In this study, we report the molecular characterization and functional analysis of OsLEA5 gene, which belongs to the atypical late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) group 5C from Oryza sativa L. The cDNA of OsLEA5 contains a 456 bp ORF encoding a polypeptide of 151 amino acids with a calculated molecular mass of 16.5 kDa and a theoretical pI of 5.07. The OsLEA5(More)
Expression of the tomato gene encoding 13-lipoxygenase,TomloxD, is stimulated by wounding, pathogen infection, jasmonate, and systemin, but its role during growth and development of tomato (Lycopersicon Spp.) remains unclear. To assess the physiological role of TomloxD, we produced transgenic tomato plants with greatly increased TomloxD content using sense(More)
Microsatellites or simple sequence repeats (SSRs) have become the most popular source of genetic markers, which are ubiquitously distributed in many eukaryotic and prokaryotic genomes. This is the first study examining and comparing SSRs in completely sequenced genomes of the Bovidae. We analyzed and compared the number of SSRs, relative abundance, relative(More)
TomloxD is a lipoxygenase from Lycopersicon esculentum Mill, which has lipoxygenase activity. The expression of TomloxD can be stimulated by wounding, pathogen infection, jasmonate, and systemin. To investigate the function of TomloxD, transgenic tomato plants silencing tomloxD gene was produced. The suppression of TomloxD expression led to a marked(More)
As the first systematic examination of simple sequence repeats (SSRs) and guanine-cytosine (GC) distribution in intragenic and intergenic regions of ten primates, our study showed that SSRs and GC displayed nonrandom distribution for both intragenic and intergenic regions, suggesting that they have potential roles in transcriptional or translational(More)
Late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins in organisms are closely associated with resistance to abiotic stresses. Here we characterized a rice LEA protein, OsLEA3-1, by bioinformatics analysis and heterologous expression in Escherichia coli. Bioinformatics analysis showed that OsLEA3-1 contains a 603-bp open reading frame encoding a putative polypeptide(More)
Coronatine insensitive 1 (COI1) is a key regulator in the jasmonate signaling pathway, which plays a central role in jasmonate signaling by forming SCF complexes in the ubiquitination pathway. In this study, the full-length cDNA of CaCOI1 was isolated from chili pepper by reverse transcription PCR. CaCOI1 contains a 1,812-bp open reading frame encoding 603(More)
