BACKGROUND Xylanases have attracted considerable interest in recent years owing to their various applications in industry and agriculture. The use of transgenic plants to produce xylanases is a less expensive alternative to biotechnological programmes. The aim of this study was to elucidate whether introducing a foreign xylanase gene ATX into rice had any(More)
In this paper we focus our attention on RIXI, a member of the XIP type xylanase inhibitor proteins in rice. RIXI-overexpression transgenic lines were generated by expressing the RIXI gene under the control of auliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter. In comparison with the wild-type (WT) plants, the transgenic plants had significantly increased levels of RIXI(More)
With the explosive development of Internet and Social Networking Services (SNS), more and more people begin to get information from others. So how to find users, which have similar interests, is becoming an important issue. The traditional method is using a vector to calculate the similarities between user models. The similarities between user models are(More)
BACKGROUND Xylanase inhibitors have been confirmed to be involved in plant defence. OsXIP is a XIP-type rice xylanase inhibitor, yet its transcriptional regulation remains unknown. RESULTS Herbivore infestation, wounding and methyl jasmonate (MeJA) treatment enhanced mRNA levels and protein levels of OsXIP. By analyzing different 5' deletion mutants of(More)
riceXIP, a XIP-Type xylanase inhibitor gene identified in rice, was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. Recombinant protein riceXIP was active against xylanase from Aspergillus niger, suggesting correct expression. By using transgenic techniques, we achieved the overexpression of the riceXIP gene and gene knock-down plants and elucidated that riceXIP(More)
