OsPTF1, a Novel Transcription Factor Involved in Tolerance to Phosphate Starvation in Rice1[w]
We report here on a novel transcription factor with a basic helix-loop-helix domain for tolerance to inorganic phosphate (Pi) starvation in rice (Oryza sativa). The gene is designated OsPTF1. TheExpand
Heterotrimeric G proteins regulate nitrogen-use efficiency in rice
The drive toward more sustainable agriculture has raised the profile of crop plant nutrient-use efficiency. Here we show that a major rice nitrogen-use efficiency quantitative trait locus (qNGR9) isExpand
A Rare Allele of GS2 Enhances Grain Size and Grain Yield in Rice.
Grain size determines grain weight and affects grain quality. Several major quantitative trait loci (QTLs) regulating grain size have been cloned; however, our understanding of the underlyingExpand
A missense mutation in the transmembrane domain of CESA4 affects protein abundance in the plasma membrane and results in abnormal cell wall biosynthesis in rice
Cellulose synthase (CESA) is a critical catalytic subunit of the cellulose synthase complex responsible for glucan chain elongation. Our knowledge about how CESA functions is still very limited.Expand
LSCHL4 from Japonica Cultivar, Which Is Allelic to NAL1, Increases Yield of Indica Super Rice 93-11
SUMMARY The basic premise of high yield in rice is to improve leaf photosynthetic efficiency, and coordinate the source–sink relationship in rice plants. The quantitative trait loci (QTLs) qLSCHL4,Expand

Gelatinization temperature (GT) is an important parameter in evaluating the cooking and eating quality of rice. Indeed, the phenotype, biochemistry and inheritance of GT have been widely studied inExpand
Identification and characterization of NARROW ANDROLLED LEAF 1, a novel gene regulating leaf morphology and plant architecture in rice
Leaf morphology is an important agronomic trait in rice breeding. We isolated three allelic mutants of NARROW AND ROLLED LEAF1 (nrl1) which showed phenotypes of reduced leaf width and semi-rolledExpand
PGL, encoding chlorophyllide a oxygenase 1, impacts leaf senescence and indirectly affects grain yield and quality in rice
Highlight PGL encodes CAO1 in rice, which is essential for Chl b synthesis and affects Chl synthesis and degradation. PGL also impacts leaf senescence and indirectly affects grain yield and quality.
Genome re-sequencing suggested a weedy rice origin from domesticated indica-japonica hybridization: a case study from southern China
Main conclusionWhole-genome re-sequencing of weedy rice from southern China reveals that weedy rice can originate from hybridization of domesticatedindicaandjaponicarice.AbstractWeedy rice (OryzaExpand
BC10, a DUF266-containing and Golgi-located type II membrane protein, is required for cell-wall biosynthesis in rice (Oryza sativa L.).
Glycosyltransferases (GTs) are one of the largest enzyme groups required for the synthesis of complex wall polysaccharides and glycoproteins in plants. However, due to the limited number of relatedExpand
