Soluble starch synthase (SSS) is a key enzyme in the biosynthesis of plant amylopectin. To reveal the starch synthesis pathway in lotus, we cloned a gene named NnSSSIII from Nelumbo nucifera in this study. A full-length cDNA of soluble starch synthase (SSS), designated as NnSSSIII, which was 4070 bp (GenBank accession NO. KR062069) containing a 3696 bp open reading frame and encoding a protein of 1231 amino acid. Twenty SNPs of NnSSSIII were found from three breeds of lotus, which resulted in 13...

Twenty-two sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera), 46 taros (Colocasia esculenta) and 10 arrowheads (Sagittaria trifolia) were used as materials and combined with EST-SSR (expressed sequence tag-simple sequence repeats) primers developed by our laboratory. Core primers were screened from a large number of primers that were able to distinguish all materials with a high frequency of polymorphisms. Six pairs, twenty pairs and three pairs of core primers were screened from sacred lotus, taro, and arrowhead...

Miscanthus lutarioriparia, which is found widespread in China, has attracted great attention as a most potential bioenergy plant for years. The quantitative real time PCR (RT-qPCR) has appeared as a sensitive and powerful technique to measure gene expression in living organisms during different development stages. In this study, we evaluated ten candidate genes, including 25S ribosomal RNA gene (25S rRNA), actin1 gene (ACT1), carotenoid-binding protein 20 gene (CBP20), glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate...

Selection index (SI) theory has been applied to predict the net genetic merit, select parents for the next cycle, and maximize the selection response in plant breeding. However, up to now, SI has not been applied to predict unobserved hybrid performance. In hybrid breeding, it is impossible to test every cross, and accurate prediction can help breeders greatly reduce the experimental cost. Traditional genomic selection (GS) targets single-trait prediction, and useful information about other rela...

Amorphophallus (Araceae) contains more than 170 species that are mainly distributed in Asia and Africa. Because the bulbs of Amorphophallus are rich in glucomannan, they have been widely used in food, medicine, the chemical industry and so on. To better understand the evolutionary relationships and mutation patterns in the chloroplast genome of Amorphophallus, the complete chloroplast genomes of four species were sequenced. The chloroplast genome sequences of A. albus, A. bulbifer, A. konjac and...

The normal growth of Nelumbo nucifera, a widely planted aquatic crop in Asia, was severely ruined by replant disease. The mechanism of replant disease was still unknown in aquatic crops. Complementary transcriptomic and proteomic analyses were performed by comparing seedings of first-year planting (FP) and consecutive planting (CP). 9810 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified between FP and CP. Additionally, 975 differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) were obtained. The correlati...

Abstract With marker and phenotype information from observed populations, genomic selection (GS) can be used to establish associations between markers and phenotypes. It aims to use genome-wide markers to estimate the effects of all loci and thereby predict the genetic values of untested populations, so as to achieve more comprehensive and reliable selection and to accelerate genetic progress in crop breeding. GS models usually face the problem that the number of markers is much higher than the ...

Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are noncoding small endogenous RNAs with approximate 22 nucleotides and have been identified as the key regulators in the translational level regulation of gene expression by either directly binding or cleaving target mRNAs. In plant, miRNAs have been shown to control numerous genes involved in a wide variety of metabolic and biological processes. Increasing extensive studies have been performed on model species and important agricultural crops including Arabidopsis t...

Background Hybrid breeding is an effective tool to improve yield in rice, while parental selection remains the key and difficult issue. Genomic selection (GS) provides opportunities to predict the performance of hybrids before phenotypes are measured. However, the application of GS is influenced by several genetic and statistical factors. Here, we used a rice North Carolina II (NC II) population constructed by crossing 115 rice varieties with five male sterile lines as a model to evaluate effect...
