Small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) are a class of molecular chaperones that bind to and prevent aggregation of proteins. To assess the potential role of sHSPs in protection against abiotic stresses, we conducted a screening of sHSP genes from the desiccation-tolerant resurrection plant Boea hygrometrica, which is widespread in East Asia in alkaline,(More)
Along with the rapid development of the Internet, Web has become most importmant resource of information. It is getting more difficult to fast and accurately find useful information from the gigantic amount of data provided by Web. The Web usage mining is the process inferring valuable knowledge by analyzing users' access information, which is of great(More)
Adverse environmental conditions cause endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in plants. To mitigate ER stress damage, ER associated transcription factors and inositol-requiring enzyme-1 (IRE1)-mediated bZIP60 mRNA splicing are activated in plants. A drought-induced gene, encoding the ortholog of AtbZIP60, was identified in the resurrection plant Boea(More)
Excessive Ca is toxic to plants thus significantly affects plant growth and species distribution in Ca-rich karst areas. To understand how plants survive high Ca soil, laboratory experiments were established to compare the physiological responses and internal Ca distribution in organ, tissue, cell, and intracellular levels under different Ca levels for(More)
