The rubber tree genome reveals new insights into rubber production and species adaptation
The Para rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) is an economically important tropical tree species that produces natural rubber, an essential industrial raw material. Here we present a high-quality genomeExpand

Identification of novel microRNAs in Hevea brasiliensis and computational prediction of their targets
BackgroundPlants respond to external stimuli through fine regulation of gene expression partially ensured by small RNAs. Of these, microRNAs (miRNAs) play a crucial role. They negatively regulateExpand

Identification of the Hevea brasiliensis AP2/ERF superfamily by RNA sequencing
BackgroundRubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) laticifers are the source of natural rubber. Rubber production depends on endogenous and exogenous ethylene (ethephon). AP2/ERF transcription factors, andExpand

Characterization of leafy cotyledon1-like during embryogenesis in Theobroma cacao L.
Theobroma cacao L., an economically important crop for developing countries, can be experimentally propagated by somatic embryogenesis. Because of their potential roles in embryogenesis, a geneExpand

Molecular characterization of new members of the Hevea brasiliensis hevein multigene family and analysis of their promoter region in rice.
The cloning of hevein genes from Hevea brasiliensis was undertaken with the objective to isolate useful promoters to drive transgene expression in genetically engineered rubber tree. Four differentExpand

The small RNA profile in latex from Hevea brasiliensis trees is affected by tapping panel dryness.
Natural rubber is harvested by tapping Hevea brasiliensis (Willd. ex A. Juss.) Müll. Arg. Harvesting stress can lead to tapping panel dryness (TPD). MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are induced by abiotic stressExpand

Transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of the jasmonate signalling pathway in response to abiotic and harvesting stress in Hevea brasiliensis
BackgroundLatex harvesting in Hevea brasiliensis amounts to strong abiotic stress that can cause a halt in production in the most susceptible clones. Although the role of jasmonic acid has beenExpand

Some ethylene biosynthesis and AP2/ERF genes reveal a specific pattern of expression during somatic embryogenesis in Hevea brasiliensis
BackgroundEthylene production and signalling play an important role in somatic embryogenesis, especially for species that are recalcitrant in in vitro culture. The AP2/ERF superfamily has beenExpand

Isolation of three members of the multigene family encoding ACC oxidases in Hevea brasiliensis and investigation of their responses to ethylene stimulation and wounding
Ethylene is a major stimulating factor for natural rubber production in Hevea brasiliensis and is often applied in the form of Ethephon, an ethylene releaser. In a positive feedback type mechanism,Expand
