In order to study Brassica napus fatty acid (FA) metabolism and relevant regulatory networks, a systematic identification of fatty acid (FA) biosynthesis-related genes was conducted. Following gene identification, gene expression profiles during B. napus seed development and FA metabolism were performed by cDNA chip hybridization (>8000 EST clones from(More)
Brassinosteroids (BRs) are perceived by transmembrane receptors and play vital roles in plant growth and development, as well as cell in responses to environmental stimuli. The transmembrane receptor BRI1 can directly bind to brassinolide (BL), and BAK1 interacts with BRI1 to enhance the BRI1-mediated BR signaling. Our previous studies indicated that a(More)
The Shanghai RAPESEED Database (RAPESEED, http://rapeseed.plantsignal.cn/) was created to provide the solid platform for functional genomics studies of oilseed crops with the emphasis on seed development and fatty acid metabolism. The RAPESEED includes the resource of 8462 unique ESTs, of which 3526 clones are with full length cDNA; the expression profiles(More)
Membrane Steroid Binding Protein 1 (MSBP1) can bind steroids in vitro and negatively regulates brassinosteroid (BR) signaling, as well as cell elongation and expansion. Detailed analysis of the MSBP1 expression pattern based on quantitative real-time RT-PCR and promoter-GUS fusion studies revealed that MSBP1 expression in hypocotyls is stimulated by various(More)
