The Wx gene encoding granule-bound starch synthase is responsible for the biosynthesis of amylose, which plays an important role in determining rice eating and cooking quality. However, the functional evaluation of different Wx alleles remains unclear. In the present study, a set of near-isogenic lines (NILs) carrying four different Wx alleles—Wx a , Wx b ,(More)
NLRC5 is an important regulator in innate immune responses. However, the ability of NLRC5 to inhibit NF-κB activation is controversial in different cell types. How dynamic modification of NLRC5 shapes NF-κB signaling remains unknown. We demonstrated that NLRC5 undergoes robust ubiquitination by TRAF2/6 after lipopolysaccharide treatment, which leads to(More)
