The tuberous root of radish is an important vegetable, but insufficient transcriptomic and genomic data are currently available to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying tuberous root formation and development. High-throughput transcriptomic sequencing is essential to generate a large transcript sequence data set for gene discovery and molecular(More)
The objective of this study was to develop an efficient regeneration and transformation protocol for cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). Cotyledonary node explants showed a very high regeneration frequency (94.3 %) when incubated on Murashige and Skoog medium (MS) supplemented with 1.5 mg l−1 6-benzyladenine (BA). An Agrobacterium-mediated transformation(More)
—Four radiative transfer equations for Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) bands 11, 12, 13, and 14 are built involving six unknowns (average atmospheric temperature, land surface temperature, and four band emissivities), which is a typical ill-posed problem. The extra equations can be built by using linear or nonlinear(More)
S-adenosylmethionine synthetase is a member of the stress-induced family genes. Our previous research indicated that overexpression of SlSAMS1 confers alkali stress tolerance to tomato seedlings. However, information regarding the alkali stress tolerance mechanism of SlSAMS1 and the cross-linked network between SlSAMS1 and downstream signal has been(More)
Nitrate reductase is a key enzyme in the overall process of nitrate assimilation by plants. A full-length cDNA clone encoding nitrate reductase (NR; EC 1.6.6.1) was isolated from cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) by RT-PCR and RACE techniques. The NR of cucumber (CsNR), a full-length cDNA sequence of 3032 bp contains an open reading frame of 2748 bp encoding(More)
Carbon dioxide (CO(2)) is the most important greenhouse gas (GHG) in the atmosphere and is the greatest contributor to global warming. CO(2) concentration data are usually obtained from ground observation stations or from a small number of satellites. Because of the limited number of observations and the short time series of satellite data, it is difficult(More)
In this paper, an Urban Light Index (ULI) is constructed to facilitate analysis and quantitative evaluation of the process of urbanization and expansion rate by using DMSP/OLS Nighttime Light Data during the years from 1992 to 2010. A unit circle urbanization evaluation model is established to perform a comprehensive analysis of the urbanization process of(More)
