The molybdenum cofactor sulfurase gene ( AnMCSU ) was cloned from xerophytic desert plant Ammopiptanthus nanus and validated for its function of tolerance toward abiotic stresses by heterologous expression in Arabidopsis thaliana. Molybdenum cofactor sulfurase participates in catalyzing biosynthesis of abscisic acid, which plays a crucial role in the(More)
A phospholipase Dα gene ( AnPLDα ) was cloned from xerophytic desert plant Ammopiptanthus nanus and its overexpression enhanced salt tolerance of a PLDα1 deficient Arabidopsis mutant. Phospholipase Dα (PLDα) hydrolyzes phosphatidylcholine to produce phosphatidic acid, and plays crucial role in plant tolerance to abiotic stress. In this study, a(More)
Phospholipase D hydrolyzes phospholipids into phophatidic acid and choline, and plays important roles in growth, development, and stress response. Genome-wide identification for the PLD gene family has been made in several model species. In maize, only a few literatures are available for cloning and function elucidation of several individual members of the(More)
Vacuolar H+-pyrophosphatase (H+-PPase) is one of the proton pumps involved in the response of plants to osmotic stress. In the present study, the vacuolar H+-PPase gene (AnVP1) was cloned from an epibiotic super-xerophytic plant, Ammopiptanthus nanus, by using rapid amplification of cDNA ends. The full-length cDNA was 2684 bp long, containing an open(More)
