The AP2/ERF family is one of the largest groups of transcription factors in plants. Members of this family are involved in various biological processes, such as plant development, pathogen defense and stress responses. Here, we identified a total of 289 AP2/ERF transcription factors from Chinese cabbage based on the genome sequence. According to sequence(More)
Accurate normalization of gene expression data is an absolute prerequisite to obtain reliable results in qPCR analysis. Oenanthe javanica, an aquatic perennial herb, belongs to the Oenanthe genus in Apiaceae family, with known medicinal properties. In the current study, O. javanica was subjected to hormone stimuli (gibberellin, salicylic acid, methyl(More)
Celery (Apium graveolens L.) is one of the most important and widely grown vegetables in the Apiaceae family. Due to the lack of comprehensive genomic resources, research on celery has mainly utilized physiological and biochemical approaches, rather than molecular biology, to study this crop. Transcriptome sequencing has become an efficient and economic(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs of 20 to 24 nucleotides that regulate gene expression and responses to biotic and abiotic stress. Till now, no reports have previously been published concerning miRNAs in celery. Two small RNAs libraries were constructed from two celery varieties, ‘Jinnan Shiqin’ and ‘Ventura’, and characterized by deep(More)
HSF family transcription factors were analyzed in genome of Chinese cabbage. Chromosomal locations showed that duplication might result in expansion. Response to abiotic stresses was elucidated in Chinese cabbage varieties. The major heat shock factors regulating the heat stress response are heat shock transcription factors (HSFs), which interact with heat(More)
Heat shock factors (HSFs) play key roles in the response to abiotic stress in eukaryotes. In this study, 35 DcHSFs were identified from carrot (Daucus carota L.) based on the carrot genome database. All 35 DcHSFs were divided into three classes (A, B, and C) according to the structure and phylogenetic relationships of four different plants, namely,(More)
Oenanthe javanica is an aquatic perennial herb with known medicinal properties and an edible vegetable with high vitamin and mineral content. The understanding of the biology of O. javanica is limited by the absence of information on its genome, transcriptome, and small RNA. In this study, transcriptome sequencing and small RNA sequencing were performed to(More)
BACKGROUND Improvement of quality of life has been one of goals in health care for people living with bladder cancer. Meanwhile, positive psycho-social variables in oncology field have increasingly received attention. However, the assessment of quality of life of bladder cancer patients and the integrative effects of positive psycho-social variables has(More)
A suitable reference gene is an important prerequisite for guarantying accurate and reliable results in qPCR analysis. Celery is one of the representative vegetable in Apiaceae and is widely cultivated and consumed in the world. However, no reports have been previously published concerning reference genes in celery. In this study, the expression stabilities(More)
Parsley, one of the most important vegetables in the Apiaceae family, is widely used in the food, medicinal, and cosmetic industries. Recent studies on parsley mainly focus on its chemical composition, and further research involving the analysis of the plant's gene functions and expressions is required. qPCR is a powerful method for detecting very low(More)
