Drought can cause severe reduction in maize production, and strongly threatens crop yields. To dissect this complex trait and identify superior alleles, 350 tropical and subtropical maize inbred lines were genotyped using a 1536-SNP array developed from drought-related genes and an array of 56,110 random SNPs. The inbred lines were crossed with a common(More)
BACKGROUND Hypocrea jecorina is the sexual form of the industrial workhorse fungus Trichoderma reesei that secretes cellulases and hemicellulases to degrade lignocellulosic biomass into simple sugars, such as glucose and xylose. H. jecorina CBS999.97 is the only T. reesei wild isolate strain that is sexually competent in laboratory conditions. It undergoes(More)
Microarray assay of four inbred lines was used to identify 303 microRNAs differentially expressed under drought stress. The microRNAs were used for bioinformatics prediction of their target genes. The majority of the differentially expressed microRNA families showed different expression profiles at different time points of the stress process among the four(More)
Maize dwarf mosaic virus (MDMV) is a widespread pathogen that causes serious yield loss to maize crops. A hairpin RNA expression vector was constructed herein to overcome the low efficiency of cultural protection against MDMV and to improve the MDMV resistance mediated by a shorter transgenic inverted-repeat sequence. This expression vector contained a 451(More)
THE TITLE COMPOUND [SYSTEMATIC NAME: 3,3',6,6'-tetra-hydroxy-4,4'-dimethyl-1,1'-bi(cyclo-hexa-3,6-diene)-2,2',5,5'-tetra-one], C(14)H(10)O(8), was isolated from Tremella fuciformis. The mol-ecule has 2 symmetry, with the mid-point of the C-C bond linking the cyclo-hexa-dienedione rings located on a twofold rotation axis. In the mol-ecule, the ring is(More)
It has been reported that Arabidopsis phytochrome (phy) A and phyB are crucial photoreceptors that display synergistic and antagonistic action during seedling de-etiolation in multiple light signaling pathways. However, the functional relationship between phyA and phyB is not fully understood under different kinds of light and in response to different(More)
