Conservation of noncoding microsatellites in plants: implication for gene regulation
BackgroundMicrosatellites are extremely common in plant genomes, and in particular, they are significantly enriched in the 5' noncoding regions. Although some 5' noncoding microsatellites involved inExpand

Isolation and characterization of a vacuolar Na+/H+ antiporter gene from Cucumis melo L.
We isolated a vacuolar Na+/H+ antiporter gene (CmNHX1) from melon using the rapid amplification of cDNA ends approach. Sequence analysis indicated that the full-length cDNA of CmNHX1 was 2534 bp,Expand

Molecular cloning and stress-dependent regulation of potassium channel gene in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. Pekinensis).
Potassium channels are important for many physiological functions in plants, one of which is to regulate plant adaption to stress conditions. In this study, KCT2, the gene encoding a membrane-boundExpand

Identification of early response genes to salt stress in roots of melon (Cucumis melo L.) seedlings
In order to better understand the mechanisms by which muskmelons (Cucumis melo L.) respond to salt stress, a cDNA library was constructed using suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) from theExpand

Regulation of the inward rectifying K+ channel MIRK and ion distribution in two melon cultivars (Cucumis melo L.) under NaCl salinity stress
Maintenance of a high K+/Na+ concentration ratio in plants by regulation of the expression of specific ion channels plays an important role in salt resistance. In this work, two melon cultivarsExpand

Genome-wide investigation of the NAC transcription factor family in melon (Cucumis melo L.) and their expression analysis under salt stress
Key message82 melon NAC (CmNAC) genes were identified in melon. We putatively identified the function of CmNAC gene in melon under salt stress.AbstractNAC transcription factor proteins play importantExpand

Comparative Analysis of Gene Expression in Two Muskmelon Cultivars (Cucumis melo L.) Under Salt Stress
Abstract Salinity is one of the most important abiotic stresses that adversely affects crop growth and productivity. A subtractive suppression hybridization (SSH) library were constructed from theExpand

Supportive role of the Na+ transporter CmHKT1;1 from Cucumis melo in transgenic Arabidopsis salt tolerance through improved K+/Na+ balance
CmHKT1;1 selectively exports Na+ from plant cells. Upon NaCl stress, its expression increased in a salt-tolerant melon cultivar. Overexpression of CmHKT1;1 increased transgenic Arabidopsis saltExpand

CmRAV1 shows differential expression in two melon (Cucumis melo L.) cultivars and enhances salt tolerance in transgenic Arabidopsis plants.
The growth and development of melon (Cucumis melo L.) are severely affected by soil salinization in many areas of the world, but the understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying saltExpand

A calmodulin-like CmCML13 from Cucumis melo improved transgenic Arabidopsis salt tolerance through reduced shoot's Na+, and also improved drought resistance.
The calmodulin-like proteins (CMLs) are a large family involved in plant biological processes. A calmodulin-like gene CmCML13 (GenBank accession number: MT340534) from melon (Cucumis melo L.) wasExpand
