The peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is an important oilseed crop in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. However, little about the molecular biology of the peanut is currently known. Recently, next-generation sequencing technology, termed RNA-seq, has provided a powerful approach for analysing the transcriptome, and for shedding light on the(More)
Three evolutionarily closely related WRKY-domain transcription factors WRKY18, WRKY40, and WRKY60 in Arabidopsis were previously identified as negative abscisic acid (ABA) signalling regulators, of which WRKY40 regulates ABI4 and ABI5 expression, but it remains unclear whether and how the three transcription factors cooperate to regulate expression of ABI4(More)
In this study, we identified a defense-related major latex protein (MLP) from upland cotton (designated GhMLP28) and investigated its functional mechanism. GhMLP28 transcripts were ubiquitously present in cotton plants, with higher accumulation in the root. Expression of the GhMLP28 gene was induced by Verticillium dahliae inoculation and was responsive to(More)
The light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b-binding (LHCB) proteins are the apoproteins of the light-harvesting complex of photosystem II. In the present study, we observed that downregulation of any of the six LHCB genes resulted in abscisic acid (ABA)-insensitive phenotypes in seed germination and post-germination growth, demonstrating that LHCB proteins are(More)
Vernalization-induced flowering is a cold-relevant adaptation in many species, but little is known about the genetic basis behind in Orchidaceae species. Here, we reported a collection of 15017 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) from the vernalized axillary buds of an Orchidaceae species, Dendrobium nobile, which were assembled for 9616 unique gene clusters.(More)
This paper is concerned with the stability of zeros of the discrete-time mul-tivariable system composed of a generalized sample hold function (GSHF), a continuous-time plant with the degrees of infinite elementary divisors being two or three, i.e., µ 1 = · · · = µ m−k = 2 and µ m−k+1 = · · · = µ m = 3 (k = 1,. .. , m, 0 ≤ k ≤ m − 1), and a sampler in(More)
Our previous study demonstrated that a chloroplast co-chaperonin 20 (CPN20), one of the interaction partners of the magnesium-protoporphyrin IX chelatase H subunit (CHLH/ABAR), negatively regulates ABA signaling at the same node with ABAR but upstream of WRKY40 transcription repressor in Arabidopsis thaliana. In the present experiment, we showed that ABA(More)
Remarkable improvements in the stability properties of discrete system zeros may be achieved by using a new design of the fractional-order hold (FROH) circuit. This paper first analyzes asymptotic behaviors of the limiting zeros, as the sampling period T tends to zero, of the sampled-data models on the basis of the normal form representation for(More)
