CarNAC4 is a typical stress-responsive NAC transcription factor and enhances drought and salt stress tolerances in transgenic Arabidopsis. Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is relatively vulnerable to abiotic stress conditions, but the tolerance mechanisms for such stresses in chickpea are largely unknown. To identify stress-related factors in chickpea, we(More)
The plant-specific NAC (for NAM, ATAF1,2 and CUC2) proteins have been found to play important roles in plant development and stress responses. In this study, a NAC gene CarNAC1 (for Cicer arietinum L. NAC gene 1) was isolated from a cDNA library constructed with chickpea seedling leaves treated by polyethylene glycol. CarNAC1 encoded a putative protein with(More)
Actins are ubiquitous and highly conserved proteins that play key roles in cell formation and cellular activities. In this study, an actin gene was isolated from chickpea for the first time and designated as CarACT1 (for Cicer arietinum L. actin gene 1; Genbank accession no. EU529707). It encoded a putative protein with 377 amino acids and contained five(More)
As a large family of regulatory proteins, NAC (for NAM, ATAF1,2 and CUC2) proteins play important roles in various plant developmental processes and response to environmental stresses. Several studies have investigated the role of NAC transcription factors during these processes. In the present study, a gene encoding a NAC protein from chickpea (Cicer(More)
GmSBH1 involves in response to high temperature and humidity stress. Homeobox transcription factors are key switches that control plant development processes. Glycine max H1 Sbh1 (GmSBH1) was the first homeobox gene isolated from soybean. In the present study, the full ORF of GmSBH1 was isolated, and the encoded protein was found to be a typical class I(More)
Plant growth and productivity are inhibited by environmental stresses such as drought, salinity, and cold. NAC transcription factors play essential roles in response to the stresses. Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is an important legume crop, which has strong resistance to abiotic stresses. In this study, a chickpea NAC gene, CarNAC6, was isolated and(More)
Environmental stresses such as drought, salinity, and cold are major factors that significantly limit agricultural productivity. NAC is a plant-specific transcription factor family, which plays essential roles in response to various abiotic stresses. We have identified a novel NAC gene CarNAC5 from chickpea in a previous study, which was induced by drought(More)
The developing seed of soybean is susceptible to high temperature and humidity (HTH) stress, resulting in pre-harvest seed deterioration in the field. Many genes are found to respond to the stress. Based on our previous proteomics study, an HTH-responsive gene, GmCDPKSK5, was isolated from soybean seed. GmCDPKSK5 encodes a cytoplasm- and membrane-associated(More)
