    Cell Wall Compositional Analysis of Rice Culms
    Authors:  Lanjun Zhang, Baocai Zhang and Yihua Zhou, date: 10/20/2019, view: 3097, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The plant cell wall is a complicated network that is mainly constituted of polysaccharides, such as cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin. Many noncellulosic polysaccharides are further acetylated, which confers these polymers flexible physicochemical properties. Due to the significance of cell wall in plant growth and development, the analytic ...
    Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae Inoculation and Growth Rate on Rice by Leaf Clipping Method
    Authors:  Yinggen Ke, Shugang Hui and Meng Yuan, date: 10/05/2017, view: 14397, Q&A: 1
    [Abstract] Bacterial blight caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) is one of the most serious bacterial diseases and a major impediment to the increase of rice yield. Appropriate methods for inoculation of Xoo and disease scoring are necessary to investigate the nature of the disease and the mechanism of plant ...
    Expression and Purification of the GRAS Domain of Os-SCL7 from Rice for Structural Studies
    Authors:  Shengping Li, Yanhe Zhao and Yunkun Wu, date: 02/05/2017, view: 6893, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] GRAS proteins, named after the first three members GAI, RGA and SRC, has been found in 294 embryophyta species and is represented by 1,035 sequences. They belong to a plant-specific protein family and play essential roles in plant growth and development. Proteins in this family are defined as minimally containing a conserved GRAS domain, which is ...
    The Use of a Dexamethasone-inducible System to Synchronize Xa21 Expression to Study Rice Immunity
    Authors:  Daniel F. Caddell, Tong Wei, Chang-Jin Park and Pamela C. Ronald, date: 05/05/2015, view: 11765, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Inducible gene expression systems offer researchers the opportunity to synchronize target gene expression at particular developmental stages and in particular tissues. The glucocorticoid receptor (GR), a vertebrate steroid receptor, has been well adopted for this purpose in plants. To generate steroid-inducible plants, a construct of GAL4-binding ...
    Measuring the Arsenic Content and Speciation in Different Rice Tissues
    Authors:  E. Marie Muehe, Andreas Kappler, Christina Chaban and Birgit Daus, date: 04/20/2015, view: 8903, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Arsenic (As) plays an important role in rice production as vast soils used for rice cultivation contain As. To understand how rice plants deal with inorganic As (III) and As (V) and organic As in their tissue, it is important to obtain specific information on how much and what species of As are present in which tissue of the rice plant. The ...
