The small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) are most prevalent in plants and are believed to play an important role in stress tolerance. Our microarray and qRT-PCR analyses of rice plants showed that the gene Oryza sativa Multi-Stress-Responsive 4 (OsMSR-4) is induced by heat, drought, and cold in different tissues at various developmental stages. OsMSR-4 encodes(More)
Drought is a major environmental factor that limits plant growth and crop productivity. Genetic engineering is an effective approach to improve drought tolerance in various crops, including rice (Oryza sativa). Functional characterization of relevant genes is a prerequisite when identifying candidates for such improvements. We investigated OsSGL (Oryza(More)
Salinity is a major environmental stress that limits agricultural production and geographical distribution of plants. In a previous study, it has been shown that OsMsr9 was induced by cold, drought and heat stresses. However, functions of OsMsr9 at physiological and molecular levels are still unknown. Here, we report that OsMsr9 plays roles in salt(More)
In recent years, the big data emerged as a hot topic because of the rapid growth of the information and wireless communication technology. One of the significant sources of the big data is wireless sensor networks. Due to the power limitation of sensor nodes, energy-efficient big data collecting is a challenging task in wireless sensor networks. Being(More)
The MYB proteins play important roles in regulating plant responses to environmental stresses. We cloned and functionally characterized a novel MYB-related gene, OsMYBR1, from rice. Our microarray and qRT-PCR analyses showed that its expression was induced by drought and cold in different tissues at various developmental stages. This gene encodes a putative(More)
Calmodulin-like (CML) genes regulate plant growth, development, and responses to abiotic stresses such as salinity and drought. Many genes encoding CML proteins have been identified from rice (Oryza sativa), but their functions remain largely unknown. Our characterization of one putative CML gene, OsDSR-1 (O. sativa Drought Stress Response-1), showed that(More)
Autotetraploid Arabidopsis line esd and 4COL exhibit enhanced tolerance to Cu stress by enhancing activation of antioxidative defenses, altering expression of genes related to Cu transport, chelation, and ABA-responsive. Autopolyploidy is ubiquitous among angiosperms and often results in better adaptation to stress conditions. Although copper (Cu) is an(More)
Abiotic stress seriously affects the yield of rice (Oryza sativa L.). Grain yield in rice is multiplicatively determined by the number of panicles, number of grains per panicle, and grain weight. Here, we describe the molecular and functional characterization of STRESS_tolerance and GRAIN_LENGTH (OsSGL), a rice gene strongly up-regulated by a wide spectrum(More)
