Pepper is a thermophilous and heliophilic vegetable. In China, pepper is grown in greenhouse during winter and spring under lower temperature and irradiation. In this study, we investigated the effects of low temperature and low irradiance (LTLI) on the physiological characteristics and the expression of related genes in five pepper species, Capsicum annuum(More)
Ca2+ has been considered as an necessary ion for alleviation of stress-induced damages in plants. We investigated effects of exogenous Ca2+ on waterlogging-induced damage to pepper and its underlying mechanisms. Pepper seedlings under stress were treated by spraying of 10 mM CaCl2. Applying exogenous Ca2+ increased the biomass of pepper leaves and roots,(More)
The centromere is a key chromosomal component for sister chromatid cohesion and is the site for kinetochore assembly and spindle fiber attachment, allowing each sister chromatid to faithfully segregate to each daughter cell during cell division. It is not clear what types of sequences act as functional centromeres and how centromere sequences are organized(More)
Syrrhophus cystignathoides campi is a direct developing frog species that matures without passing through a larval (tadpole) stage. We have cloned and sequenced the Syrrhophus cDNA orthologous to the Xenopus Vg1 cDNA. The Syrrhophus Vg1 (sVg1) cDNA spans 1323 nucleotides and encodes a predicted protein of 345 amino acids which is 81% identical at its(More)
