Identification of genes associated with cold acclimation in perennial ryegrass.
Cold acclimation dramatically increases freezing tolerance in many temperate plant species. An understanding of cold acclimation is important for extending adaptation areas of perennial ryegrass.Expand

Histone acetylation associated up-regulation of the cell wall related genes is involved in salt stress induced maize root swelling
BackgroundSalt stress usually causes crop growth inhibition and yield decrease. Epigenetic regulation is involved in plant responses to environmental stimuli. The epigenetic regulation of the cellExpand

Trichostatin A and 5-azacytidine both cause an increase in global histone H4 acetylation and a decrease in global DNA and H3K9 methylation during mitosis in maize
BackgroundModifications of DNA and histones in various combinations are correlated with many cellular processes. In this study, we investigated the possible relationship between histone H4Expand

Zinc oxide nanoparticles-induced epigenetic change and G2/M arrest are associated with apoptosis in human epidermal keratinocytes
As an engineered nanomaterial, zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) are used frequently in biological applications and can make contact with human skin. Here, we systematically investigated the effectsExpand

ABA-mediated inhibition of seed germination is associated with ribosomal DNA chromatin condensation, decreased transcription, and ribosomal RNA gene hypoacetylation
Seed germination is a highly organized biological process accompanied by many cellular and metabolic changes. The ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene, which forms the nucleolus at interphase and is transcribedExpand

A unique form of cell death occurring in meristematic root tips of completely submerged maize seedlings
In maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings subjected to complete submergence, meristematic cells of primary root tips underwent a series of ultrastructural changes. The changes in the cytoplasm preceded thoseExpand

Isolation, characterization and evolutionary analysis of resistance gene analogs in annual ryegrass, perennial ryegrass and their hybrid
Recently, a number of disease-resistance genes related to a diverse range of pathogens were isolated from a wide variety of plant species. The majority of plant disease-resistance genes encoded aExpand

Analysis of Genome Architecture during SCNT Reveals a Role of Cohesin in Impeding Minor ZGA.
Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) can reprogram a somatic nucleus to a totipotent state. However, the re-organization of 3D chromatin structure in this process remains poorly understood. UsingExpand
