NAC (NAM, ATAF, and CUC) is a plant-specific transcription factor family with diverse roles in plant development and stress regulation. In this report, stress-responsive NAC genes (GhNAC8-GhNAC17) isolated from cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) were characterised in the context of leaf senescence and stress tolerance. The characterisation of NAC genes during(More)
Nostoc, a nitrogen-fixing cyanobacterium, has great potential to make symbiotic associations with a wide range of plants and benefit its hosts with nitrogen in the form of nitrates. It may also use phytohormones as a tool to promote plant growth. Phytohormones [cytokinin (Ck) and IAA] were determined in the culture of an endophytic Nostoc isolated from rice(More)
The NAC domain genes encode a large family of plant-specific transcription factors that play diverse roles in plant development and stress regulation. In this study, a total of 60 full-length putative NAC genes were isolated from Gossypium hirsutum L. Based on their phylogeny, all GhNAC genes were clustered into seven distinct subfamilies, which exhibit(More)
Nostoc is widely known for its ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen and the establishment of symbiotic relationship with a wide range of plants from various taxonomic groups. Several strains of Nostoc produce phytohormones that promote growth of its plant partners. Nostoc OS-1 was therefore selected for study because of the presence of putative ipdC gene(More)
Caralluma tuberculata (C. tuberculata) is a very important medicinal plant with a range of anti-diabetic and weight reduction properties. This high-valued medicinal plant is nowadays considered as endangered due to its unsustainable elimination from wild habitats. There is lack of research efforts on its propagation to overcome escalating demand. In this(More)
