Development of crop varieties with high nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) is imperative for sustainable agriculture. Understanding how plant genes respond to low N stress is essential for formulating… Expand
AaORA, a trichome-specific AP2/ERF transcription factor of Artemisia annua, is a positive regulator in the artemisinin biosynthetic pathway and in disease resistance to Botrytis cinerea.
· Six transcription factors of APETALA2/ethylene-response factor (AP2/ERF) family were cloned and analyzed in Artemisia annua. Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-Q-PCR) showed that… Expand
An L1 box binding protein, GbML1, interacts with GbMYB25 to control cotton fibre development
Transcription factors play key roles in plant development through their interaction with cis-elements and/or other transcription factors. A HD-Zip IV family transcription factor, Gossypium barbadense… Expand

- International journal of food microbiology
- 28 February 2010
A 5'-nuclease real-time PCR assay using a minor groove binding probe was developed for the detection of Salmonella enterica from artificially contaminated foods. S. enterica-specific sequences were… Expand
Heterosis and polymorphisms of gene expression in an elite rice hybrid as revealed by a microarray analysis of 9198 unique ESTs
Despite the significant contributions of utilizing heterosis to crop productivity worldwide, the biological mechanisms of heterosis remained largely uncharacterized. In this study, we analyzed gene… Expand
Conservation of noncoding microsatellites in plants: implication for gene regulation
BackgroundMicrosatellites are extremely common in plant genomes, and in particular, they are significantly enriched in the 5' noncoding regions. Although some 5' noncoding microsatellites involved in… Expand
Identification of Gene Modules Associated with Drought Response in Rice by Network-Based Analysis
Understanding the molecular mechanisms that underlie plant responses to drought stress is challenging due to the complex interplay of numerous different genes. Here, we used network-based gene… Expand
Preference of simple sequence repeats in coding and non-coding regions of Arabidopsis thaliana
We identified 1140 full-length genes that contained at least one locus of AG or AAG repeats in their upstream sequences, and whose functional characteristics were significantly associated with the repeats. Expand
The Genome of Artemisia annua Provides Insight into the Evolution of Asteraceae Family and Artemisinin Biosynthesis.
Artemisia annua, commonly known as sweet wormwood or Qinghao, is a shrub native to China and has long been used for medicinal purposes. A. annua is now cultivated globally as the only natural source… Expand
