The overexpression of OsNAC9 alters the root architecture of rice plants enhancing drought resistance and grain yield under field conditions.
Drought conditions limit agricultural production by preventing crops from reaching their genetically predetermined maximum yields. Here, we present the results of field evaluations of riceExpand

OsNAC5 overexpression enlarges root diameter in rice plants leading to enhanced drought tolerance and increased grain yield in the field.
Drought conditions are among the most serious challenges to crop production worldwide. Here, we report the results of field evaluations of transgenic rice plants overexpressing OsNAC5, under theExpand

Overexpression of OsERF48 causes regulation of OsCML16, a calmodulin‐like protein gene that enhances root growth and drought tolerance
Summary The AP2/ERF family is a plant‐specific transcription factor family whose members have been associated with various developmental processes and stress tolerance. Here, we functionallyExpand

Accumulation of trehalose increases soluble sugar contents in rice plants conferring tolerance to drought and salt stress
Trehalose is a nonreducing sugar composed of two glucose units linked in an α,α-1,1-glycosidic linkage. Present in a wide variety of organisms, this sugar may serve as a source of energy and carbonExpand

The use of JIP test to evaluate drought-tolerance of transgenic rice overexpressing OsNAC10
In this study, the JIP test was exploited to assess drought-tolerance of transgenic rice overexpressing OsNAC10. Two types of promoters, RCc3 (root-specific) and GOS2 (constitutive), were used toExpand

JIP Analysis on Rice (Oryza sativa cv Nipponbare) Grown under Limited Nitrogen Conditions
Nitrogen deficiency significantly reduces the CO2 assimilation capacity of plants and the quantum yield of photosynthesis. Here, we employed the JIP test to determine the effects ofExpand

Analysis of the APX, PGD1 and R1G1B constitutive gene promoters in various organs over three homozygous generations of transgenic rice plants
We have previously characterized the constitutively active promoters of the APX, PGD1 and R1G1B genes in rice (Park et al. 2010 in J Exp Bot 61:2459–2467). To have potential crop biotechnologyExpand

Characterization of the root-predominant gene promoter HPX1 in transgenic rice plants
Gene promoter(s) specialized in root tissues is an important component for crop biotechnology. In our current study, we report results of promoter analysis of the HPX1, a gene expressed predominantlyExpand

Transgenic overexpression of UIP1, an interactor of the 3′ untranslated region of the Rubisco small subunit mRNA, increases rice tolerance to drought
Gene regulation at the post-transcriptional level is a well-organized process to adjust plants in response to environmental changes. Here, we identified a novel RNA-binding protein (RBP) possessing aExpand
