Non-cell-autonomous microRNA165 acts in a dose-dependent manner to regulate multiple differentiation status in the Arabidopsis root
A previously unidentified role ofmiR165 in the differentiation of a broad range of root cell types is revealed and it is suggested that endodermis-derived miR165 acts in a dose-dependent manner to control multiple differentiation status in the Arabidopsis root. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Podostemaceae: implications for taxonomy of major groups
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of matK sequences for 657 samples showed that plants of Tristicha (Tristichoideae) and of Weddellina (Weddellinoideae), which are currently treated as monospecific, had great matK differentiation equivalent to at least interspecific variation. Expand
An Evolutionarily Conserved Plant RKD Factor Controls Germ Cell Differentiation
Analysis of the factors that govern germ cell formation in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha suggests that RKD factors are evolutionarily conserved regulators of germ cell differentiation in land plants. Expand
Molecular phylogeny, taxonomy and biogeography of Malaccotristicha australis comb. nov. (syn. Tristicha australis) (Podostemaceae)
Comparison of morphology and molecular phylogeny show that Tristicha australis in northern Australia is most closely related to Malaccotristicha malayana, and consequently the nomenclatural combination of MalaccOTristicho-Australis is made. Expand
Expression of SHOOT MERISTEMLESS, WUSCHEL, and ASYMMETRIC LEAVES1 Homologs in the Shoots of Podostemaceae: Implications for the Evolution of Novel Shoot Organogenesis[W]
The results suggest that the leaf of Podostemoideae is initiated as a SAM and differentiates into a single apical leaf/bract, resulting in the evolution of novel shoot-leaf mixed organs in Podostemaceae. Expand
Developmental morphology of the shoot in Weddellina squamulosa and implications for shoot evolution in the Podostemaceae.
Weddellinoideae, like Tristichoideae), have a shoot apicalMeristem, leading to the hypothesis that the meristem was lost in Podostemoideae and that the shoot apicals disappeared in the early evolution of Podostemaceae. Expand
Developmental morphology of seedling and shoot and phylogenetic relationship of Diplobryum koyamae (Podostemaceae).
We demonstrated that saltational evolution was recurrent in the body plans of seedlings of the aquatic angiosperm Podostemaceae, in contrast to other angiosperms with seedlings having almost commonExpand
Paracladopus chanthaburiensis, a new species of Podostemaceae from Thailand, with notes on its morphology, phylogeny and distribution
The phylogeny of P. chanthaburiensis is consistent with the hypothesis that the Cladopus-Paracladopus clade originated in Thailand or the neighboring region, like the Hanseniella-Hydrobryum-Thawatchaia clade. Expand
Fate of HIV-1 cDNA intermediates during reverse transcription is dictated by transcription initiation site of virus genomic RNA
It is demonstrated that the 5′-G number that corresponds to HIV-1 transcription initiation site was critical for successful strand-transfer of -sscDNA during reverse transcription. Expand
Comparative anatomy of root meristem and root cap in some species of Podostemaceae and the evolution of root dorsiventrality.
An anatomical comparison of the root apical meristems and root caps of 33 species that represent the major lineages of the Podostemaceae found evolutionary changes in the meristem preceded the specialization of external root morphologies. Expand
