Subgenome parallel selection is associated with morphotype diversification and convergent crop domestication in Brassica rapa and Brassica oleracea
Brassica species, including crops such as cabbage, turnip and oilseed, display enormous phenotypic variation. Brassica genomes have all undergone a whole-genome triplication (WGT) event with unknownExpand
Genome-wide analysis of the GRAS gene family in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis).
The GRAS gene family is one of the most important families of transcriptional regulators. In this study, 48 GRAS genes are identified from Chinese cabbage, and they are classified into eight groupsExpand
AtCPK6, a functionally redundant and positive regulator involved in salt/drought stress tolerance in Arabidopsis
The calcium-dependent protein kinase (CDPK) family is needed in plant signaling during various physiological pathways. The ArabidopsisAtCPK6 gene belongs to the subclass of stress-inducible CDPKs,Expand
Genome-wide analysis of the AP2/ERF transcription factor superfamily in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis)
BackgroundChinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis) is a member of one of the most important leaf vegetables grown worldwide, which has experienced thousands of years in cultivation andExpand
The SNARE Protein Syp71 Is Essential for Turnip Mosaic Virus Infection by Mediating Fusion of Virus-Induced Vesicles with Chloroplasts
All positive-strand RNA viruses induce the biogenesis of cytoplasmic membrane-bound virus factories for viral genome multiplication. We have previously demonstrated that upon plant potyvirusExpand
Identification and characterization of microRNAs and their target genes in Brassica oleracea.
The microRNAs are a new class of small non-coding endogenous RNAs with lengths of approximately ~21 nt. MicroRNAs perform their biological function via the degradation of the target mRNAs or byExpand
Genome-Wide Analysis and Expression Patterns of NAC Transcription Factor Family Under Different Developmental Stages and Abiotic Stresses in Chinese Cabbage
NAC (NAM, ATAF1/2 and CUC2) proteins represent a major plant-specific transcription factor (TF) family and are expressed in various developmental stages and tissues. In this study, 204 NAC genes,Expand
Genome-wide analysis of the MADS-box gene family in Brassica rapa (Chinese cabbage)
The MADS-box gene family is an ancient and well-studied transcription factor family that functions in almost every developmental process in plants. There are a number of reports about the MADS-boxExpand
Genome-wide analysis of the bHLH transcription factor family in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis)
Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors are widely distributed in eukaryotic organisms and are thought to be one of the largest families of regulatory proteins. This important family ofExpand
