Water stress causes considerable yield losses in sugarcane. To investigate differentially expressed genes under water stress, a pot experiment was performed with the sugarcane variety GT21 at three water-deficit levels (mild, moderate, and severe) during the elongation stage and gene expression was analyzed using microarray technology.

Abscisic acid (ABA) plays important roles in adaptive responses to various environmental stresses. The rate-limiting step in ABA biosynthesis is the oxidative cleavage of cis-epoxycarotenoids, which is catalyzed by 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase (NCED). In this experiment, a full-length cDNA encoding NCED gene was cloned by RT-PCR and RACE from sugarcane(More)
