Starch branching enzyme IIb in wheat is expressed at low levels in the endosperm compared to other cereals and encoded at a non-syntenic locus
In wheat, the ratio of SBEIIb and SBEiia expression are inversely related to the expression levels observed in maize and rice, but the genes for SBE IIa and S BE IIb are both located on the long arm of chromosome 2 in wheat, in a position not expected from rice–maize–wheat synteny.
EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS AMONG MULTIPLE MODES OF CELL DIVISION IN THE GENUS NANNOCHLORIS (CHLOROPHYTA) REVEALED BY GENOME SIZE, ACTIN GENE MULTIPLICITY, AND PHYLOGENY
Phylogenetic analyses of partial actin gene sequences suggest that autosporulation is the ancestral mode of cell division in Nannochloris species, which seems to be among the smallest for free‐living eukaryotes.
Late type of daughter cell wall synthesis in one of the Chlorellaceae, Parachlorella kessleri (Chlorophyta, Trebouxiophyceae)
The daughter cell wall synthesis during autosporulation in the four species of Chlorellaceae can be classified into two types—the early and the late types.
Regeneration and maturation of daughter cell walls in the autospore-forming green alga Chlorella vulgaris (Chlorophyta, Trebouxiophyceae)
Cell-wall synthesis in Chlorella vulgaris, an autospore-forming alga, was observed using the cell wall-specific fluorescent dye Fluostain I. The observation suggested two clearly distinguishable…
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PRESENCE OF A MOTHER CELL WALL AND SPECIATION IN THE UNICELLULAR MICROALGA NANNOCHLORIS (CHLOROPHYTA) 1
It is suggested that autosporulation is the ancestral mode of cell division in Nannochloris and that nonautosporulative mechanisms, such as binary fission and budding, evolved secondarily.
Patterns of asexual reproduction in Nannochloris bacillaris and Marvania geminata (Chlorophyta, Trebouxiophyceae)
The results suggest that autosporulation is the ancestral mode of cell division in Trebouxiophyceae, and that binary fission and budding evolved because of a delay in the degeneration and shedding of the mother cell wall.
Complementation of sugary-1 Phenotype in Rice Endosperm with the Wheat Isoamylase1 Gene Supports a Direct Role for Isoamylase1 in Amylopectin Biosynthesis
Small but significant differences were found in the amylopectin chain-length distribution, gelatinization temperatures, and A-type x-ray diffraction patterns of the starches from lines expressing TaISA1 when compared with wild-type rice starch, although in the first two parameters, the effect was proportional to the expression level of TaISA.
Chromosome Dynamics Visualized with an Anti-Centromeric Histone H3 Antibody in Allium
Centromeric localization of DNA sequences isolated from welsh onion by chromatin immuno-precipitation (ChIP) using the antibody was confirmed by fluorescence in situ hybridization and ChIP-quantitative PCR.
Isolation and molecular characterization of rbcS in the unicellular green alga Nannochloris bacillaris (Chlorophyta, Trebouxiophyceae)
The small subunit of the chloroplast enzyme ribulose‐1,5‐bisphosphate carboxyase/oxygenase (Rubisco) is encoded by rbcS, and the NbrBCS1 and NbrbcS1‐2 intron conserved in green algae and embryophytes might be an ancestral intron from nuclear‐encoded rBCS.
The eln3 gene involved in fruiting body morphogenesis of Coprinus cinereus encodes a putative membrane protein with a general glycosyltransferase domain.
