A second generation framework for the analysis of microsatellites in expressed sequence tags and the development of EST-SSR markers for a conifer, Cryptomeria japonica
TLDR
An open scheme for analyzing microsatellites or simple sequence repeats in expressed sequence tags (ESTs) and developing EST-SSR markers from reads collected by Sanger sequencing and pyrosequencing of sugi (Cryptomeria japonica), which results will be useful in genomic analyses of conifers and other non-model species. Expand
Characterization of full-length enriched expressed sequence tags of stress-treated poplar leaves.
TLDR
The first collection of full-length enriched stress-related ESTs of poplar are reported and environmental stress responses of forest trees in the light of comparative genomics are discussed. Expand
Ancestral MADS box genes in Sugi, Cryptomeria japonica D. Don (Taxodiaceae), homologous to the B function genes in angiosperms.
TLDR
The cladistic analysis suggests that the gene duplication event which generated B function gene lineages predates the divergence of angiosperms and gymnos perms and that the Gene duplication which produced the two genes of C. japonica occurred in an ancestral conifer species. Expand
Genetic mosaics in the massive persisting rhizosphere colony “shiro” of the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete Tricholoma matsutake
TLDR
Using inter-retrotransposon amplified polymorphism analysis, data suggested that the dispersal of spores through sexual reproduction may have been more prevalent than generally accepted in T. matsutake to bring mosaicism and coordination of heterologous genets within the shiro. Expand
The construction of a high-density linkage map for identifying SNP markers that are tightly linked to a nuclear-recessive major gene for male sterility in Cryptomeria japonica D. Don
TLDR
A high-density saturated genetic linkage map was constructed to facilitate the identification of markers that are tightly linked to a major recessive male-sterile gene (ms1) for MAS in C. japonica, a species that is important in Japanese afforestation but which causes serious social pollinosis problems. Expand
Characterization of expressed sequence tags from a full-length enriched cDNA library of Cryptomeria japonica male strobili
TLDR
A full-length enriched cDNA library derived from C. japonica male strobili provides information on expression of genes during the development of male reproductive organs and identifies twelve genes for MADS-box proteins among these transcription factors. Expand
Isolation and functional analysis of the CjNdly gene, a homolog in Cryptomeria japonica of FLORICAULA/LEAFY genes.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the CjNdly gene may have important roles in flower development in Japanese cedar, resembling those of its angiosperm homologs, as well as in transgenic tobacco plants induced precocious flowering of regenerating shoots on agar-solidified medium. Expand
Isolation and characterization of native Cry j 3 from Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) pollen
TLDR
The aims of this study were to isolate native Cry j 3 and assess its immunoglobulin E (IgE)‐binding capacity in patients with Japanese cedar pollinosis. Expand
Characterization of genes for novel thaumatin-like proteins in Cryptomeria japonica.
TLDR
The results suggest that the roles of TLPs and the cascades that regulate their expression differ among the members of the TLP family in C. japonica. Expand
Demonstration of Genome-Wide Association Studies for Identifying Markers for Wood Property and Male Strobili Traits in Cryptomeria japonica
TLDR
The results suggest that GWAS has potential for use in future breeding programs in C. japonica, based on a marker approach, and 6 SNPs were found to have significant associations with the variations in phenotype, which may identify novel QTLs. Expand
