Plant phosphate (Pi) transporters mediate the uptake and translocation of this nutrient within plants. A total of 13 sequences in the rice (Oryza sativa) genome can be identified as belonging to the Pi transporter (Pht1) family. Here, we report on the expression patterns, biological properties and the physiological roles of two members of the family:(More)
To completely avoid ice crystal formation and thus get a higher survival rate, vitrification methods have been commonly used for cryopreservation of oocytes and embryos. However, currently used vitrification methods for oocytes and embryos are not suitable for the cryopreservation of preantral follicles (PFs). In the present study, stainless steel mesh was(More)
Rice grown under anaerobic waterlogged soil condition takes up ammonium as a major source of nitrogen (N). A substantial quantity of nitrate is taken up by rice when aeration conditions prevail. This work compared the physiological and molecular responses of N-depleted rice (Oryza sativa L. japonica ssp. cv. Wuyunjing) to re-supply of different N sources in(More)
