Flowering time is an important trait for ornamental plants, and flowering regulation has thus been both a focus of and challenge to researchers. Lagerstroemia indica is an important summer flowering tree in China and has been introduced abroad as a key parent of new cultivars; no previous reports have addressed the regulation of flowering time in this(More)
Catalpa bungei is a deciduous tree native to China. It is characterized as fast growing, being highly adaptable, and having excellent wood qualities. To better understand potential mechanisms involved in adventitious root (AR) formation, we performed transcriptome analysis of softwood cuttings of C. bungei ‘Yu-1’ at three stages of AR formation using the(More)
Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is an important global source of plant lipids and protein for food and other industries. Salinity is an abiotic stress that affects sunflower yield. Although recent studies have revealed that the cytochrome P450 (CYP) 93 family is involved in biotic and abiotic stresses, the relationship between the CYP93A gene and salt stress(More)
Lagerstroemia indica is a popular woody ornamental plant throughout the world. However, relatively little is known about the molecular processes regulating leaf color in L. indica compared with other ornamental plants. Although yellow leaf mutants from various organisms have been well characterized, L. indica yellow leaf mutant has not yet been reported. In(More)
Crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) is a woody ornamental plant popularly grown because of its long-lasting, midsummer blooms and beautiful colors. The GL1 dominant mutant is the first chlorophyll-less mutant identified in crape myrtle. It was obtained from a natural yellow leaf bud mutation. We previously revealed that leaf color of the GL1 mutant is(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Catalpa bungei (Bignoniaceae) is a deciduous tree native to China. We developed microsatellite markers for C. bungei to investigate its population genetics. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred seventy-seven expressed sequence tag (EST)-simple sequence repeat (SSR) primer pairs were isolated and characterized using next-generation(More)
Clematis apiifolia, belonging to the Clematis L., is a woody vine native to China. It is characterized as heat resistant and fast growing. To better understand potential mechanisms involved in heat-stress responses in Clematis, we characterized the digital gene expression signatures of C. apiifolia under heat-stress conditions. Using RNA sequencing(More)
