Molecular characterization of Brassicanapus NAC domain transcriptional activators induced in response to biotic and abiotic stress
Subtractive expressed sequence tag analysis and screening of cDNA libraries derived from Brassica napus leaves subjected to mechanical wounding, flea beetle feeding or cold temperatures revealed… Expand
New perspectives on proanthocyanidin biochemistry and molecular regulation.
Our understanding of proanthocyanidin (syn. condensed tannin) synthesis has been recently extended by substantial developments concerning both structural and regulatory genes. A gene encoding… Expand
Arabidopsis mutant sk156 reveals complex regulation of SPL15 in a miR156-controlled gene network
BackgroundThe Arabidopsis microRNA156 (miR156) regulates 11 members of the SQUAMOSA PROMOTER BINDING PROTEIN LIKE (SPL) family by base pairing to complementary target mRNAs. Each SPL gene further… Expand
Expression of Anthocyanins and Proanthocyanidins after Transformation of Alfalfa with Maize Lc12
Three anthocyanin regulatory genes of maize (Zea mays; Lc, B-Peru, and C1) were introduced into alfalfa (Medicago sativa) in a strategy designed to stimulate the flavonoid pathway and alter the… Expand

A precursor of miR156 (MsmiR156d) was cloned and overexpressed in alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) as a means to enhance alfalfa biomass yield. Of the five predicted SPL genes encoded by the alfalfa… Expand
Histochemical characterisation of unextractable seed coat pigments and quantification of extractable lignin in the Brassicaceae
The differences determined by in situ histochemical staining and thioglycolic lignin analyses provided a new view of seed coat composition in a range of yellow- and brown-seeded germplasm of the… Expand
Expression of an alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) ethylene response factor gene MsERF8 in tobacco plants enhances resistance to salinity
Ethylene response factors (ERF) play crucial roles in plant development and response to stresses. Here, a novel cDNA fragment (MsERF8) encoding an ERF protein with an AP2 domain was isolated and… Expand

Anthocyanins, other flavonoids, and phenolic acids belong to a group of plant natural products with antioxidant activity and may play important roles in plant protection against biotic and abiotic… Expand
Analysis of the metabolome and transcriptome of Brassica carinata seedlings after lithium chloride exposure
Exposure of B. carinata seedlings to increasing concentrations of a non-physiological ion, lithium, showed significant effects on the germination rate, root length, chlorophyll content and fresh… Expand
An Insight into microRNA156 Role in Salinity Stress Responses of Alfalfa
Salinity is one of the major abiotic stresses affecting alfalfa productivity. Developing salinity tolerant alfalfa genotypes could contribute to sustainable crop production. The functions of… Expand
