Abstract Intracellular Ca2+ plays an essential role in plant cellular sensing of various environmental stress signals by modulating the activity of Ca2+-binding proteins. Leymus chinensis is a dominant forage grass widely distributed in the Eurasian Steppe that is well adapted to drought and salty soils common in the region. Through transcript profiling of L. chinensis roots, we identified a transcript predicted to encode histidine-rich calcium-binding protein (HRC), a protein recently character...

Abstract Arabidopsis thaliana BRANCHING ENZYME 1 (AtBE1) is a chloroplast-localized embryo-lethal gene previously identified in knockout mutants. AtBE1 is thought to function in carbohydrate metabolism; however, this has not been experimentally demonstrated. Chlorosis is a typical symptom of cesium (Cs) toxicity in plants. The genetic target of Cs toxicity is largely unknown. Here, we isolated a Cs+-tolerant and chlorophyll-defective Arabidopsis ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) mutant, atbe1-5. Mapp...
Abstract Ionizing radiation is a genotoxic anthropogenic stressor. It can cause heritable changes in the plant genome, which can be either adaptive or detrimental. There is still considerable uncertainty about the effects of chronic low-intensity doses since earlier studies reported somewhat contradictory conclusions. Our project focused on the recovery from the multiyear chronic ionizing radiation stress. Soybean (Glycine max) was grown in field plots located at the Chernobyl exclusion zone and...

Abstract Transglycanases are enzymes that remodel the primary cell wall in plants, potentially loosening and/or strengthening it. Xyloglucan endotransglucosylase (XET; EC, ubiquitous in land plants, is a homo-transglucanase activity (donor, xyloglucan; acceptor, xyloglucan) exhibited by XTH (xyloglucan endotransglucosylase/hydrolase) proteins. By contrast, hetero-trans-β-glucanase (HTG) is the only known enzyme that is preferentially a hetero-transglucanase. Its two main hetero-transg...

Abstract NAD-malic enzyme (EC activity, expression and methylation of promoters of its two genes was studied in maize (Zea mays L.) leaves depending on light regime. The total activity was high in darkness and upon irradiation by far-red light and suppressed by white light and by red light. The changes in the levels of transcripts of the genes Me1 and Me2 encoding NAD-malic enzyme revealed their dependence on irradiation in opposite ways. White and red light decreased the quantity of m...

Abstract Fig fruit is well-known for its attractive flavor, color, and nutritional and medicinal value. Anthocyanin contributes to the fruit's color and constitutes a high percentage of the total antioxidant content of the fig fruit. We quantified the major anthocyanins and characterized the expression levels of anthocyanin-biosynthesis and transcription factor genes in fruit treated on-tree with exogenous abscisic acid (ABA) or ethephon, or the ABA inhibitors nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) or...

Severe environments disturb the folding or assembly of newly synthesized proteins, resulting in accumulation of misfolded or unfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) as well as cytotoxic aggregation of abnormal proteins. Therefore, ER stress is evoked due to disturbed ER homeostasis. Alternative oxidase (AOX) plays an important role in coping with various abiotic stresses and plant growth. Our previous study has reported that PpAOX is involved in the regulation of salt tolerance in mo...

: Several Lotus species are perennial forage legumes which tolerate waterlogging, but knowledge of responses to partial or complete shoot submergence is scant. We evaluated the responses of 15 Lotus accessions to partial and complete shoot submergence and variations in traits associated with tolerance and recovery after de-submergence. Accessions of Lotus tenuis, L. corniculatus, L. pedunculatus and L. japonicus were raised for 43 d and then subjected to aerated root zone (control), deoxygenated...
