The article presents a study which tries to obtain a more complete overview of the potential role of PPDH2 genes in environmental adaptation in barley. It is said that temperature and day length are the main environmental factors which affect flowering and adaptation in temperate cereals like barley. The genes in barley which control flowering, include VRNH1, VRNH2, VRNH3, PPDH1, and PPDH2.

    Alternative splicing (AS) is a regulated mechanism that generates multiple transcripts from individual genes. It is widespread in eukaryotic genomes and provides an effective way to control gene expression. At low temperatures, AS regulates Arabidopsis clock genes through dynamic changes in the...

    Barley cDNA and genomic clones homologous to the Arabidopsis flowering time regulator GIGANTEA were isolated. Genetic mapping showed that GIGANTEA is present as a single copy gene in barley (3HS) and rice (1S), while two copies are present in maize (3S and 8S) at locations consistent with...

    Early flowering is an important trait influencing grain yield and quality in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) in short-season cropping regions. However, due to large and complex genomes of these species, direct identification of flowering genes and their molecular...

    This article analyses the storage conditions for hybrid lily bulbs in the course of forcing. The authors come to the conclusion that taller plants are obtained after a three week storage at a constant low temperature. The time span between planting and flowering is 60-75 days. The optimal...

    Vernalization is the promotion of the competence for flowering by long periods of low temperatures such as those typically experienced during winters. In Arabidopsis, the vernalization response is, to a large extent, mediated by the repression of the floral repressor FLC, and the stable...

    RNA silencing is a natural defence mechanism against viruses in plants, and transgenes expressing viral RNA-derived sequences were previously shown to confer silencing-based enhanced resistance against the cognate virus in several species. However, RNA silencing was shown to dysfunction at low...

    Plants use a wide range of molecular reactions for adaptation of their photosynthetic apparatus to high temperature. To understand the role of plastome genes in this process, we studied transcription of photosynthetic and household genes in plastids of 7-day-old barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.)...
