Dr. Chaoying He's Group Found Genetic Basis of Natural Variation in Tomatillo Reproductive...
The genetic basis of plant reproductive organ size is poorly understood. Dr. Chaoying He’s group found that the expression levels of the gene Physalis Organ Size1 (POS1) were positively associated with size variation in Physalis philadelphica (tomatillo) reproductive organs such flowers, berries and seeds. POS1 knockdown resulted in smaller flowers and berries with smaller cells as compared to...
Researchers Provide Direct Evidence for Environmentally Enhanced Forest Growth
Forests in the middle and high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere function as a significant sink for atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). This carbon (C) sink results from two major processes: age-related growth (regrowth) after land use change and growth enhancement due to environmental changes (simply called as 'growth enhancement' thereafter), such as elevated CO2, nitrogen (N) deposition, an...
Researchers Reveal the Regulation Mechanism of NADPH Oxidase in Response to Abiotic Stresses
The respiratory burst oxidase homolog (rboh) proteins, the homologue of mammalian 91-kD glycoprotein subunit of phagocyte oxidase (gp91phox), play important roles in plant defense responses, and the regulation of plant growth and development. These rboh proteins function as the essential regulators of ROS in responses to biotic or abiotic stresses. Although earlier studies focused on the rboh p...
