Plant roots respond to environmental stresses or the exogenous plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) by undergoing marked physiological and morphological changes. We show here that PERK4, a gene that encodes a member of the Arabidopsis thaliana proline-rich extensin-like receptor kinase family, plays an important role in ABA responses. Mutation of PERK4 by(More)
Cryosection in plants is usually challenging because of the larger amounts of water contained in plant cell than animal cell. The formation of ice crystals within the plant cells easily destroys subcellular detail during freeze processing. And cell walls make freezing plant tissues hardly sliced and preserve the cell structure in subtle ways. In this study,(More)
The emergence of anti-influenza A virus drugs resistant strain highlights the need for more effective therapy. Our earlier study demonstrated that c-jun, a downstream molecule of JNK, might be important in viral infections and inflammatory responses. In the present study, we explored the function of DNAzymes Dz13 that target c-jun in influenza A virus(More)
