A single dominant gene Gc controls the trait of high chlorophyll (Chl) content in rice (cultivar (cv.) Zhenshan 97B). The contents of Chl b and total Chl increased 100% and 25%, respectively, when Gc was introduced. In addition, photosynthetic rate, biomass and grain yield also increased by 20%, 17% and 16%, respectively. Three simple sequence repeats (SSR)(More)
As an important agronomic trait, the chlorophyll (Chl) content is closely related to photosynthesis in plants. A rice mutant Gc (Oryza sativa indica) was characterized previously by its enhanced Chl content (Chl b and total Chl) and exaggerated photosynthetic rate. Here, we describe the enhanced Chl content was caused by a mutation in the rice homolog of(More)
DEETIOLATED1 (DET1) plays a critical role in developmental and environmental responses in many plants. To date, the functions of OsDET1 in rice (Oryza sativa) have been largely unknown. OsDET1 is an ortholog of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) DET1 Here, we found that OsDET1 is essential for maintaining normal rice development. The repression of OsDET1(More)
While electroluminescence has been demonstrated at terahertz frequencies from Si/SiGe quantum cascade emitters, to date no laser has been achieved due to poor vertical confinement of the optical mode. A method of increasing the vertical confinement of the optical mode for a Si/SiGe quantum cascade laser is demonstrated using silicon-on-silicide technology.(More)
Fault tolerance is especially important for interconnection networks, vastly influencing the performance of the parallel processing systems underlying the corresponding networks. This paper studies the fault tolerance of radix-k n-dimensional hypermesh optical interconnection networks, determines the connectivity of partial hypermesh, and derives the(More)
