Differential contributions to the transcriptome of duplicated genes in response to abiotic stresses in natural and synthetic polyploids.

Abstract

Polyploidy has occurred throughout plant evolution and can result in considerable changes to gene expression when it takes place and over evolutionary time. Little is known about the effects of abiotic stress conditions on duplicate gene expression patterns in polyploid plants. We examined the expression patterns of 60 duplicated genes in leaves, roots and… (More)
