Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades are conserved signal transduction pathways in all eukaryotic organisms. MAPKKKs (MAPK kinase kinases) operate at the top levels of these cascades. Recently, this family of genes has been systematically investigated in Arabidopsis, rice and maize, but has not yet been characterized in cotton. In this study, we(More)
BACKGROUND Sutherlandia frutescens (L.) R.Br. (SF) is a South African plant that is widely used to treat stress, infections, cancer, and chronic diseases, many of which involve oxidative stress. The aim of the study was to quantitatively assess the antioxidant potential of SF extracts in cell-free system as well as in cell lines. METHODS Dried SF(More)
Recent researches on long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have expanded our horizon of gene regulation and the cellular complexity. However, the number, characteristics and expression patterns of lncRNAs remain poorly characterized and how these lncRNAs biogenesis are regulated in response to drought stress in cotton are still largely unclear. In the study, using(More)
Salinity stress is a major abiotic factor that affects crop output, and as a pioneer crop in saline and alkaline land, salt tolerance study of cotton is particularly important. In our experiment, four salt-tolerance varieties with different salt tolerance indexes including CRI35 (65.04%), Kanghuanwei164 (56.19%), Zhong9807 (55.20%) and CRI44 (50.50%), as(More)
Several spatiotemporal patterns: random spots, hexagon pattern, coexistences of hexagon and square pattern, and square pattern are obtained in dielectric barrier discharge system while increasing the voltage with other parameters fixed. By using image processing including spatial correlation function and Fourier spectrum, the structures of patterns and the(More)
BACKGROUND DNA methylation, with a cryptic role in genome stability, gene transcription and expression, is involved in the drought response process in plants, but the complex regulatory mechanism is still largely unknown. RESULTS Here, we performed whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) and identified long non-coding RNAs on cotton leaves under drought(More)
A series of periodic spatiotemporal patterns are presented in air dielectric barrier discharge, which undergo the evolvement sequence from random spots--hexagon pattern--white-eye pattern-chaos, when increasing the applied voltage. By using image processing method, including the Fast Fourier Transform, read and display technique, the structures of different(More)
