The Cys2/His2-type zinc finger proteins have been implicated in different cellular processes involved in plant development and stress responses. Through microarray analysis, a salt-responsive zinc finger protein gene ZFP179 was identified and subsequently cloned from rice seedlings. ZFP179 encodes a 17.95 kDa protein with two C2H2-type zinc finger motifs(More)
Salt tolerance of rice (Oryza sativa L.) at the seedling stage is one of the major determinants of its stable establishment in saline soil. One population of recombinant inbred lines (RILs, F 2:9) derived from a cross between the salt-tolerant variety Jiucaiqing and the salt-sensitive variety IR26 was used to determine the genetic mechanism of four salt(More)
The key to plant survival under NaCl salt stress is maintaining a low Na(+) level or Na(+)/K(+) ratio in the cells. A population of recombinant inbred lines (RILs, F(2:9)) derived from a cross between the salt-tolerant japonica rice variety Jiucaiqing and the salt-sensitive indica variety IR26, was used to determine Na(+) and K(+) concentrations in the(More)
The CDF family is a ubiquitous family that has been identified in prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and archaea. Members of this family are important heavy metal transporters that transport metal ions out of the cytoplasm. In this research, a full length cDNA named Oryza sativa Zn Transporter 1 (OZT1) that closely related to rat ZnT-2 (Zn Transporter 2) gene was(More)
The TFIIIA-type zinc finger transcription factors are involved in plant development and abiotic stress responses. Most TFIIIA-type zinc finger proteins are transcription repressors due to existence of an EAR-motif in their amino acid sequences. In this work, we found that ZFP182, a TFIIIA-type zinc finger protein, forms a homodimer in the nucleus and(More)
SNAREs play important roles in plant responses to various biotic and abiotic stresses. OsSNAP32 is a SNAP25-type SNARE protein-encoding gene isolated from rice. OsSNAP32 is ubiquitously expressed in the various tissues of blast-resistant rice landrace Heikezijing and blast-susceptible Suyunuo, with higher expression in Heikezijing and induced expression in(More)
Rice blast is a destructive disease caused by Magnaporthe oryzae, and it has a large impact on rice production worldwide. Compared with leaf blast resistance, our understanding of panicle blast resistance is limited. The japonica landrace Jiangnanwan from Taihu Lake region in China shows highly resistance to panicle and leaf blast. In this study, three(More)
The rice blast caused by Magnaporthe oryzae is one of the most devastating diseases worldwide, and the panicle blast could result in more loss of yield in rice production. However, the quantitative trait loci (QTLs) and genes related to panicle-blast resistance have not been well studied due to the time-consuming screening methodology involved and variation(More)
Bacterial blight, caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo), is a serious disease in rice production worldwide. To understand the genetic diversity of bacterial blight resistance a population consisting of 175 indica accessions from nine countries was collected and detected their association between SSR (Simple Sequence Repeat) markers and resistance to(More)
