Transcription factors of the homeodomain-leucine zipper IV (HD-ZIP IV) family play crucial roles in epidermis-related processes. To gain further insight into the molecular function of OUTER CELL LAYER1 (OCL1), 14 target genes up- or down-regulated in transgenic maize (Zea mays) plants overexpressing OCL1 were identified. The 14 genes all showed partial(More)
Selected channel-lining cysteine mutants from the M2 segment of rat alpha1 gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) type A receptor subunit, at positions 257, 261, 264, and 272 were co-expressed with beta1 and gamma2 subunits in Xenopus oocytes. They generated functional receptors displaying conductance and response to both GABA and picrotoxinin similar to the wild(More)
Having a well-known history of genome duplication, rice is a good model for studying structural and functional evolution of paleo duplications. Improved sequence alignment criteria were used to characterize 10 major chromosome-to-chromosome duplication relationships associated with 1440 paralogous pairs, covering 47.8% of the rice genome, with 12.6% of(More)
