BACKGROUND Single embryo transfer (SET) provides the most certain means to reduce the risk of multiple gestation. Regrettably, prospective trials of SET have demonstrated reductions in per-cycle delivery rates. A validated method of comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) has the potential to optimize SET by transferring only euploid embryos. This(More)
Betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase (BADH) is a key enzyme for glycine betaine synthesis, which plays an important role in improving plant tolerance to salinity. Until now, little is known about the molecular biology of BADH gene in sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.). Here, we report the cloning, sequencing, and expression of IbBADH gene of sweet potato.(More)
In order to study the structure and expression patterns of uridine diphosphate glucose dehydrogenase (UDPGH) genes in Ipomoea batatas, the transcriptome database of this plant constructed in our lab was first analyzed to screen UDPGH contigs. It was found that there were 23 UDPGH contigs of different sizes in the transcriptome database. Primers were(More)
Phytochrome A (phyA), as a photoreceptor, has a profound influence on plant growth and development and participates in many important physiological processes, such as seed germination, seeding deetiolation, and flowering. On the basis of transcriptome database of sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.), phyA gene was cloned and sequenced. The gene has an(More)
