The plant plasma membrane (PM) H(+)-ATPase plays a crucial role in controlling K(+)/Na(+) homeostasis under salt stress. Our previous microarray analysis indicated that Populus euphratica retained a higher abundance of PM H(+)-ATPase transcript versus a salt-sensitive poplar. To clarify the roles of the PM H(+)-ATPase in salt sensing and adaptation, we(More)
Two wheat–Thinopyrum substitution lines X479 and X482 selected from the progenies of wheat “Mianyang26 (MY26)” × wheat–Thinopyrum intermedium ssp. trichophorum partial amphiploid were characterized by seed storage protein electrophoresis, genomic in situ hybridization (GISH), fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and PCR-based molecular markers. Seed(More)
Both parallel Magnetic Resonance Imaging (pMRI) and Compressed Sensing (CS) can significantly reduce imaging time in MRI, the former by utilizing multiple channel receivers and the latter by utilizing the sparsity of MR images in a transformed domain. In this work, pMRI and CS are integrated to take advantages of the sensitivity information from multiple(More)
New molecular markers were developed for targeting Thinopyrum intermedium 1St#2 chromosome, and novel FISH probe representing the terminal repeats was produced for identification of Thinopyrum chromosomes. Thinopyrum intermedium has been used as a valuable resource for improving the disease resistance and yield potential of wheat. A wheat-Th. intermedium(More)
Na(+) uptake and transport in Kandelia candel and antioxidative defense were investigated under rising NaCl stress from 100 to 300 mM. Salinized K. candel roots had a net Na(+) efflux with a declined flux rate during an extended NaCl exposure. Na(+) buildup in leaves enhanced H2O2 levels, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity, and increased transcription of(More)
Poplar species increase expressions of transcription factors to deal with salt environments. We assessed the salt-induced transcriptional responses of heat-shock transcription factor (HSF) and WRKY1 in Populus euphratica, and their roles in salt tolerance. High NaCl (200mM) induced PeHSF and PeWRKY1 expressions in P. euphratica, with a rapid rise in roots(More)
Wild barley eibi1 mutant with HvABCG31 gene mutation has low capacity to retain leaf water, a phenotype associated with reduced cutin deposition and a thin cuticle. To better understand how such a mutant plant survives, we performed a genome-wide gene expression analysis. The leaf transcriptomes between the near-isogenic lines eibi1 and the wild type were(More)
Diverse late transition metal catalysts convert terminal or internal alkynes to transient allylmetal species that display electrophilic or nucleophilic properties. Whereas classical methods for the generation of allylmetal species often mandate formation of stoichiometric byproducts, recent use of alkynes as allylmetal precursors enables completely(More)
Although the unique properties of wheat α-gliadin gene family are well characterized, little is known about the evolution and genomic divergence of α-gliadin gene family within the Triticeae. We isolated a total of 203 α-gliadin gene sequences from 11 representative diploid and polyploid Triticeae species, and found 108 sequences putatively functional. Our(More)
