To better understand abscisic acid (ABA) regulation of the synthesis of chloroplast proteins in maize (Zea mays L.) in response to drought and light, we compared leaf proteome differences between maize ABA-deficient mutant vp5 and corresponding wild-type Vp5 green and etiolated seedlings exposed to drought stress. Proteins extracted from the leaves of Vp5(More)
Roots are highly sensitive organ in plant response to drought, which commonly inhibits root growth. However, less is known about the effect of ABA on root protein expression induced by drought. To help clarify the role of ABA in protein expression of root response to drought, root protein patterns were monitored using a proteomic approach in maize(More)
We adopted a proteomics approach to identify and analyze the differential expression of maize root proteins associated with abscisic acid (ABA) regulation under combined drought and heat stress. Using mass spectrometry, we identified 22 major proteins that were significantly up-regulated under combined drought and heat stress. These 22 proteins were(More)
Abscisic acid (ABA) regulates various developmental processes and stress responses in plants. Protein phosphorylation/dephosphorylation is a central post-translational modification (PTM) in ABA signaling. However, the phosphoproteins regulated by ABA under osmotic stress remain unknown in maize. In this study, maize mutant vp5 (deficient in ABA(More)
Southern corn rust (SCR) epiphytotics have resulted in severe losses of maize yield. Whole-genome gene expression profiles of a SCR-resistant maize hybrid leaves after inoculation with Puccinia polysora Underw. were analyzed using an Affymetrix GeneChip. Of the 532 differentially expressed probe sets, 341 were up-regulated and 191 were down-regulated after(More)
The lack of a detailed landslide inventory makes research on the vulnerability of people to landslides highly limited. In this paper, the authors collect information on the landslides that have caused casualties in China, and established the Landslides Casualties Inventory of China. 100 landslide cases from 2003 to 2012 were utilized to develop an empirical(More)
Much of the literature on recovery focuses on the economy, the physical environment and infrastructure at a macro level, which may ignore the personal experiences of affected individuals during recovery. This paper combines internal factors at a micro level and external factors at a macro level to model for understanding perception of recovery (PoR). This(More)
