Development and mapping of 2240 new SSR markers for rice (Oryza sativa L.).
A total of 2414 new di-, tri- and tetra-nucleotide non-redundant SSR primer pairs, representing 2240 unique marker loci, have been developed and experimentally validated for rice (Oryza sativa L.).Expand

Ehd1, a B-type response regulator in rice, confers short-day promotion of flowering and controls FT-like gene expression independently of Hd1.
Two evolutionarily distant plant species, rice (Oryza sativa L.), a short-day (SD) plant, and Arabidopsis thaliana, a long-day plant, share a conserved genetic network controlling photoperiodicExpand

Hd3a, a rice ortholog of the Arabidopsis FT gene, promotes transition to flowering downstream of Hd1 under short-day conditions.
Heading date 3a (Hd3a) has been detected as a heading-date-related quantitative trait locus in a cross between rice cultivars Nipponbare and Kasalath. A previous study revealed that the KasalathExpand

A silicon transporter in rice
Silicon is beneficial to plant growth and helps plants to overcome abiotic and biotic stresses by preventing lodging (falling over) and increasing resistance to pests and diseases, as well as otherExpand

Adaptation of photoperiodic control pathways produces short-day flowering in rice
The photoperiodic control of flowering is one of the important developmental processes of plants because it is directly related to successful reproduction. Although the molecular genetic analysis ofExpand

Deletion in a gene associated with grain size increased yields during rice domestication
The domestication of crops involves a complex process of selection in plant evolution and is associated with changes in the DNA regulating agronomically important traits. Here we report the cloningExpand

An SNP Caused Loss of Seed Shattering During Rice Domestication
Loss of seed shattering was a key event in the domestication of major cereals. We revealed that the qSH1 gene, a major quantitative trait locus of seed shattering in rice, encodes a BEL1-typeExpand

Phytochrome mediates the external light signal to repress FT orthologs in photoperiodic flowering of rice.
Phytochromes confer the photoperiodic control of flowering in rice (Oryza sativa), a short-day plant. To better understand the molecular mechanisms of day-length recognition, we examined theExpand

Genome mapping, molecular markers and marker-assisted selection in crop plants
Applications of genome mapping and marker-assisted selection (MAS) in crop improvement are reviewed. The following aspects are considered: a comparison of the choice of markers available for theExpand
