR
Allelic richness suggests that Chesapeake Bay has the greatest internal genetic diversity of the sites studied, and there is evidence of demographic bottlenecking and particularly low genetic diversity in Long Island.
A phylogenetic examination of the primary anthocyanin production pathway of the Plantae
TLDR
The hypothesis that “blue” and “red” anthocyanin pigments did not evolve until 300-350 mya along with the gymnosperms, although the ‘red’ and ‘blue’ anthocyaen pigments may be as ancient as the mosses (~450 mya) is supported.
ILR1 and sILR1 IAA amidohydrolase homologs differ in expression pattern and substrate specificity
TLDR
Examination of ILR1 and sILR1 transcripts in different tissues shows that both sILr1 and ILr1 are highly expressed in roots, although ILR2 appears more highly expressedIn hypocotyls, flowers, and basal leaves than sILS, while sILM1 has a higher affinity for IAA-alanine than ILR3.
A Phylogenomic Study of the Genus Alphavirus Employing Whole Genome Comparison
TLDR
The data suggest that the Salmon Pancreatic Disease Virus and Sleeping Disease Virus are sufficiently divergent to form a separate clade from the other alphaviruses, and the whole Rubella viral genome provides an ideal outgroup for phylogenomic studies of the genus Alphavirus.
