Members of the plant glycine-rich RNA-binding proteins (GR-RBPs) family have been reported in flowering, development, circadian rhythms, biotic and abiotic stresses. Particularly, GR-RBPs are reported to function as RNA chaperones, promoting growth and acclimation during cold shock. It is indispensable to further question the efficacy and mechanism of(More)
The MYB family represents one of the most abundant classes of transcriptional regulators that perform pivotal role under different developmental processes and abiotic stresses. In present study, a MYB gene from Oryza sativa was selected for functional characterization. Bioinformatics analysis revealed that OsMYB1 cDNA encodes R2-R3 type DNA binding domain(More)
Sperm sexing through flow-sorting technology is relatively expensive, requires considerable technical support and is actually not practicable in many developing countries. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of producing enriched pools of X or Y chromosome-bearing sperm by a modified swim-up method. For this purpose semen was collected(More)
To evaluate the effectiveness of a germin-like protein (GLP) in legumes against the serious soil-borne pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lentis, an Oryza sativa root-expressed GLP (OsRGLP1) was expressed in the model legume Medicago truncatula using the recombinant vector pCOsRGLP1. The transgene was highly expressed in M. truncatula transformed lines as(More)
Expression of germin-like proteins (GLPs) is reportedly modulated during exposure to pathogens and abiotic stresses. Nevertheless, little is known about the transcription factors and their modulatory role in the mechanism of the regulation of GLP genes. The promoter of Oryza sativa Root Expressed GLP2 (OsRGLP2) gene reportedly showed strong expression in(More)
Germins and germin-like proteins are ubiquitous, expressed at various developmental stages and in response to various abiotic and biotic stresses. In this study, to functionally validate the OsRGLP2 promoter, 5' deletion analysis of the promoter sequences was performed and the deletion fragments fused with the β-glucuronidase (GUS) and green fluorescent(More)
