The flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana is an important model system for identifying genes and determining their functions. Here we report the analysis of the genomic sequence of Arabidopsis. The sequenced regions cover 115.4 megabases of the 125-megabase genome and extend into centromeric regions. The evolution of Arabidopsis involved a whole-genome duplication, followed by subsequent gene loss and extensive local gene duplications, giving rise to a dynamic genome enriched by lateral gene transfer from a cyanobacterial-like ancestor of the plastid. The genome contains 25,498 genes encoding proteins from 11,000 families, similar to the functional diversity of Drosophila and Caenorhabditis elegans - the other sequenced multicellular eukaryotes. Arabidopsis has many families of new proteins but also lacks several common protein families, indicating that the sets of common proteins have undergone differential expansion and contraction in the three multicellular eukaryotes. This is the first complete genome sequence of a plant and provides the foundations for more comprehensive comparison of conserved processes in all eukaryotes, identifying a wide range of plant-specific gene functions and establishing rapid systematic ways to identify genes for crop improvement.

Motivation: Enormous demand for fast and accurate analysis of biological sequences is fuelled by the pace of genome analysis efforts. There is also an acute need in reliable up-to-date genomic databases integrating both functional and structural information. Here we describe the current status of the PEDANT software system for highthroughput analysis of large biological sequence sets and the genome analysis server associated with it. Results: The principal features of PEDANT are: (i) completely ...

The genome of the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana has five chromosomes1,2. Here we report the sequence of the largest, chromosome 1, in two contigs of around 14.2 and 14.6 megabases. The contigs extend from the telomeres to the centromeric borders, regions rich in transposons, retrotransposons and repetitive elements such as the 180-base-pair repeat. The chromosome represents 25% of the genome and contains about 6,850 open reading frames, 236 transfer RNAs (tRNAs) and 12 small nuclear RNAs....

Abstract Plant receptor kinases play key roles in the cell–cell recognition process during development, defense against pathogens, and self incompatibility. Recent identification of potential ligand molecules and downstream signaling components, together with biochemical studies on receptor-complex formation, have revealed an emerging picture of receptor-kinase activation and signal transduction in plants.

Abstract Caspases are cysteine proteases essential to apoptosis. We have identified two families of caspase-like proteins, Paracaspases (found in metazoans and Dictyostelium ) and metacaspases (found in plants, fungi, and protozoa). Metazoan paracaspase prodomains contain a death domain and immunoglobulin domains. Several plant metacaspase prodomains contain zinc finger motifs resembling those in the plant hypersensitive response/cell death protein lsd-1. The human paracaspase prodomain binds Bc...

In this brief survey, we have highlighted just a few examples where we can begin to trace the origins of novelty in the evolution of plant signaling pathways. The source materials derive from some expected sources, such as the progenitor of the chloroplast genome and genes inherited from the common ancestor of all eukaryotes, but also include a surprising number of novel genes of unknown origin. While the mechanisms that allow evolution of new functions for old genes are presumably similar in eu...

The availability of a nearly complete genome sequence for Arabidopsis has created many novel opportunities to identify, by computational methods, the genes that encode enzymes, which have been difficult to characterize by conventional means. We have used this approach to identify a large family of

Data from the Arabidopsis genome project suggest that more than 5% of the genes of this plant encode transcription factors. The necessity for the use of genomic analytical approaches becomes clear when it is considered that less than 10% of these factors have been genetically characterized. A variety of tools for functional genomic analyses in plants have been developed over the past few years. The availability of the full complement of Arabidopsis transcription factors, together with the result...

Ubiquitination is a highly regulated and common cellular process with E3s as central players. RING finger proteins represent the largest class of E3s to date. Whether RING fingers are primarily modules that mediate ubiquitination and other protein modifications or if they have other discrete functions should soon become apparent. Mammalian genomes encode hundreds of RING finger proteins. Extrapolating from in vitro studies, we predict that many of these have the capacity to interact with E2s and...

The toc1 mutation causes shortened circadian rhythms in light-grown Arabidopsis plants. Here, we report the same toc1 effect in the absence of light input to the clock. We also show that TOC1 controls photoperiodic flowering response through clock function. The TOC1 gene was isolated and found to encode a nuclear protein containing an atypical response regulator receiver domain and two motifs that suggest a role in transcriptional regulation: a basic motif conserved within the CONSTANS family of...

Fragaria vesca (F. vesca), the wild strawberry, is a diploid model for the commercial, octoploid strawberry as well as other members of the economically relevant Rosaceae family. Unlike the fruits of tomato and Arabidopsis, the fleshy fruit of strawberry is unique in that it is derived from the floral receptacle and has an external seed configuration. Thus, identification and subsequent characterization of receptacle-expressed genes may shed light on novel developmental processes or provide insi...

The leucine-rich repeat receptor-like protein kinase (LRR-RLK) plays an important role in plant development and disease defence. Although genome-wide studies of LRR-RLKs have been performed in several species, a comprehensive analysis, including evolutionary, structural and expressional analyses and their relationships to function, has not been carried out in the radish (Raphanus sativus L.). In this study, we identified 292 LRR-RLK genes in the R. sativus genome and classified them into 23 subg...

The growing population requires sustainable, environmentally-friendly crops. The plant growth-enhancing properties of algal extracts have suggested their use as biofertilisers. The mechanism(s) by which algal extracts affect plant growth are unknown. We examined the effects of extracts from the common green seaweed Ulva intestinalis on germination and root development in the model land plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Ulva extract concentrations above 0.1% inhibited Arabidopsis germination and root g...

Broomcorn millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) has strong tolerance to abiotic stresses, and is probably one of the oldest crops, with its earliest cultivation that dated back to ca. ~10,000 years. We report here its genome assembly through a combination of PacBio sequencing, BioNano, and Hi-C (in vivo) mapping. The 18 super scaffolds cover ~95.6% of the estimated genome (~887.8 Mb). There are 63,671 protein-coding genes annotated in this tetraploid genome. About ~86.2% of the syntenic genes in foxtail...

Efficient crop improvement depends on the application of accurate genetic information contained in diverse germplasm resources. Here we report a reference-grade genome of wild soybean accession W05, with a final assembled genome size of 1013.2 Mb and a contig N50 of 3.3 Mb. The analytical power of the W05 genome is demonstrated by several examples. First, we identify an inversion at the locus determining seed coat color during domestication. Second, a translocation event between chromosomes 11 a...

Abstract Herein, five polyphenol oxidases (PPOs) obtained from Morus notabilis (Mn) were characterized. Chlorogenic acid was the most readily oxidized substrate by these MnPPOs, and the products derived from the oxidation of chlorogenic acid by MnPPOs were tested for antimicrobial activity. The results showed that products of the five MnPPOs exhibited good inhibitory effects against Escherichia coli , Pseudomonas aeruginosa , Staphylococcus aureus , Sclerotinia sclerotiorum , and Botrytis cinere...
