    Background: Conifers have very large genomes (13 to 30 Gigabases) that are mostly uncharacterized although extensive cDNA resources have recently become available. This report presents a global overview of transcriptome variation in a conifer tree and documents conservation and diversity of gene...

    Homologues of barley Mlo encode the only family of seven-transmembrane (TM) proteins in plants. Their topology, subcellular localization, and sequence diversification are reminiscent of those of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) from animals and fungi. We present a computational analysis of...

    Background Canola (Brassica napus L.) is one of the most important oil-producing crops in China and worldwide. The yield and quality of canola is frequently threatened by environmental stresses including drought, cold and high salinity. Calcium is a ubiquitous intracellular secondary messenger...

    GASA-like genes form multigene families in diverse plant species and encode the proteins with a unique cysteine-rich domain (GASA domain). In our previously work, we cloned a GASA-like gene PRGL (Proline-rich GASA-like) from gerbera. Here we report the expression profiles of PRGL and the...

    Degenerate primers, based on conserved subdomains of several plant serine/threonine kinases (STK) similar to the tomato Pto protein kinase, were designed to amplify similar regions from the common bean genome. Sequence analysis of the products defined five distinct classes sharing from 56.9 to...

    Background: While many studies have shown that extracellular proteins evolve rapidly, how selection acts on them remains poorly understood. We used snake venoms to understand the interaction between ecology, expression level, and evolutionary rate in secreted protein systems. Venomous snakes...

    A full-length cDNA encoding common bean ( Phaseolus vulgaris L.) sucrose synthase (designated as Pv_BAT93 Sus), which catalyses the synthesis and cleavage of sucrose, was isolated from seeds at 15 days after pollination (DAP) by rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). The full-length cDNA of...

    Background: Genes belonging to the pathogenesis related 10 (PR10) group have been studied in several plant species, where they form multigene families. Until now, such an analysis has not been performed in Vitis vinifera, although three different PR10 genes were found to be expressed under...
