Plant annexins are Ca2+- and phospholipid-binding proteins forming an evolutionary conserved multi-gene family. They are implicated in the regulation of plant growth, development, and stress responses. With the availability of the maize genome sequence information, we identified 12 members of the maize annexin genes. Analysis of protein sequence and gene(More)
MYB transcription factors play important roles in the abiotic stress response in plants, but their characteristics and functions in buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum) have not been fully investigated. Here, a novel R2R3-type MYB gene, designated FtMYB12, was isolated from the cultivated tartary buckwheat F. tataricum. Using quantitative real-time PCR, we found(More)
Maize (Zea mays ssp. mays L.) is an important model organism for fundamental research in the agro-biotechnology field. Aldehydes were generated in response to a suite of environmental stresses that perturb metabolism including salinity, dehydration, desiccation, and cold and heat shock. Many biologically important aldehydes are metabolized by the(More)
