We describe a method for the simultaneous extraction of proteins and nucleic acids from Medicago truncatula tissues. Using a modified TRIzol reagent method, we developed a simple and an effective way to simultaneously extract proteins and nucleic acids from a single sample. We verified that this method does not affect the quality or quantitation of the(More)
Salinity and drought are two major environmental factors that limit the growth and yield of many forage crops in semi-arid and arid regions. Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) is one of the most important forage crops in many countries. We aim to investigate the molecular mechanisms of alfalfa in response to salt and drought stresses in this study. Physiological(More)
Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is the most extensively cultivated forage legume in the world, and salinity stress is the most problematic environmental factors limiting alfalfa production. To evaluate alfalfa tissue variations in response to salt stress, comparative physiological and proteomic analyses were made of salt responses in the roots and shoots of the(More)
White clover (Trifolium repens L.) has been cultivated for ornamental use because of its flowers, leaf marks and creeping habit. Although a mutation in flower color is very infrequent in this species, the red-flowered mutant of white clover was a novel germplasm for ornamental white clover breeding. The mechanism of flower pigmentation in white clover is(More)
