The draft genome of Tibetan hulless barley reveals adaptive patterns to the high stressful Tibetan Plateau
Significance The draft genome of Tibetan hulless barley provides a robust framework to better understand Poaceae evolution and a substantial basis for functional genomics of crop species with a largeExpand
Virus-induced silencing of genes encoding LEA protein in Tibetan hulless barley (Hordeum vulgare ssp. vulgare) and their relationship to drought tolerance
Expression of the late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) gene is usually associated with plant response to dehydration. In this study, a drought-tolerant genotype was screened from 48 accessions ofExpand
Transcriptome Assembly and Analysis of Tibetan Hulless Barley (Hordeum vulgare L. var. nudum) Developing Grains, with Emphasis on Quality Properties
Background Hulless barley is attracting increasing attention due to its unique nutritional value and potential health benefits. However, the molecular biology of the barley grain development andExpand
Overexpression of AtHDG11 enhanced drought tolerance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Drought is one of the major abiotic stresses restricting the yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Breeding wheat varieties with drought tolerance is an effective and durable way to fight againstExpand
A Single Nucleotide Polymorphism of Nud Converts the Caryopsis Type of Barley (Hordeum Vulgare L.)
Whether the caryopsis of barley is naked or covered is controlled by the Nud gene encoding an ethylene response factor (ERF) family transcription factor (TF) of the AP2/ERF TF superfamily that isExpand
Characterization of a genome-specific Gypsy-like retrotransposon sequence and development of a molecular marker specific for Dasypyrum villosum (L.)
Triticum aestivum Chinese Spring (CS), Xiaoyan 54, Gaoyou 503, ABD Mianyang 26, Neimai 9, 9R178, 9R137 Dasypyrum villosum W67266, W67290, H.V078, H.V077, H.V076 V Triticum durum D311, Mo7, 81086A ABExpand
New insights into the origin and evolution of α-amylase genes in green plants
Gene duplication is a source of genetic materials and evolutionary changes, and has been associated with gene family expansion. Functional divergence of duplicated genes is strongly directed byExpand
Structural organization and functional divergence of high isoelectric point α-amylase genes in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
BackgroundHigh isoelectric point α-amylase genes (Amy1) play major roles during cereal seed germination, and are associated with unacceptable high residual α-amylase activities in ripe wheat grains.Expand
Dehydration induced transcriptomic responses in two Tibetan hulless barley (Hordeum vulgare var. nudum) accessions distinguished by drought tolerance
BackgroundThe harsh environment on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau gives Tibetan hulless barley (Hordeum vulgare var. nudum) great ability to resist adversities such as drought, salinity, and lowExpand
Molecular Cloning and Characterization of Two Genes Encoding Tryptophan Decarboxylase from Aegilops variabilis with Resistance to the Cereal Cyst Nematode (Heterodera avenae) and Root-Knot Nematode
Tryptophan decarboxylase (TDC), which catalyzes the conversion of Trp to tryptamine, provides a common backbone for many secondary metabolites, and is important in defending plants from abioticExpand
