To investigate the genetic background for aluminum (Al) tolerance in rice, a recombinant inbred (RI) population, derived from a cross between an Al-sensitive lowland indica rice variety IR1552 and an Al-tolerant upland japonica rice variety Azucena, was used in culture solution. A molecular linkage map, together with 104 amplified fragment length(More)
 The amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technique combined with selective genotyping was used to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with tolerance for phosphorus (P) deficiency in rice. P deficiency tolerant cultivar IR20 was crossed to IR55178-3B-9-3 (sensitive to P-deficiency) and 285 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) were produced by(More)
Eighty-four selected lines from a recombinant inbred (RI) line population of 284 lines derived from a cross between the indica varieties IR20 and IR55178-3B-9-3 were used in a hydroponic culture experiment with sufficient P supply (10 mg P L−1) and P-deficient stress (0.05 mg P L−1). After 2 weeks, the activity of acid phosphatase (AAP) in roots of each(More)
Bacteriophage lambda has for many years been a model system for understanding mechanisms of gene regulation. A 'genetic switch' enables the phage to transition from lysogenic growth to lytic development when triggered by specific environmental conditions. The key component of the switch is the cI repressor, which binds to two sets of three operator sites on(More)
In the present study, we found that the expression patterns of the vegetative profilins and actin depolymerizing factors (ADFs) were specifically altered under low temperature (17 °C) stress using a real-time PCR. Our results show that also reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton was triggered by a low temperature. Facilitation of microfilament (MF)(More)
KLF5 is a basic transcriptional factor that regulates multiple physiopathological processes. Our recent study showed that deletion of Klf5 in mouse prostate promotes tumorigenesis initiated by the deletion of Pten. While molecular characterization of Klf5-null tumors suggested that angiogenesis was partially responsible for tumor promotion, the precise(More)
Five rice genotypes with different performance under P-stress condition were tested in both a soil pot experiment and a solution culture experiment under different P supply conditions to evaluate rice performance to P stress. The relative parameters, defined as a ratio of the parameters measured under P stress condition to the parameters measured under P(More)
A double haploid (DH) population and a recombinant inbred (RI) population derived from a cross between a japonica male parent Azucena and indica female parents, IR64 and IR1552 respectively, were used in both field and pot experiments for detecting QTLs and epistasis for rice panicle length in different genetic background and different environments.
