      Abstract (1784) HTML (0) PDF 1.99 M (1611) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:To study the distribution of radiation sensitivity and expression patterns of TaKu70 and TaKu80 genes that are core factors in DNA repair process, 259 wheat mini core collection genotypes were irradiated by γ-rays with 0, 100, 150 and 250 Gy doses. Through germination test, the damage rate of seedling height showed 3 types of function relationships with the doses of γ-rays irradiation: logarithmic, linear and power function. Using HD50 as the measurement of radiation sensitivity, the 259 mini core collection genotypes could be divided into four categories: sensitive (contained 10 genotypes), medium sensitive (contained 96 genotypes), medium insensitive (contained 101 genotypes), and insensitive (contained 52 genotypes). There were more sensitive and medium sensitive genotypes in the logarithmic function relationship. And the expression levels of TaKu70 and TaKu80 genes were up-regulated by increasing of γ-rays doses compared with 0 Gy, but not affected significantly. There were more medium sensitive and medium insensitive genotypes in the linear function relationship. And the expression levels of TaKu70 and TaKu80 genes were gradually up-regulated by increasing of γ-rays doses compared with 0 Gy. There were more medium insensitive and insensitive genotypes in the power function relationship. And the expression levels of TaKu70 and TaKu80 were up-regulated compared with 0 Gy, but up-regulated firstly and then down-regulated with the increasing of γ-rays doses, and the general expression peaked at 150 Gy.

      Abstract:It is very important to studying the genetic diversity of sea island cotton based on genetic and phenotypic characteristics, which can provide a theoretical basis for sea island cotton hybrid breeding in selecting parents, introduce new germplasm resources for broadening the range of genetics and breed new varieties. This study analyzed the genetic diversity of Sea Island cotton in 94 germplasm based on the identification of 125 SSR molecular markers and investigation of 13 phenotypic traits in the field in two years, and classified into different groups and comparied them according to their differences in genetic traits and phenotypic traits. The results were as following: (1) there were 420 loci being detected using molecular markers, of which 249 loci were polymorphism, and Nei-Li similarity coefficient method were applied to estimate the genetic similarity coefficient between 94 sea island cotton varieties. It was showed that the genetic similarity coefficient was between 0.46~ 0.95. Meanwhile these 94 sea island cotton varieties were divided into four groups using SSR molecular markers and the classification results were in agreement with the results of pedigree analysis. (2) The results of phenotypictraits showed that the range of the quality traits were wide while the range of yield traits were narrow. According to the diversity cluster analysis, the diversity index of micronaire value was the highest among these traits, on the contrary, the diversity index of single boll weight was the lowest. It was also found that type Ⅰ had wider range in yield and the quality in the middle of these types; type II was with low value both in yield and quality; type III had higher mean value in yield than others; and type IV was not good at yield trait, but it’s fiber trait was better than others. (3) Combination of SSR markers and agronomic traits analysis showed that the genetic diversity of 94 sea island cotton germplams was rich. These two methods had the same results in classification and the results of clasification had been related with geographic distribution.

      Abstract:Genetic diversity and genetic structure of wild banana resources from watershed in Fujian province were examined by ISSR. The results showed that: 117 bands were amplified with 12 ISSR primers, polymorphic bands of which were 105, and their polymorphism percentage was 89.7%. The Nei’s genetic distance was 0.244, the Shannon’s information index was 0.381, the genetic diversity in different natural populations has significant difference and the Sanming wild banana was higher. The coefficient of gene differentiation was 0.589, gene flow was 0.349, the genetic differentiation among the populations was higher than that within the population. The clustering result based on Nei’s genetic distance was the same as model-cluster-method, the banana resources were clustered into 3 groups, including Sanming wild banana group in Shaxi tributary, Nanping wild banana group in Minjiang upstream and nearby tributary, and Fuzhou wild banana group in Minjiang downstream group. The results indicated that the rich genetic diversity comes from the high frequency of heritable variation among national populations that resulted from heterogeneous habitats in Minjiang watershed. The genetic diversity and genetic divergence of Sanming wild banana group was the highest, and it may be the original center of Fujian wild banana resources, which was also the most important community to utilize and protect. In addition, water was a key factor of genetic transfer in Minjiang watershed.

      Abstract (1781) HTML (0) PDF 1.77 M (1671) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:In this paper, drought tolerance at the germination stage of 15 peanut varieties (lines) was identified by PEG6000 treatment. The index took into account 8 indicators including relative germination energy, germination rate, germination index, radicle length, hypocotyl length, buds length and seedling fresh/dry weight. The results indicated that seed germination was promoted by low level of PEG6000 at early stage of stress treatment, but restrained with the extension of processing time and higher concentration. Except for the relative buds length, all other indicators were significantly positively correlated with the comprehensive drought tolerance of each variety. Based on subordination function method and the standard classification of tolerant ability in peanut, we screened 4 drought tolerant varieties (JS2, 6, 14, 15) and 3 mediate tolerant varieties (JS3, 11, 13), indicating the method as a quick and convenient technique in identification of drought tolerance of peanut germination.

      Abstract:Primula maximowicizii is a typical heterostyly species in genus Primula, which mainly distributed in northern China. To elucidate the diversity of pollen morphology, micromorphological characteristics of pollens in seven natural P. maximowicizii populations were investigated using SEM method. The polar view of most pollens were triangular, and the type of germinal aperture was trisyncolpate. Pollens of short-styled flowers were signi?cantly larger than those of long-styled flowers. Ornamentation of the pollens of short-styled flowers were reticulate with lumina of up to 0.4μm wide, and the pollens of long-styled flowers were microreticulate or verrucate with lumina of up to 0.23μm wide. The pollens’ characters were significantly different among populations with coefficient variation (CV) from 4.88% to 35.48%., and the average CV of short-styled flowers was 16.18%, the average CV of long-styled flowers was 14.89%. Acccording to the morphological characteristics of pollens, the seven P. maximowicizii populations were classified into two groups by UPGMA cluster analysis. The results provided theoretical data for genetic diversity research on P. maximowicizii.

      Abstract (1510) HTML (0) PDF 3.62 M (1539) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:Three groups of Iris dichotoma with different flower colors were investigated by morphological comparison and Karyotype analysis. The results indicated that there were obvious differences among the three groups with violet, yellow and white flowers, respectively. Their flowering time were 15:00, 14:00 and 16:00, and closing time were was 19:30, 19:00 and 20:00, respectively. The respective average variation coefficients of I. dichotoma with different flower colors were 10.47%~65.16%, 4.46%~45.95% and 3.95%~55.43%. The variation of 13 characters of three groups such as flower diameter, outer perianth, inner perianth and fruit length had significant difference, while there was no significant difference in the tillering number and the number of seeds. The analysis of karyotype demonstrated that the karyotype formula for I. dichotoma (Violet) was 2n=2x=32=12sm 20m, and the karyotype was 1B. The chromosome number and karyotype of I. dichotoma(Yellow) were reported here for the first time and its karyotype formula was 2n=2x=32=6sm 26m, belonging to "1A" type. The karyotype of I. dichotoma(White) was 2B, whose karyotype formula was 2n=2x=32=8sm 24m. By the analysis of karyotype and variation of morphological characters, the genetic relationships among the three different flower color groups of I. dichotoma were discussed, which showed that their phylogenetic relationships were relatively close and I. dichotoma(Yellow) as well as I. dichotoma(White) should be the intraspecific variation of I. dichotoma (Violet).

      Abstract (1547) HTML (0) PDF 1.54 M (1523) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:In this work, pot experiment was conducted in Beijing to study the differences in biomass and its allocation of 14 switchgrass. The results showed that the low-land switchgrass Kanlow produced the most biomass with dry weights of stems, aboveground parts and the whole plant reaching to 175.48 g/plant, 299.18 g/plant and 447.66 g/plant, respectively. While, the up-land switchgrass Nebraska produced the least biomass with dry weights of stems, aboveground parts and the whole plant being 20.53 g/plant, 58.08 g/plant and 140.51 g/plant, respectively. Taking the whole plant into consideration, Kanlow allocated the highest proportion (63.13%) of biomass into aboveground parts compared to the other switchgrass cultivars, while the lowest (40.55%) was found in Canada. Moreover, Kanlow allocated the highest proportion (48.67%) of biomass into aboveground vegetative organs and the lowest proportion (31.88%) was found in Nebraska. Taking aboveground parts of switchgrass as a whole, Alamo, Kanlow and Trailblazer allocated higher proportion of biomass (35.91%, 37.09% and 34.39%, respectively) into stalks and higher stems/leaves ratio (2.75, 2.56 and 2.48, respectively) was found compared with other switchgrass cultivars. The origin latitude significantly influenced the switchgrass biomass and its allocation. Considering the whole switchgrass plant, there was significant negative correlation between the origin latitude and switchgrass biomass. Significant positive correlations between the origin latitude and biomass proportion of belowground parts and the significant negative correlations between origin latitude and the biomass proportion of aboveground parts, seeds as well as stems were also found. When talking about aboveground parts of switchgrass, a significant negative correlations between origin latitude and stems biomass proportion as well as the stems/leaves ratio were found, while significant positive correlations exhibited between origin latitude and leaves and sheaths biomass proportion. The differences of biomas and its allocation reflected a reproductive and growth strategy long-term adaptive to the ecological environment in switchgrass. This work provides the basis for introduction of genetic resources and the variety breeding of switchgrass.

      2016, 17(2):295-302.

      Abstract (1617) HTML (0) PDF 1.66 M (1509) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:The cut flowers of Paeonia suffruticosa ‘ Luoyang Hong ’ were used as materials. Effects of different temperature treatments (22℃,15℃ and 4℃) on flower color and anthocyanin biosynthesis were researched. The results showed that : compeared with 22℃, flowers under 15℃ and 4℃ treatments showed lower lightness, higher redness, higher chroma and increased anthocyanin accumulation. Color quality is obviously better than that of 22℃ treatment. qRT-PCR was used to analyze the relative expression levels of anthocyanin biosynthetic genes and results showed that 15℃ and 4℃ treatments promoted anthocyanin biosynthesis in the cut flowers via the promotion of related genes transcription (PsCHS1, PsCHI1, PsF3’H1, PsANS1, PsDFR1, PsMYB2, PsbHLH1 and PsbHLH3). Low-temperature mainly regulated and controled anthocyanin biosynthesis by upstream gene PsCHS1 and PsCHI1. Downstream genes PsDFR1, PsANS1 and PsF3’H1 were sensitive to low-temperature, which have the biggest increase transcription by 4℃ treatment. The above mentioned structural and regulatory genes were the important key of the anthocyanin biosynthesis.

      Abstract:AT-hook proteins play an important role in regulation of eukaryotic gene expression, and implicated in plant development, organ formation, stress response, and hormonal signaling. In this study, our analysis revealed the presence of 32 genes encoding AT-hook proteins in the tomato genome, the distribution on the chromosome, the structure and function of proteins were analyzed. AT-hook proteins could be classified into 3 type based on phylogenetic analysis. , 13 of them belong to Type I, and other members have the similar classification with Arabidopsis thaliana, which was supported with organization of predicted conserved putative motifs in AT-hook proteins. Real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR were used to gain insights into the function of AT-hook gene family members during various stages of development and in response to abiotic stress and phytohormones. Some of the AHL genes were expressed in specific organs such as roots and flowers; 32 SlAHL genes showed distinct expression patterns in response to stresses of salt, SA, ABA, high temperature and cold, the expressions of several genes were significantly up/down regulated, implying that these members might participate in regulating the defense response against abiotic stresses. The results will provide a very useful reference for cloning and functional analysis of each member of AT-hook gene family in Solanaceae crops.

      Abstract (1807) HTML (0) PDF 6.73 M (1443) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:Aquaporins (AQPs) are the members of the major intrinsic proteins (MIPs) family with extraordinary ability to transport water, and play important roles in modulation of water relationships in plants. In this study, based on the genome database of Pyrus communis L. ‘Bartlett’ (http://www.rosaceae.org/species/pyrus/pyrus_communis/genome_v1.0), the AQPs gene family of Pyrus communis were identified and the sequences characteristic, phylogenetic trees, gene structure, GO function and expression profiles were analyzed. The phylogenetic tree was constructed using MEGA 6.0.5 software with neighbor-joining method. The structure of the genes were analyzed by GSDS 2.0 software, the motif was analyzed by MEME program, and GO analysis was carried by AgBase v2.00 software. Their expression patterns in different tissues were studied with semi RT-PCR. The results showed that there were 54 PcAQPs genes which containing AQP feature domains and conserved motifs were identified systematically in Pyrus communis. According to the gene structure, conserved domains and phylogeny relationship, the PcAQPs proteins were classified into 4 subfamilies (PIP, TIP, NIP and SIP) and the structure difference was larger between different subfamily genes, however, the genes with close relationship cluster had similar structure. GO analysis showed that the majority of PcAQPs gene had transporter activity, involved in substance transportation, stress response, growth, metabolism and other biological processes, but there were obvious differences in cellular components and biological processes between different subfamily members. Semi RT-PCR results showed that most of PcAQPs genes were expressed in roots, stems, leaves, and fruits, and the expression patterns of different genes and different subfamilies were different. These results laid foundation for cloning and functional analysis of PcAQPs gene in Pyrus communis.

      2016, 17(2):337-343.

      Abstract (1698) HTML (0) PDF 2.72 M (1345) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:Abstract:RING(Really Interesting New Gene) ubiquitin ligases play significant roles in rice, such as growth, development,resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. In this study,we cloned the RING finger gene (OsRING6) from the Japonica cultivar Nipponbare (Oryza sativa) based on the sequence analysis of the rice genome and the RT-PCR method. The OsRING6 full cDNA consists of 1355 bp nucleotides and contains a CDS of 918 bp nucleotides,and encoding a protein of 315 amino acids with the deduced molecular weight of 32.96 kD and a pI value of 3.49. The similarity comparison revealed that the CDS sequence of OsRING6 shared 97% and 83% homology with Oryza sativa Indica (CT832014) and Oryza brachyantha (XM_006659599),respectively. The relative molecular weight of the MBP-OsRING6 recombinant protein induced by IPTG was about 100 kD,which was much bigger than deduced value of 76 kD. Promoter analysis indicated that it contains several regulatory elements related to drought stress, light response,ABA and GA signal transduction. Real-time PCR experiments showed that OsRING6 was expressed mainly in root,stem,leaves,leaf sheath,flowers and seed,and its expression level was the highest in germinated seeds and the lowest in flowers among these detected tissues. We also found that OsRING6 could be induced when treated with salt and ABA,respectively,and inhibited by PEG. These data suggest that OsRING6 might be involved in abiotic stresses such as slat and drought, and could be used for further functional study and breeding in rice.

      Abstract:GluTR encoded by HEMA1 is the key enzyme in regulating chlorophyll biosynthesis. In this study, the encoding gene was cloned from apple leaves by RACE technology and designated as MdHEMA1. Bioinformatics analysis revealed that MdHEMA1 locates on chromosome 8 of apple genome, with a CDS length of 1638 bp and encodes 545 amino acid residues. The calculated molecular mass is 59279.4 Da with an isoelectric point of 8.45. Sequence analysis showed that MdHEMA1 protein contains 3 conserved domains. MdHEMA1 possesses the closest phylogenetic relationship with PbHEMA1 from Pyrus×bretschneideri. qRT-PCR results revealed that MdHEMA1 exhibited a highexpression level in photosynthetic tissues compared with that in other tissues. Besides, the expression level of MdHEMA1 varied in leaves and fruits at different developmental stages, which was positively correlated with the level of chlorophyll accumulation. The gene expression could also be induced by drought stress. Promoter analysis revealed that MdHEMA1 promoter possessed multiple putative cis-acting elements involved in abiotic stress.

      Abstract:The study of MybA genotypes in different grape cultivars can provide the basis for identification and classification of grape cultivars as well as selection of parents in grape breeding. The result of MybA genotyping in 118 primary core collection of grape genetic resources shows that most Vitis vinifera cultivars and their hybrids have VvmybA1a which is an allele of VvmybA1 gene, with the exception of 10 Vitis vinifera cultivars and their hybrids. VvmybA1, VvmybA2 and VvmybA3 genes were all detected in most Vitis vinifera, hybrids of V. labrusca and V. Vinifera, and hybrid wine grapes, except for a few grape cultivars with VvmybA2 or VvmybA3 undetected. Hybrids of V. amurensis and V. vinifera, Beimei, Xiongyuebai and Gongniangyihao have all VvmybA1, VvmybA2 and VvmybA3, while Beichun and Beihong have only VvmybA1 and VvmybA3. VlmybA2 gene were only detected in some hybrids of V. labrusca and V. vinifera, and hybrid wine grapes. It is noteworthy that in five Vitis labrusca cultivars VvmybA1a (typical genotype of V. vinifera) but not VlmybA2 was detected. We speculate that they are the hybrids of V. labrusca and V. vinifera, with more V. labrusca parentage, and they are not the pure Vitis labrusca.

      Abstract:The waxy gene sequences including microsatellite sequence (CT)n and the part of first intron were amplificated and sequenced using the PCR pecific primers Wx-F / AG-2 for 252 rice landraces from 16 areas 64 counties of Yunnan. The results showed that Four variable sites were detected in the waxy gene sequences incuding 260 bases. The (CT)n variation duplicate number 10, 11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 was tested at site 56 of the first intron upstream; The variation G / T was present in the first intron 1 site and T only was present in the cultivars with (CT)n length greater than 16 breeds; There were three variations include ATA / GTA /A at 86-88 site; There were two (AATT) n variations (5 and 6) duplicate number at 128 site. According to these four polymorphic sites, the 252 Yunnan rice landraces were classified into 16 genotypes, which Wx4 (32.54%), Wx9 (13.89%), Wx12 (12.7%), Wx5 (12.3%), Wx1 (8.33%), Wx11 (7.94%) were the main type, other types of frequency were lower. There were differentiation in genotype types and genotype frequencies between Indica / japonica subspecies, water / upland rice and sticky / glutinous rice. The indica / japonica, water / upland rice and no-glutinous / glutinous rice subspecies or ecotypes had exclusive genotype, shared genotype frequency also had differences. This indicated that genetic differentiation were occurred between subspecies or ecotypes. Geographical distribution of genotypes showed that Lincang, Puer genotype species were the most abundant, and expansion outward as it the center, genotype species were decreasing trend, the T at the first intron 1 site were mainly distributed in Lincang, Pu'er, Banna, Dehong and other southern regions. This study revealed the waxy gene the variability and distribution of Yunnan rice landraces groups.

      Abstract:To screen the new wheat germplasm resistant to crown rot in Huang huai wheat area and establish the new identified method for the resistance which can distinguish the other disease in the basal straw of wheat, the resistance to crown rot of one hundred and eight varieties coming from Huang huai wheat area was evaluated by seedling survey method in the house and the DNA contents of Fusarium graminearum in the basal straw of forty-five wheat varieties were detected simultaneously by Real-time PCR so as to analyze the relationship between the DNA content of Fusarium graminearum and the resistance to crown rot of wheat. Twenty-two varieties with moderate resistance to crown rot were screened out, but no more resistant or immune varieties were found. The correlation analysis showed that, between the Fusarium graminearum DNA content in the basal straw of wheat and the average disease grade, there was significant correlation with the correlation coefficient 0.73, indicating that the Fusarium graminearum DNA content in the basal straw of wheat could be used as the important reference to determine the resistance to crown rot of wheat. The new wheat gerplasm and the Real-time PCR method used for the resistance evaluation will be helpful to breeding of wheat cultivar resistant to crown rot in Huang huai wheat area.

      Abstract:mmature haploid embryos (n=21, ABD) were obtained by crossing durum wheat (Triticum durum, 2n=28, AABB) as the female parent and Aegilops tauschii (2n=28, DD) as the male parent. The haploid embryos were rescued by tissue culture. The plantlets regenerated were treated with colchicine to double their chromosomes and the synthetic wheat with winter growth habit were produced. The regeneration percentage of haploid plantlets was 75.81% using 1/2 MS medium only, but 92.44% haploid plantlets were obtained when the immature embryos were cultured on 1/2 MS medium and 1/2 MS medium supplemented with 2 mg/L 2,4-D alternately. The medium alternation was based on the development of immature embryos. If immature embryo developed well, 1/2 MS medium would be used; otherwise 1/2 MS medium containing 2 mg/L 2,4-D would be used. The poorly developed immature embryos grew well on the medium containing 2 mg/L 2,4-D, and then they were moved to 1/2 MS medium to produce more plantlets. double haploid plantlets (AABBDD) were gained by using 0.05% colchicine with method of half-root in plastic shed in winter. To doubling chromosomes in this season has an important reason that temperature is very beneficial for plantlets growing more strongly and having more tillers, all these made it easy to get more seeds of synthetic wheat.

      2016, 17(2):387-394.

      Abstract (1621) HTML (0) PDF 1.63 M (1520) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:Abstract: Identification of the resistance to TuMV of 127 Brassica campestris L. ssp. chinensis germplasm was conducted with the method of artificial inoculation identification and ELISA test respectively. The result showed that the DI value ranged between 3.55 and 95.68, which expressed significant difference of resistance to TuMV among accessions. Distribution plot for different resistance level to TuMV basically corresponds to normal distribution and the peak was slightly partial to susceptible region. The result of cluster analysis based on DI value was similar to that of the grading levels. 6 accessions highly resistant to TuMV and 13 accessions resistant to TuMV were screened by seedlings inoculation identification. Their main agronomic characters demonstrate abundant diversity. The number of resistance accessions with the characters of having wrinkling or pubescence on leaf surface takes a relatively higher ratio, which demonstrates that the leaf character might have a certain correlation with TuMV resistance. The result of ELISA test showed that the amount of virus in 117 materials was significantly different with P/N value ranging between 3.10 and 25.37, but it had no significant correlation with DI value. ELISA test could be used as a supplementary identification method in screening resistance materials.
