Invertase plays a crucial role in carbohydrate partitioning and plant development as it catalyses the irreversible hydrolysis of sucrose into glucose and fructose. The invertase family in plants is composed of two sub-families: acid invertases, which are targeted to the cell wall and vacuole; and neutral/alkaline invertases, which function in the cytosol.(More)
APETALA1 plays a crucial role in the transition from vegetative to reproductive phase and in floral development. In this study, to determine the effect of AP1 expression on flowering time and floral organ development, transgenic Arabidopsis and poplar overexpressing of AtAP1M3 (Arabidopsis AP1 mutant by dominant negative mutation) were generated. Transgenic(More)
Poplar seed hair is an environmental annoyance in northern China due to its abundance and widespread airborne distribution after maturation. The morphogenesis and molecular mechanisms of its development are not well understood, and little attention has been focused on the dynamics of its development. To better understand the mechanism of poplar seed hair(More)
APETALA1 plays a crucial role in floral transition from vegetative to reproductive phase and in flower development. In this study, a comprehensive analysis of AP1 homologues in poplar was performed by describing the gene structure and chromosomal location. The phylogenetic relationship of the deduced amino acid sequences of Arabidopsis AP1 and AP1(More)
BTB (broad-complex, tramtrack, and bric-a-brac) family proteins are characterized by the presence of a protein–protein interaction BTB domain. BTB proteins have diverse functions, including transcriptional regulation, protein degradation, chromatin remodeling, and cytoskeletal regulation. However, little is known about this gene family in tomato (Solanum(More)
Periploca sepium Bunge is a traditional medicinal plant, whose root bark is important for Chinese herbal medicine. Its major bioactive compounds are C21 steroids and periplocin, a kind of cardiac glycoside, which are derived from the steroid synthesis pathway. However, research on P. sepium genome or transcriptomes and their related genes has been lacking(More)
Herbaceous model species, especially Arabidopsis has provided a wealth of information about the genes involved in floral induction and development of inflorescences and flowers. While the genus Populus is an important model system for the molecular biology of woody plant. These two genuses differ in many ways. This study was designed to improve(More)
