Sequence analysis of the genome of the unicellular cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. strain PCC6803. II. Sequence determination of the entire genome and assignment of potential protein-coding regions.
The sequence determination of the entire genome of the Synechocystis sp. strain PCC6803 was completed. The total length of the genome finally confirmed was 3,573,470 bp, including the previouslyExpand

The genome of the mesopolyploid crop species Brassica rapa
TLDR
The annotation and analysis of the draft genome sequence of Brassica rapa accession Chiifu-401-42, a Chinese cabbage, and used Arabidopsis thaliana as an outgroup for investigating the consequences of genome triplication, such as structural and functional evolution. Expand
The tomato genome sequence provides insights into fleshy fruit evolution
TLDR
A high-quality genome sequence of domesticated tomato is presented, a draft sequence of its closest wild relative, Solanum pimpinellifolium, is compared, and the two tomato genomes are compared to each other and to the potato genome. Expand
Identification of CRE1 as a cytokinin receptor from Arabidopsis
TLDR
Evidence is provided that cytokinins can activate CRE1 to initiate phosphorelay signalling, and this work identifies Arabidopsis cre1 (cytokinin response 1) mutants, which exhibited reduced responses to cytokinin responses. Expand
Regulation of drought tolerance by gene manipulation of 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase, a key enzyme in abscisic acid biosynthesis in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the expression of an NCED gene of Arabidopsis, AtNCED3, is induced by drought stress and controls the level of endogenous ABA under drought-stressed conditions. Expand
Plant recognition of symbiotic bacteria requires two LysM receptor-like kinases
TLDR
Two LysM-type serine/threonine receptor kinase genes, NFR1 and NFR5 are described, enabling the model legume Lotus japonicus to recognize its bacterial microsymbiont Mesorhizobium loti and their role in the mechanism establishing susceptibility of the legume root for bacterial infection is demonstrated. Expand
Complete genomic sequence of nitrogen-fixing symbiotic bacterium Bradyrhizobium japonicum USDA110.
TLDR
Observations suggest plasticity of the B. japonicum genome is probably due to complex genome rearrangements such as horizontal transfer and insertion of various DNA elements, and to homologous recombination. Expand
Processing of ATG8s, Ubiquitin-Like Proteins, and Their Deconjugation by ATG4s Are Essential for Plant Autophagy
TLDR
The phenotypic analysis of atg44a4b-1 indicated that plant autophagy contributes to the development of a root system under conditions of nutrient limitation and biochemical analyses provided evidence that autophagic bodies in the vacuoles of wild-type roots are detected but not in those of atG4a-1 in the presence of concanamycin A, a V-ATPase inhibitor. Expand
Complete genome structure of the nitrogen-fixing symbiotic bacterium Mesorhizobium loti.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the genome of a symbiotic bacterium Mesorhizobium loti strain MAFF303099 was determined and suggested that the symbiotic island as well as the plasmids originated and were transmitted from other genetic systems. Expand
