Trehalose-producing transgenic tobacco plants show improved growth performance under drought stress
TLDR
Chlorophyll fluorescence analysis of drought-stressed plants showed a higher photochemical quenching (qQ) and a higher ratio of variable fluorescence over maximal fluorescence (Fv/Fm), indicating a more efficient photosynthesis. Expand
Requirement for cytoplasmic protein synthesis during circadian peaks of transcription of chloroplast-encoded genes in Chlamydomonas
TLDR
Two functionally different types of chloroplast transcription in Chlamydomonas are defined, basal (cycloheximide-insensitive) and clock-induced ( cyclohexIMide-sensitive), and indicate that the relative contribution of each type to the overall transcription of a given gene are not identical for all genes. Expand
Development of a new constitutive expression system for the transformation of the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum
TLDR
Results indicate that the P. tricornutum EF2 promoter can be used for the expression of target genes in genetically transformed P.tricornutsum and C. reinhardtii. Expand
Control of lhc gene transcription by the circadian clock in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
TLDR
It was shown that the half-life of lhca1 mRNA (and rbcS2) is short (1–2h) and may also vary somewhat during a cycle, and it was concluded that a cellular, circadian clock regulates lhc gene expression in C. reinhardtii. Expand
Transcriptome analysis and identification of genes associated with ω-3 fatty acid biosynthesis in Perilla frutescens (L.) var. frutescens
TLDR
This first report on building transcriptomes from perilla seeds provides the first comprehensive expression profiles for genes involved in seed oil biosynthesis and indicates that the sequence collection represented a major transcriptomic resource for perilla that added valuable genetic information in order Lamiales.

Expression of the Tobacco Non-symbiotic Class 1 Hemoglobin Gene Hb1 Reduces Cadmium Levels by Modulating Cd Transporter Expression Through Decreasing Nitric Oxide and ROS Level in Arabidopsis
TLDR
The expression of the tobacco hemoglobin gene NtHb1 in Arabidopsis showed higher cadmium (Cd) tolerance and lower accumulations of Cd, nitric oxide (NO), and reactive oxygen species (ROS) like hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Expand
Novel aspects of the regulation of a cDNA (Arf1) from Chlamydomonas with high sequence identity to animal ADP-ribosylation factor 1
TLDR
The biphasic pattern of Arf1 mRNA accumulation during LD cycles is due to regulation by two different factors, light (which requires photosynthesis) and the circadian clock, and these studies identify a novel pattern of expression for a GTP-binding protein gene. Expand
Effect of Brevibacterium iodinum RS16 and Methylobacterium oryzae CBMB20 Inoculation on Seed Germination and Early Growth of Maize and Sorghum-sudangrass hybrid Seedling under Different Salinity
TLDR
The results of this study could help in development of potential bioinoculants that may be suitable for crop production under saline conditions. Expand
Expression of tobacco cDNA encoding phytochelatin synthase promotes tolerance to and accumulation of Cd and As inSaccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
It is concluded that NtPCS1 plays a role in tolerance to and the accumulation of both toxic metals inSaccharomyces cerevisiae. Expand
Characterization of a cDNA encoding the 20-kDa photosystem I light-harvesting polypeptide of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
TLDR
Sequence comparisons indicate that P22 has significantly greater identity with the Type-I LHCI protein of tomato, compared to other LHC proteins, which suggests that the divergence of L HCI proteins into the classes found in higher plants may have occurred early in evolution, prior to the separation of green algae and land plants.
