Skinning injury in sweetpotatoes (Ipomoea batatas) is responsible for significant postharvest loss resulting from storage diseases and weight loss. Unfortunately, there is no report on the genes involved in wound healing of sweetpotato and a better understanding will facilitate improved breeding strategies. An annealing control primer (ACP) system was used to identify… Expand

Functional Classification of Skinning Injury Responsive Genes in Storage Roots of Sweetpotato
This study showed the importance of defense and stress responses genes to the formation of wound periderm and can be used for better understanding of the molecular mechanism of skinning/mechanical injury-related genes in the storage roots of sweetpotato as well as to all stems, fruits, and roots of all plants.

Transcript profiling of salt tolerant tobacco mutants generated via mutation breeding.
The current data reveal that these six DEGs should be identified by next generation sequencing techniques and functional analysis should be design to understand the role of these six differentially expressed genes of tobacco mutants in further studies to improve new genetic resources. Expand
Pre-harvest Curing: Effects on Skin Adhesion, Chemical Composition and Shelf-life of Sweetpotato Roots under Tropical Conditions
Roots subjected to pre-harvest curing for 10 and 14 days presented a potential for enhancing shelf life by having a significantly lower weight loss after 30 days of storage by demonstrating an active protein metabolism. Expand
Isolation and Identification of Differentially Expressed Genes from Wheat in Response to Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici (Bgt)
GeneFishing isolated a gene encoding for auxin-repressed protein (TaARP1) from the hybrid wheat alien disomic addition line germplasm SN6306, which is highly resistant to powdery mildew, and its function suggested that TaARP1 may be involved in the response to Bgt and may be a potential resistance gene to wheat powdery Mildew.

Intensive herbicide use has selected for constitutively elevated levels of stress-responsive mRNAs and proteins in multiple herbicide-resistant Avena fatua L.
The results support the idea that intensive herbicide use has selected for MHR populations with altered, constitutively regulated patterns of gene expression that are similar to those in abiotic stress-tolerant plants. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of the USDA Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) Germplasm Collections Using GBSpoly
In this study, population structure and genetic diversity of 417 USDA sweetpotato accessions originating from 8 broad geographical regions were determined using single nucleotide polymorphisms identified with a genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) protocol, GBSpoly, optimized for highly heterozygous and polyploid species.

Differential Expression of the Transcripts of Spartina alterniflora Loisel (Smooth Cordgrass) Induced in Response to Petroleum Hydrocarbon
To understand the effect of PHC on the gene expression profile of a wetland plant Spartina alterniflora in the coastal Louisiana, plants were subject up to 40% PHC under greenhouse conditions and showed 21% reduction of leaf total chlorophyll after 2 weeks of stress. Expand
cDNA-AFLP analysis reveals differential gene expression in response to salt stress in a halophyte Spartina alterniflora Loisel
This work used cDNA-AFLP as an RNA imaging technique to identify transcripts that are strongly accumulated and are induced de novo in response to salinity stress and identified 28 cDNAs that belong to different groups of genes involved in ion transport and compartmentalization, cell division, metabolism, and protein synthesis, etc. Expand
Identifying cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) genes induced in response to Aspergillus flavus infection
Development of aflatoxin-resistant cotton against Aspergillus flavus is handicapped by the lack of resistance source in available germplasm. Genetic engineering warrants for identification ofExpand
Primary responses to salt stress in a halophyte, smooth cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora Loisel.)
Evidence is provided that genes involved in ion transport, osmolyte production, and house-keeping functions may play an important role in the primary responses to salt stress in this grass halophyte. Expand
Sweetpotato cultivars differ in efficiency of wound healing
Wound healing efficiency as measured by the lignification score was found to be a major factor for the shelf-life of sweetpotato cultivars and correlated with reduced rate of weight loss and reduced susceptibility to microbial infection. Expand
The role of carbohydrates in wound-healing of sweetpotato roots at low humidity
Abstract It has previously been shown that sweetpotato cultivars differ in the efficiency by which their roots can heal wounds at low humidity, although this does not appear to relate to rate ofExpand
Effects of abiotic stresses on cyclophilin gene expression in maize and bean and sequence analysis of bean cyclophilin cDNA
Southern blot analysis suggests that maize CyP is encoded by a small family of genes but there is only a single CyP gene in bean, and CyP mRNA synthesis is not only stimulated by a mercuric chloride treatment but also by other abiotic stresses such as heat-shock, wounding, salt stress and low temperature. Expand
Heavy metal stress-inducible early light-inducible gene CaELIP from hot pepper (Capsicum annuum) shows broad expression patterns under various abiotic stresses and circadian rhythmicity
Results suggested that expression of CaELIP can be induced by the ROS generated by the excessive Cu in the plant, and would function in responding to environmental signals and possibly regulating the response to the abiotic stresses that can be related toThe abiotic stress tolerance in plants.

A novel receptor kinase involved in jasmonate-mediated wound and phytochrome signaling in maize coleoptiles.
It was found that both wounding and red light up-regulate the transcript level of ZmAOS, a gene for the jasmonate biosynthesis enzyme allene oxide synthase, and that auxin inhibits the expression of WPK1 but not of ZAMAOS. Expand
The Nicotiana sylvestris extensin gene, Ext 1.2A, is expressed in the root transition zone and upon wounding.
Data suggest that the (-630/+124) promoter region contains regulatory elements responsible for expression in roots and stems, as well as for response to wounding in stems and leaves. Expand
