DEETIOLATED1 (DET1) plays a critical role in developmental and environmental responses in many plants. To date, the functions of OsDET1 in rice (Oryza sativa) have been largely unknown. OsDET1 is an ortholog of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) DET1 Here, we found that OsDET1 is essential for maintaining normal rice development. The repression of OsDET1(More)
A phylogenetic tree was constructed by sequencing rbcL genes of 33 species representing 19 genera of Ranunculaceae, and three related species, Mahonia bealei, Mahonia fortunei and Nandina domestica. The results showed that the rbcL sequences of these Ranunculaceae range from 1,346 bp to 1,393 bp. The results based on the phylogenetic tree indicated that(More)
Cottonseed protein is underutilized due to the presence of pigment gland containing a toxic compound called gossypol. Cotton produces gossypol and related compounds in various tissues to protect itself against microbial, insect, and rodent attacks. Understanding the mechanism of cotton pigment gland formation and regulation of gossypol biosynthesis will(More)
