Researchers reveal catalytic mechanism of triterpene diversity in plant
Plants synthesize more than 200, 000 structurally diversified metabolites. There are over 20, 000 terpenoids with known structures. Many terpenoids play important roles in plant growth and development, and adaptation to the environments. Triterpenoids, such as triterpenoid saponins from Panax ginseng and Panax notoginseng, are the major bioactive compositions for these medicine plants....
Scientists reveal triterpene biosynthesis regulating a novel humidity-sensitive male steri...
In flowering plants, pollen coat, the outermost layer of pollen grains, protects the released pollen grain from desiccation, damage and pathogen attack. The mutants that are deficient in genes restricted in pollen coat formation generally are conditional male sterile. Studies on pollen coat forming will find new male-sterile materials for hybrid breeding in crops. A research group led ...
Scientists Reveal the Evolutionary History of the Angiosperm Flora of China
High species diversity within a geographic area may be attributed to either recent rapid speciation in a ‘cradle’ or the gradual accumulation and preservation of species over time in a ‘museum’. China, home to 30,000 species of the approximately 350,000–400,000 species of vascular plants, is ideal for investigating patterns of biodiversity. Whether areas within China serve as ...
