Soil inorganic carbon (SIC), primarily calcium carbonate, is a major reservoir of carbon in arid lands. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that carbonate might be enhanced in arid cropland, in association with soil fertility improvement via organic amendments. We obtained two sets (65 each) of archived soil samples collected in the early and(More)
A mechanical effect is one of the important reasons for plant diversity, whose phenotype is crooked branch. Parametric curve equation, or skeleton extraction from image or video, or interactive design is often used to simulate branch bending. These methods generally could not dynamically demonstrate the process of deformation caused by stress. Moreover,(More)
This study aimed to develop a new vector system to remove selection genes and to introduce two or more genes of interest into plants in order to express them in a coordinated manner. A multigene expression vector was established based on pCamBIA2300 using a selectable marker gene (SMG)-free system based on the combination of the isocaudamer technique and(More)
Peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.), as a source of oil and protein, is the second-most important grain legume cultivated in the world. Peanut is a relatively drought-tolerant crop; however, the molecular biology research of peanut is far behind other crops; the molecular mechanisms of its stress resistance are poorly understood. DELLA proteins, negative(More)
Leaf senescence is a developmental programmed cell death (PCD) that occurs as a response to external and internal signals. Several factors, such as the environment, plant hormones, and senescence-associated genes, regulate leaf senescence. In Drosophila melanogaster, Will Die Slowly (WDS) is a WD-repeat protein, which is closely related to PCD. Phylogenetic(More)
Plant C2 domain proteins play important roles in diverse cellular processes including growth, development, and membrane targeting, as well as in abiotic and biotic stress adaptations by sensing intracellular Ca2+ signals. In this study, we isolated a novel C2 domain protein gene, TaERG3, from wheat infected by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici. TaERG3 was(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-5 (IGFBP-5) is one of the six members of IGFBP family, important for cell growth, apoptosis and other IGF-stimulated signaling pathways. In order to explore the significance of IGFBP-5 in cells of the Inner Mongolian Cashmere goat (Capra hircus), IGFBP-5 gene complementary DNA (cDNA) was amplified by reverse(More)
