Scientists Find New Molecular Mechanisms of Populus Duplicate Gene Retention
Gene duplication is the primary source of new genes and novel functions. A particular challenge is to understand the molecular mechanisms responsible for the initial retention and subsequent divergence of newly created duplicate genes. Recently, Dr. Qing-Yin Zeng and his collaborators from the Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, found that subcellular relocalization and posit...
A Novel Molecular Network of Wheat Vernalization
Vernalization, sensing of prolonged cold, is important for seasonal flowering in eudicots and monocots. The vernalization characteristics of winter wheat varieties and the adaptedness of winter temperatures directly affect the production. This interesting complex physical phenomenon has been found since 1918. Many progress has been made in genetics and physiological research. And a series of ve...
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...
