Recently, the truncated hemoglobin gene (trHb) was discovered in plant species, however, its role has not yet been determined. In this study, the gene expression of wheat trHb (TatrHb) was analyzed under various biotic and abiotic stresses. TatrHb transcript levels increased in NaCl-treated leaves and gibberellic acid (GA3)-treated roots. In addition,(More)
Brachypodium distachyon has been highlighted as a model monocot plant with small genome and short life cycle. Biofuels are being developed as renewable energy sources to replace fossil fuels. Bioethanol production is negatively correlated with lignin content. Here, Brachypodium was acutely or chronically irradiated at doses of 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 Gy.(More)
Brachypodium distachyon (Brachypodium) is a novel model plant for structural and functional genomic studies of Poaceae. Brachypodium has many favorable features, such as small size, small genome, short life cycle, and easy handling. Bioethanol, as renewable resource, has been widely studied as a replacement for fossil fuels. Lignin is involved with the(More)
Cereal seed storage proteins are encoded by complex multigene families and their subunit profiles are highly related to end-use qualities. Each fraction of albumin and hordein was extracted and its subunit profile was evaluated in related to malt and grain quality parameters. The purpose of this study was to provide selection criteria for high quality(More)
Brachypodium distachyon has been proposed as a model plant for agriculturally important cereal crops such as wheat and barley. Seed coat colour change from brown-red to yellow was observed in a mutant line (142-3) of B. distachyon, which was induced by chronic gamma radiation. In addition, dwarf phenotypes were observed in each of the lines 142-3, 421-2,(More)
BACKGROUND Brachypodium distachyon (L.) Beauv. is a monocotyledonous model plant that has been studied to understand a range of biological phenomena for lignocellulosic bioethanol feedstocks and other cereal crops. The lignin makes its cell walls recalcitrant to saccharification, constituting the main barrier to lignocellulosic bioethanol production. In(More)
It has been found that the reverse leakage current of AlGaN/GaN Schottky contacts can be significantly reduced by a high temperature furnace thermal treatment after device fabrication. The electrical characteristics were found to be changed by the thermal treatment in a device. By annealing in a nitrogen ambient furnace at 550 ℃ for 60 min, an off-state(More)
Brachypodium distachyon (Brachypodium) is a novel model plant for structural and functional genomic studies of temperate grasses. Brachypodium as a model plant has many favorable features, such as small size, small genome, short life cycle, self-fertility, and simple growth requirements. The genome sequence of the standard line Bd21 has been released and(More)
