The over-expression of plant specific SnRK2 gene family members by hyperosmotic stress and some by abscisic acid is well established. In this report, we have analyzed the evolution of SnRK2 gene family in different plant lineages including green algae, moss, lycophyte, dicot and monocot. Our results provide some evidences to indicate that the natural(More)
NF-Y transcription factors encoded by HAP gene family, composed of three subunits (HAP2/NF-YA, HAP3/NF-YB and HAP5/NF-YC), are capable of transcriptional regulation of target genes with high specificity by binding to the CCAAT-containing promoter sequences. Here, we have characterized duplicated HAP genes in Selaginella moellendorffii and explored some(More)
Volume 1 • Issue 3 • 1000e108 J Plant Biochem Physiol ISSN: 2329-9029 JPBP, an open access journal Abiotic stress is the major threat towards the living world more precisely the plant kingdom whose development and productivity is negatively hampered. It is considered as the major cause behind plant damage and reduced crop yield [1]. Plants have developed(More)
Wireless sensor networks consist of low power lightweight sensor nodes that are often placed remotely for applications like wildlife monitoring, rainforest monitoring, military surveillance, forest fire detection etc. Here energy is a critical issue as nodes cannot be recharged and/or replaced frequently. In this paper we propose an energy efficient(More)
In recent decades, availability of ample information of various plant genomes has reached the hand of plant researchers through genome sequencing and expressed sequence tag (EST) analysis that eventually facilitate the functional study of wide range of genes. The previous work on plant functional genomics were exclusively based on forward genetics; that is,(More)
ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter is a large gene superfamily that utilizes the energy released from ATP hydrolysis for transporting myriad of substrates across the biological membranes. Although many investigations have been done on the structural and functional analysis of the ABC transporters in Oryza sativa, much less is known about molecular(More)
Saraca asoca (Roxb.) Wilde, (Ashok) is a plant native to India and is popular for its anti-cancer, anti-menorrhagic, anti-oxytocic, anti-microbial activities having extended uses in ayurveda, unani and homeopathy. Partial chloroplast matK gene (900 bp) was PCR amplified, sequenced and used to investigate the evolutionary inter- relationships of Indian(More)
Compelling evidences anticipated the well acclamation of involvement of exogenous and endogenous polyamines (PAs) in conferring salt tolerance in plants. Intracellular PA's anabolism and catabolism should have contributed to maintain endogenous PAs homeostasis to induce stress signal networks. In this report, the evolutionary study has been conducted to(More)
In order to provide a better understanding of the evolutionary history of vascular cryptogams, phylogenetic framework was developed based on ITS1, ITS2 and 5.8S rDNA sequences of 102 extant taxa of vascular cryptogams using Maximum Parsimony (MP) analysis. The analysis revealed high GC content in Isoetaceae (60.5 %) in comparison with Selaginellaceae (54.4(More)
Sensors embedded in smartphones, tabs can be extremely useful in providing reliable information on people's activities and behaviors, thereby ensuring a safe and sound living environment. Activity monitoring through posture identification is increasingly used for medical, surveillance and entertainment (gaming) applications. Major challenges for this task(More)
