LAX PANICLE2 of Rice Encodes a Novel Nuclear Protein and Regulates the Formation of Axillary Meristems[W]
It is proposed that LAX2 is a novel factor that acts together with LAX1 in rice to regulate the process of AM formation, and it is shown thatLAX PANICLE2 (LAX2) likely acts in the maintenance of the axillary meristem. Expand
Integrated genome sequence and linkage map of physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.), a biodiesel plant.
The draft genome of physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.), a biodiesel plant, is reported, highlighting specific expansion and contraction of a number of gene families during the evolution of this species, including the ribosome-inactivating proteins and oil biosynthesis pathway enzymes. Expand
OsMAPK6, a mitogen-activated protein kinase, influences rice grain size and biomass production.
The functional analysis of a rice mutant, dwarf and small grain1 (dsg1), which displays pleiotropic phenotypes, plays a pivotal role in grain size in rice, via cell proliferation, and BR signaling and homeostasis. Expand
Identification of novel stress-regulated microRNAs from Oryza sativa L.
The identification of novel stress-related miRNAs in rice suggests that these mi RNAs might be involved in rice stress response pathways. Expand
Global Analysis of Gene Expression Profiles in Developing Physic Nut (Jatropha curcas L.) Seeds
Next-generation Illumina sequencing technology is applied to analyze global gene expression profiles of developing physic nut seeds to reveal the key genes involved in major metabolic processes including: carbon flow, starch metabolism, and synthesis of storage lipids and proteins in the developing seeds.

Construction of a binary BAC library for an apomictic monosomic addition line of Beta corolliflora in sugar beet and identification of the clones derived from the alien chromosome
A plant-transformation-competent binary BAC library was constructed from the genomic DNA of the chromosome 9 monosomic addition line of Beta corolliflora Zoss, which potentially contain the genes of the alien chromosome specifically expressed during the ovule and embryo development of M14, and may be associated with apomictic reproduction.

A TRIM insertion in the promoter of Ms2 causes male sterility in wheat
The identification of Ms2 not only unravels the genetic basis of a historically important breeding trait, but also shows an example of how a TRIM element insertion near a gene can contribute to genetic novelty and phenotypic plasticity. Expand
DFL, a FLORICAULA/LEAFY homologue gene from Dendranthema lavandulifolium is expressed both in the vegetative and reproductive tissues
To understand the mechanism of reproduction of chrysanthemum at the molecular level, DFL, a FLORICAULA/LEAFY homologous gene, was cloned from Dendranthema lavandulifolium and RT-PCR results showed that DFL was strongly expressed in the flower bud. Expand
Effect of supplemetation of Zebularine and Scriptaid on efficiency of in vitro developmental competence of ovine somatic cell nuclear transferred embryos
This study proved that 5 nmol/L Zebularine and 0.2 μmol/L Scriptaid treating with sheep donor cumulus cells and reconstructed embryos improved SCNT blastocyst rate and relieve the abnormal expression of embryonic developmental related genes. Expand

The results indicate that, in an ovine model, zebularine decreases overall DNA methylation levels in donor cumulus cells and reconstructed embryos, downregulates theDNA methylation profile in the promoter region of pluripotency genes in donor cells and ultimately elevates the expression of plurine genes in the reconstruct embryos, which can lead to improved development of SCNT embryos.
