Leaves of maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings were supplied with different concentrations of abscisic acid (ABA). Its effects on the levels of superoxide radical (O(2)(-)), hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) and the content of catalytic Fe, the activities of several antioxidative enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), ascorbate peroxidase (APX) and(More)
Leaf sheath color plays an important role as a marker for rice genetic improvement. A recombinant inbred line (RIL) population consisting of 220 individuals was developed from a cross between an Oryza sativa subsp. indica variety, IRBB60, and an Oryza sativa subsp. japonica variety, 9407. Within the RIL population, a line, RI51, was found to have purple(More)
Fourteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed and characterized for the endangered and tertiary relict tree, Euptelea pleiospermum. A genomic DNA enrichment protocol was used to isolate microsatellite loci and polymorphism was explored using 32 individuals from one natural population. The observed number of alleles ranged from two to nine. The(More)
A library consisting of 1123 single segment substitution lines (SSSLs) in the same genetic back-ground of an elite rice variety Huajingxian74 (HJX74) was evaluated for heading date. From this library, two SSSLs, W23-03-8-9-1 and W15-03-1-31, with substitution segments on chromosome 3 and 2, respectively, were found to have significantly different heading(More)
Understanding the effects of electron-electron interactions in half-metallic magnets (HMs), which have band structures with one gapped spin channel and one metallic channel, poses fundamental theoretical issues as well as having importance for their potential applications. Here we use determinant quantum Monte Carlo to study the impacts of an on-site(More)
The fragrance gene plays an important role in high-quality rice varieties and has been widely used in breeding programs. Using a random sample of 370 individuals from an F2 segregating population developed from a cross between a japonica rice variety 9407 with fragrant flavor and an indica variety IRBB60, the fgr locus was mapped on chromosome 8 between SSR(More)
The Eu³⁺, Bi³⁺ ions co-doped Y₂O₃ phosphor has been synthesized by the conventional solid-state reaction method, and its photoluminescence (PL) spectra are investigated for application in white light emitting diode (LED). The Eu³⁺, Bi³⁺ ions co-doped Y₂O₃ phosphor showed a characteristic emissions with greenish blue and red color upon the near-UV light in(More)
