Xanthomonas T3S Effector XopN Suppresses PAMP-Triggered Immunity and Interacts with a Tomato Atypical Receptor-Like Kinase and TFT1[W]
XopN action in planta reduced pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP)-induced gene expression and callose deposition in host tissue is shown, indicating that XopN suppresses PAMP-triggered immune responses during Xcv infection. Expand

  • 26 October 2012
The chromosome distribution and the genetic analysis reveal that 58 ZmbZIP genes are located in the segmental duplicate regions in the maize genome, suggesting that the segment chromosomal duplications contribute greatly to the expansion of the maize bZIP family. Expand
CACTA-like transposable element in ZmCCT attenuated photoperiod sensitivity and accelerated the postdomestication spread of maize

Functional validations indicated that the TE represses ZmCCT expression to reduce photoperiod sensitivity, thus accelerating maize spread to long-day environments. Expand
Constitutive expression of CIR1 (RVE2) affects several circadian-regulated processes and seed germination in Arabidopsis.
The identification and characterization of an MYB-related gene, designated Circadian 1 (CIR1), that is involved in circadian regulation in Arabidopsis is reported, suggesting that CIR1 is possibly part of a regulatory feedback loop that controls a subset of the circadian outputs and modulates the central oscillator.

Comparative proteomic analysis of the plant-virus interaction in resistant and susceptible ecotypes of maize infected with sugarcane mosaic virus.
Proteomic changes in resistant and susceptible plants that are infected with SCMV using DIGE based proteomics identified 17 proteins that have not been identified previously as virus-responsive proteins, and 7 new proteins without assigned functions that are interesting candidates for future research.

Cloning and Characterization of a Putative TAC1 Ortholog Associated with Leaf Angle in Maize (Zea mays L.)
The leaf angle is controlled by a major quantitative trait locus, ZmTAC1, which had been extensively utilized in breeding with regard to the improvement of the maize plant architecture. Expand
QTLs for Seed Vigor-Related Traits Identified in Maize Seeds Germinated under Artificial Aging Conditions
SNP markers are used to map quantitative trait loci for four seed vigor traits in two connected recombinant inbred line (RIL) maize populations under four treatment conditions during seed germination to provide valuable information for the identification of additional quantitative trait genes. Expand
Genetic analysis of leaf morphology underlying the plant density response by QTL mapping in maize (Zea mays L.)
The results presented here provide useful information for further research and the marker-assisted selection of varieties targeting increased plant density and will help to reveal the molecular mechanisms related to leaf morphology in response to density. Expand
Ectopic expression of wheat expansin gene TaEXPA2 improved the salt tolerance of transgenic tobacco by regulating Na+ /K+ and antioxidant competence.
The results suggest that TaEXPA2 overexpression confers salt stress tolerance on the transgenic plants, and this is associated with improved water status, Na+ /K+ homeostasis, and antioxidant competence. Expand
Dissection of the genetic architecture underlying the plant density response by mapping plant height-related traits in maize (Zea mays L.)
The results suggested that plant height may be controlled mainly by a common set of genes that could be influenced by additional genetic mechanisms when the plants were grown under high plant density. Expand
