Stem cells are responsible for organogenesis, but it is largely unknown whether and how information from stem cells acts to direct organ patterning after organ primordia are formed. It has long been proposed that the stem cells at the plant shoot apex produce a signal, which promotes leaf adaxial-abaxial (dorsoventral) patterning. Here we show the existence of a transient low auxin zone in the adaxial domain of early leaf primordia. We also demonstrate that this adaxial low auxin domain contributes to leaf adaxial-abaxial patterning. The auxin signal is mediated by the auxin-responsive transcription factor MONOPTEROS (MP), whose constitutive activation in the adaxial domain promotes abaxial cell fate.

The separation of male and female flowers in maize provides the potential for independent regulation of traits that affect crop productivity. For example, tassel branch number controls pollen abundance and length of shedding time, whereas ear row number directly affects kernel yield. Mutations in duplicate SBP-box transcription factor genes unbranched2 (ub2) and ub3 affect both of these yield traits. Double mutants display a decrease in tassel branch number and an increase in ear row number, both of which are enhanced by loss of a related gene called tasselsheath4 (tsh4).

Grain weight is an important crop yield component; however, its underlying regulatory mechanisms are largely unknown. Here, we identify a grain-weight quantitative trait locus (QTL) encoding a new-type GNAT-like protein that harbors intrinsic histone acetyltransferase activity (OsglHAT1). Our genetic and molecular evidences pinpointed the QTL-OsglHAT1's allelic variations to a 1.2-kb region upstream of the gene body, which is consistent with its function as a positive regulator of the traits.

A decline in rice (Oryza sativa L.) production caused by heat stress is one of the biggest concerns resulting from future climate change. Rice spikelets are most susceptible to heat stress at flowering. The early-morning flowering (EMF) trait mitigates heat-induced spikelet sterility at the flowering stage by escaping heat stress during the daytime. We attempted to develop near-isogenic lines (NILs) for EMF in the indica-type genetic background by exploiting the EMF locus from wild rice, O. officinalis (CC genome)

Using transgenic rice as a bioreactor for mass production of pharmaceutical proteins could potentially reduce the cost of production significantly. However, a major concern over the bioreactor transgenic rice is the risk of its unintended spreading into environment and into food or feed supplies. Here we report a mitigating method to prevent unwanted transgenic rice spreading by a double built-in containment strategy, which sets a selectively termination method and a visual tag technology in the T-DNA for transformation.

The translocation of the short arm of rye (Secale cereale L.) chromosome one (1RS) onto wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) chromosome 1B (1RS.1BL) is used in wheat breeding programs worldwide due to its positive effect on yield, particularly under abiotic stress. Unfortunately, this translocation is associated with poor bread-making quality. To mitigate this problem, the 1RS arm was engineered by the removal and replacement of two interstitial rye segments with wheat chromatin:

In the hybrid breeding of sugar beet, maintainer-genotype selection is a laborious process because of the dependence on test crossing, despite the very low occurrence of this genotype. Marker-assisted selection (MAS) of the maintainer genotype is highly desired by sugar beet breeders. The major restorer-of-fertility gene (Rf) was identified as Rf1, and its non-restoring allele (rf1) was discriminated at the DNA level; however, some of the rf1rf1 selections retained an as yet unidentified Rf, another target locus for MAS.

Essential tremor is one of the most frequent movement disorders of humans, but its causes remain largely unknown. In a six-generation family with both essential tremor and Parkinson disease, we identified a rare missense mutation of HTRA2 as the causative allele. Family members homozygous for this allele were more severely affected than those heterozygous for this allele.

During plant reproduction, meiosis generates haploid spores that undergo mitoses, forming gametophytes, in male and female parts of the flower. Haploid cells within gametophytes differentiate into sperm and eggs, which form the next generation. We discovered that the MOS7 (Modifier of Snc1,7) gene plays a critical role in microtubule organization and dynamics during mitosis in Arabidopsis sexual reproduction.

In nature, patterns form by self-organizing mechanisms that involve distribution of components called morphogens. In many cases, the molecular mechanisms that underlie morphogen distribution in living organisms are not well-known. In plants, a small molecule called auxin serves as a morphogen that regulates diverse developmental processes. The ability of cells to transport or accumulate auxin defines its distribution
