In the last decade, our understanding of rice domestication has improved by new archaeological findings using advanced analytical techniques such as morphological and morphometric analysis on rice grains, spikelet bases and phytoliths, and ancient DNA analysis on rice remains. Previous studies have considered the size of rice bulliform phytoliths as a proxy for tracking the domestication process. These phytoliths are often abundant and well preserved in sediments, and their shape is under the co...

The aim of this study was to determine the influence of two types of UV-A LEDs on the growth and accumulation of phytochemicals in kale (Brassica oleracea var. acephala). Fourteen-day-old kale seedlings were transferred to a growth chamber and cultivated for 3 weeks. The kale plants were subsequently subjected to two types of UV-A LEDs (370 and 385 nm) of 30 W/m2 for 5 days. Growth characteristics were all significantly increased in plants exposed to UV-A LEDs, especially at the 385 nm level, fo...

With the advent of next generation sequencing technologies, whole plastome data can be obtained as a byproduct of low coverage sequencing of the plant genomic DNA. This provides an opportunity to study plastid evolution across groups, as well as testing phylogenetic relationships among taxa. Within the order Malpighiales (~16,000 spp.), the Podostemaceae (~300 spp.) stand out for their unique habit, living attached to rocks in fast-flowing aquatic habitats, and displaying highly modified morphol...

The chemical diversity of plants is very high, and plant-based foods provide almost all the nutrients necessary for human health, either directly or indirectly. With advancements in plant metabolomics studies, the concept of nutritional metabolites has been expanded and updated. Because the concentration of many nutrients is usually low in plant-based foods, especially those from crops, metabolome-assisted breeding techniques using molecular markers associated with the synthesis of nutritional m...

Potato is considered having a low phosphorus (P) efficiency compared to other crops. Therefore, P fertilization requirements are high. New cultivars with improved P efficiency may contribute to save limited mineral P sources and to reduce eutrophication of surface water bodies. The present study aims to characterize the P efficiency of different potato genotypes and to identify mechanisms, which improve P efficiency in cultivated potato. A diversity set of 32 potato accessions was used to assess...

Several members of the MYB transcription factor family have been found to regulate growth, developmental processes, metabolism and biotic and abiotic stress responses in plants. However, the role of MYB116 in plants is still unclear. In this study, a MYB transcription factor gene IbMYB116 was cloned and characterized from the sweetpotato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.] line Xushu55-2, a line that is considered to be drought resistant. We show here that IbMYB116 is a nuclear protein and that it posse...

RNA interference (RNAi) is a technique used for transgene mediated gene silencing based on the mechanism of post-transcriptional gene-silencing (PTGS). PTGS is a ubiquitous basic biological phenomenon involved in the regulation of transcript abundance and plants´ immune response to viruses. PTGS also mediates genomic stability by silencing of retroelements. RNAi has become an important research tool for studying gene function by strong and selective suppression of target genes. Here we present s...
